We welcome to our staff and congregation this week Cassandra Nagle. Cassie joins us as a senior at Pepperdine University, with her family home here in greater Houston. She is discerning a possible call to church ministry and will use the next two months here at Christ the King as an intern, “shadowing” the pastoral staff, so to see just what the “inside” work of pastors and deacons is all about. This program is part of the LEAD (Living Everyday As Disciples) program of the Texas Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod. Do introduce yourself to Cassie and get to know her. We are excited and grateful that God is raising up new leaders and that Cassie is so responsive to God’s call as to learn from our ministry here at Christ the King Church.
