Rick was ordained and installed as a minister in the PCA on Sunday night. This is the end/beginning of a very long journey. He was in seminary for 8 years. Again, this was because he also was/is working full time as a software engineer. After graduation, he began an intense examination process. He was tested in the English Bible, Theology, Book of Church Order, Church History, and the Sacraments. After passing the written version of these tests, he was examined in each area in front of presbytery. All of that was completed last month and this past Sunday night, he was officially ordained and installed. He will continue to work at his job as a software engineer while continuing in the church planting call as the pastor.

It was a really wonderful night. And now here is a sneak peak of what happened next. Rick had the privilege to baptize Miles. I'll post on that next.
