More than 10 years ago, God began speaking to Kenton and Laurie Beshore about the future of Mariners. They knew the time would come to pass the baton of leadership to the next generation. This led them to begin a journey of prayer and discernment alongside the Elder Board to best prepare for a transition one day. This year Kenton and Laurie have heard God say, "It’s time."
It’s time for the next generation to lead our church into the future and keep moving Mariners forward. It's time for Kenton and Laurie to bless the next generation through coaching and mentoring. It’s time for a change of pace for Kenton and Laurie so they can pursue the new work God is calling them to. It’s time for Mariners Church to search for its next Senior Pastor.
This is an exciting time for the life of our church. We’ll keep doing everything God has called us to—to inspire people to follow Jesus and fearlessly change the world—while looking ahead with anticipation for what’s to come.
God has been faithful in the past and we are confident He will continue to be. Watch this video on the history of Mariners Church.
