Big news about us here. And this went out to staff and students yesterday and today:
Dear Covenant Seminary community:
On behalf of the entire Seminary family, we want to congratulate Dr. Sean Lucas, who was elected senior minister at First Presbyterian Church, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, this past Sunday. While it is sad for us to lose the Lucases, we rejoice that one of our pastor-scholars is returning to pastoral ministry in a congregational context. We are grateful for Sean’s service over the past five years as a teacher, scholar, and administrator and for the knowledge that our association with him will continue even after he transitions south.
As we look toward the Lucases’ move in June, Sean and I will be working closely on a transition plan. As the spring continues, I will be letting the community know what those steps are, who will be taking on Sean’s responsibilities, and what our plans are for his permanent replacement. Until then, please pray for Sean, Sara, and their children, for FPC, Hattiesburg, and for the Seminary as we all experience the joy and challenge of transition in the days ahead.
Needless to say, we are very, very excited and eager to see what God is going to do for his glory at FPC, Hattiesburg, MS, in the days to come.
