An Announcement from Rev. Compton 

Dear Congregation of Christ Reformed Church,

Last Friday, I was offered a professorial position at Mid-America Reformed Seminary, an appointment that will begin on June 1, 2016. After much prayer and consideration, I have chosen to accept the appointment.

Mid-America Reformed Seminary is a confessional Reformed seminary located in Dyer, IN (in the south suburbs of Chicago). It has been preparing men for ministry since 1981 and has a large number of graduates who now serve as pastors in the URCNA.

As many of you know, Old Testament studies have always been a significant part of my life. After seminary, I spent several years in graduate school studying Hebrew and Old Testament, eventually earning my M.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles. While pastoring at our church, I have also remained engaged in Old Testament studies via writing, lecturing, and participation in professional societies. Thus when Mid-America began searching for an additional professor of Old Testament, I possessed an ideal set of credentials.

Following a lengthy and thorough interview process, I was appointed by the board of Mid-America to the position of Assistant Professor. Because of this, my labors at Christ Reformed Church will conclude in May, 2016, and I will begin my appointment at Mid-America on June 1, 2016.

I am greatly humbled by this honor and praise God for allowing me this new opportunity to serve Christ’s church by helping men prepare for ministry. This coming Sunday, October 18, 2015, I will speak for a few minutes over the lunch hour to give some more information to the congregation and will also be available for a time of questions and answers.

I covet your prayers in this time for my family and me as we begin preparations to move to the Chicagoland. Please pray too for the council of our church as it begins the work of searching for a new Associate Pastor.

Humbly yours,

Andrew
