Today, I want to feature Eric Laverentz from Presbyterian Church of Stanley.
Eric, originally from Kearney, Missouri (home of The James Gang), was just called as pastor of Stanley Pres this year. He comes to the area from Dayton, Ohio. He and his wife are expecting their first child in May. And he was featured in the KC Star back in February.
By moving in the neighborhood, I believe he just became the youngest pastor within 1 mile of Grace. (I think I had that award for the last 10 years.) He’s 36. I’m 38.
His "one big prayer request" for his church is that, as he settles into the ministry in OPKS, God would continue to increase the passion and fire that the Lord gave his church when they were between pastors.
Would you pause just a moment and lift Eric and Stanley Pres up in prayer? Thanks.
