Gentle Reformation is happy that three new contributors are coming on board! In the days ahead you should see their information loading up and contributions coming from them. Here is the briefest of introductions to these newest GenRef Gents.
Nathan Eshelman is the pastor of the Los Angeles Reformed Presbyterian Church. Trained at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Nathan is well-read and witty to boot. If his posts at his personal blog Presbyterian Thoughts are any indication, we should see Scriptural meditations, book reviews, updates on theological and church matters, etc. He and others have been stirred by God to prayer for the West Coast and to see the church revived in that region. Nathan and his wife, Lydia, have four children.
Brad Johnston is the pastor of the Topeka Reformed Presbyterian Church. Brad has a journalistic mind and training. I saw this firsthand when he served in a summer internship with our congregation, working with the Kokomo Tribune while helping us in ministry here. He created and has been keeping the RPC Facebook page updated, which has attracted over 1400 “Likers” to it. I expect Brad will share with us important web articles, family and discipleship encouragements, book reviews, some church news, etc. Brad and his wife, Sue, have four children.
Andrew Quigley is the pastor of the Airdrie Reformed Presbyterian Church of Scotland. From Northern Island, Andrew has been called and used by the Lord to help rebuild the church in Scotland. He has been writing many helpful articles in various publications on evangelism, discipleship, and church growth, and I trust we will benefit from those things and more here. This summer he is on a pulpit exchange with Pastor David Reese, so he is enjoying both the saints and the scenery of Colorado. He and his wife, Heather, have six children.
Speaking of Facebook “Likers,” just this week we now have our own Gentle Reformation Facebook page. Since we uhh, like, you know, like to be liked, how about, like, going there and, like, becoming one of our “Likers”? Seriously, we hope that not only will you be encouraged by the posts, but in sharing them help (depending on the post) evangelize, edify or encourage a friend. Thanks!
