Welcome to New ISAAC Clergy

A very warm welcome to the new clergy at three of our ISAAC member congregations–Rev. John Best at Pine Island Presbyterian Church, Pastor Chuck Moerdyk at North Presbyterian Church, and The Rev. Mike Wood at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church.  We are very pleased to have each of you in our ISAAC Family!  We look forward to the insights you’ll bring to our work together, building the Beloved Community. Thank you for these words:

Pine Island Church is one of the few multi-racial, multi-cultural congregations in the Kalamazoo area.  We are committed to ISAAC’s vision of living into the Blessed Community.   – Rev. John Best

Although facing many of the challenges that confront smaller congregations with (temporarily) declining membership, North Presbyterian remains committed to its ministry to disadvantaged populations.  We continue striving to fulfill the Commandments of Jesus that we should feed the hungry, clothe the naked, heal the sick, and provide for those who are sometimes abandoned by society at large.   – Pastor Chuck Moerdyk

St. Barnabas Episcopal Church joins with ISAAC in the work of pursuing social justice and equity, and in the building of a beloved community that, in response to God’s great love, supports and welcomes all.   – The Rev. Mike Wood
