On Tuesday, Nov 28, you should have received an email from Pastor Robert Wachs announcing that he has resigned as the Lead Pastor of Newbreak Church. While we are saddened to see Pastor Robert go, we know that God has a plan both for Pastor Robert and Lisa, as well as Newbreak Church.
You might be wondering what’s next for our church. After much prayer, Newbreak’s elder board has asked our Legacy Pastor, Mike Quinn, along with his wife, Teresa, to step in as interim Lead Pastor. Pastor Mike and Teresa have faithfully led this church since its inception in 1986, and we believe their leadership will bring the wisdom and stability we need as we all navigate this transition together.
As a board, we also have the utmost confidence in the existing team (Pastors JoAnn, Markus, Jared, Brayden, and the rest of our amazing staff) to continue leading alongside Pastor Mike during this season of transition. They have been and will continue to carry out the church’s mission to connect people with God, through authentic relationships, to serve the community. We are thankful for our Pastoral team’s commitment to serve and encourage you to express your support to them through prayer and words of encouragement.
Church, we feel confident that God’s plan for Newbreak Church is beyond anything we could ask or imagine, and we ask that you continue to join us in prayer as we take these next steps. Pray for your Pastors, church leaders, and the Wachs family, and above all, ask God to show you how He wants to use you and your Newbreak Church family to multiply His Kingdom.
“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:16-20 (NIV)
