Pastoral Transition

Dear Friends and Members of LPC,

After 46 years of service to Laguna Presbyterian Church as Senior Pastor and Head of Staff, Rev. Jerry Tankersley is retiring at the end of June 2018. Below are Jerry’s Pastoral Letter dated February 28, 2018 as well as the Boundaries Covenant of the Presbytery of Los Ranchos and Separation Ethics document for when a Pastor and Congregation say “goodbye.” Please make use of these documents to help you understand the pastoral transition process.

Laguna Presbyterian Church is grounded in the confidence that God is with them. Transitions are often difficult. The Spirit of God will cover LPC and in a season of uncertainty, grief, and transition, God’s will and purpose will emerge – and it will be, like Creation – spectacular! Please contact the Church Office with questions.
