THE TRANSITION JOURNEY OF SGAC

The Transition Journey that we have been on for the past sixteen months has been preparing you for your next transition, the embracing of a new lead pastor. Today we are going on a transitional tour, reminding us of all that we have accomplished in this time and how we are now ready to move into the next chapter in the life and ministry of SGAC. You have a great heritage to build on and God has plans to come alongside of you to lead you “to be mature disciples of Jesus Christ, led by the Holy Spirit, engaged and equipped, advancing the kingdom of God in Spruce Grove and the World.”
