Searching For a New Senior Pastor at Stone
1. Ken has accepted a new call ...
After 9 years of faithful service to the community of Stone Presbyterian Church and San Jose, the Rev. Dr Ken Henry has been called to serve the congregation at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Charlottesville, VA.
Dr. Henry's last day at Stone was July 17, 2016. We wish Ken and his wife, Heather, well on their new adventure. This is a time of transition for God's community here at Stone Church.
2. What happens next?Stone's leadership is faithfully following Presbyterian Book of Order during this transition as we seek an interim pastoral leader and move forward to form a Pastor Nominating Committee and discover God's will for us and our leadership in the exciting future that lies ahead.
3. Rev. Jim Bender chosen as Transitional PastorJim Bender, our new Transitional Pastor, will start on October 1st with a 1 year contract at 60% (which means he won't be working 100%, so Sundays and 3 days a week in the office as well as other duties).
Jim received his Masters of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary and went on to get a Masters of Public Administration from State University of New York in Albany. He has been an ordained Presbyterian Pastor for 41 years, has served in various churches in Pennsylvania, New York, and Wisconsin before he retired from North Shore Presbyterian Church in Shorewood, WI where he served as Head of Staff for 22 years.
