Ooltewah Baptist Church held a special commissioning service and reception for Pastor Chris Gaither and his family on January 29, 2017.
Pastor Chris had recently completed six years as our pastor when he announced that he had accepted the call into full-time missionary service with SCORE International. He will serve as their leader of missionary recruitment, training and development. SCORE International is a short-term missions organization founded in 1984 by Ron Bishop. Originally founded as a sports ministry, SCORE has evolved into a full-service missions organization. Ooltewah Baptist Church joins SCORE International in sending Pastor Chris Gaither as Christ's ambassador to the world!
Pastor, we love you! You have the support and prayers of your church family as you transition into this new area of ministry. Thank you for your faithful teaching, service, and example of following God as He calls us to join Him in His work.
