Our Pastor


The RBC Leadership Team is pleased to announce that the Church Body unanimously voted on February 23rd to extend a Call to Ministry as Lead Pastor to Seth Powers. Seth has accepted the call and will be coming to RBC sometime in the spring. When an exact date has been set, we will publish details for the Installation Service and the transfer of ministry from Pastor Carpenter to Pastor Seth. Please join us in thankful praise to God that He has shown us the man that He has for us as Pastor. Also, pray for continued guidance and blessings for Pastor Seth and his family during this time of transition into the new ministry.
