The examining board of the Florida District of Grace Brethren Churches has recommended to Wade Rininger’s local church that he be ordained into the Christian ministry. He was examined earlier this week. In the photo at right are pastors Randy Weekley, Jim Poyner, Steve Shipley, Rich Schnieders, Wade Rininger, Matt Wheelock, Dan Younger, and Gerardo Leiton.
Wade and his wife, Anna, and their family attend the Pinellas Park Grace Brethren Church where Anna’s father, Randy Weekley, is pastor. Wade has the long-term goal of creating a movement of new churches in Florida, Watershed Community. He also serves as the district missions contact for the Sunshine State.
