BUV Ordination Service: Congratulations Lance

Published on March 1, 2022

This Saturday, March the 5th, family, friends and those from our wider Baptist network will gather to take part in an Ordination service for those who have completed their time of study and preparation at the Baptist Union of Victoria. This includes NewHope’s own Lance Blythe.

Ordination is an action of God, together with the whole church, which affirms the gifts, calling and faithful service of men and women who desire to serve as pastoral leaders committed to the ministry of the Gospel.

Saturday’s service will be a special time of testimony, prayer, vows and commissioning. A celebration of hard work and dedication.

Congratulations Lance! We are proud of you and grateful for your wise, humble and faithful leadership among us. May God continue to bless and empower your ministry.

The Ordination Service will be live streamed on Saturday, March 5th at 11am. To view online please use this link: https://youtu.be/55hoZXdYtCM
