A Message from Senior Pastor Jeff Tengesdal


A Message from Senior Pastor Jeff Tengesdal: With profound gratitude for his four-year ministry at First English, we are sad to have received the resignation of Pastor Bryan effective Dec. 30, 2016. (His letter of resignation is available here.) Pastor Bryan has been a great pastor, a solid leader of our youth and family ministries, and a wonderful colleague. Please join us in offering a blessing to Pastor Bryan and his wife Nicole at any of the worship services on Sunday, Dec. 18. Also on the same day, help us express our gratitude at a reception in their honor at the North Site following the 10:30 a.m. worship service.
