Columbus Baton-Passing This Sunday

It will be an historic day for the Columbus (Worthington), Ohio, Grace Brethren Church this Sunday, September 30, when the pastoral baton is officially passed from Jim Custer (left, in photo) to Dave Plaster (right).

Custer has been pastor of the FGBC's flagship church since 1968 and under his tenure the church has had tremendous influence in the number of Christian workers it's produced and in the number of church-plants it's fostered in the Columbus area.

Plaster is coming from the top academic administrative position at Grace College & Seminary in Winona Lake, Indiana.

Plaster will be the third pastor of the Columbus congregation (David Hocking was first), which began meeting in September 1964 with 15 members, meeting originally in the Marion Forrest home and later in a Seventh Day Adventist Church building.
