Brookwood Church has much to be thankful for over the last 29 years. We have a committed staff, a loyal and dedicated membership, a wonderful Pastoral staff, a debt-free building, a beautiful campus and caring servants to our community and the mission field. All of this has happened as a direct result of the strong leadership and spiritual inspiration of our founding Pastor, Perry Duggar. He has led us all with God's truth, transparency, prayer, humbleness, wisdom, a servant's heart and a commitment to God's vision for Brookwood Church.
His obedience to God's word in his messages, his life, his family and Brookwood Church has blessed many people over the years. We've had the privilege to watch him grow and pour himself into each of us, encouraging us to grow in Christ. He has set the ultimate example for us to Love God and Love People.
But now, after much prayer and meditation, Perry has decided to transition from his role as Senior Pastor of Brookwood. When Perry informed the Advisory Team of his intentions and a tentative timetable, we all prayed for the Holy Sprit's leading and direction as to how to move forward. This is how Perry has led us as a church and how we've approached every step of this succession/transition plan.
Once Perry informed us of his plans, a Succession Planning Team was formed of pastors, trustees, staff and the Human Resources Director for Brookwood. The Mission, per our by-laws as a representative group of our congregation, was to determine a transition plan for Brookwood.
