Announcing Our New Pastor-Teacher!

It’s with all praise and glory to God and with great joy that we announce the end of our pastoral search at High Point!

As of today, our congregation voted unanimously to install Pastor Matt Tarr in the position of Pastor-Teacher. Pastor Matt has been contacted by our Elders, and has officially accepted the call to be our new under-shepherd!

Matt is currently finishing up his studies at The Master’s Seminary in Southern California after which he, along with his wife, Melody, and their son, will be relocating to Northeastern Pennsylvania to join our flock.

We eagerly look forward to many years of ministry with the Tarr family, and we thank God for using Grace Advance to bring us such a faithful man!

Please keep an eye out for more information as we anticipate Pastor Matt assuming his role in our local body later this fall.
