It was my privilege on Sunday, January 5, 2015 to formally install Dr. Byron Schortinghouse as the new pastor at Pompano Beach First Church of the Nazarene, following the resignation of Pastor Eric Reynolds, who has accepted a ministry assignment in the Kansas City area.
Dr. Schortinghouse and his wife Leanna are no strangers to the Southern Florida District. As teenagers they met at Southern Florida District NYI events on the Fort Lauderdale mission area. Following their marriage they pastored the Carol City and Avon Park churches on this district. They then spent several years in foreign missionary service in New Zealand, Australia and Papua New Guinea, and served in the Asia-Pacific regional office as assistant to the Director. In 1994 Byron was elected superintendent of the Southern Florida District and served eleven years here before being appointed superintendent of the Arizona District, where he served for six years. They have most recently been serving in the pastorate of the Mt. Olive Church of the Nazarene in Wrightsville, Georgia.
Joan and I are delighted to have our good friends, the Schortinghouses, back home on the Southern Florida District! We believe they will provide excellent leadership at Pompano Beach First Church. Dr. Schortinghouse is serving under a two-year appointment by the DS, and the local church has received them warmly. Yesterday’s service was anointed of the Lord, as Pastor Schortinghouse brought an inspiring message, the altar became a place of grateful and transformative encounter with God, and the congregation celebrated their new pastor. A time of warm fellowship and a celebratory meal with the board and staff followed the service. The future looks bright for the mission field of Pompano Beach.
