Pastor Lacey's Ordination to the Gospel Ministry

  • First Baptist Waynesboro 301 South Wayne Avenue Waynesboro, VA, 22980 United States (map)

First Baptist is excited to announce the ordination of Lacey Wondree. 

Theologian Eugene Peterson once said, “Ordination is both a 'call from above' and a 'call from below.'"

The "call from above" means there is sufficient evidence that the call the minister feels on her life is God-inspired. The "call from below" is the decision from within the congregation to accept her leadership into the life of the church. 

For us Baptists, ordination is the celebration of both of these calls.

On October 11, 2017, after multiple rounds of conversation, book studies, and essay writing, the Ordination Council recommended to the church Lacey’s candidacy for ordination. The vote passed unanimously.

The ordination ceremony is set for November 12, 2017, at 5:00 pm in the sanctuary. We will practice the time-honored tradition of laying on of hands as well as speak words of blessing.
