HEBA team leader moving on
Keith Judson, the Regional Minister Team Leader of the Heart of England Baptist Association (HEBA), is to return to the local pastorate, he announced this week (3 July).
On Monday evening Bromsgrove Baptist Church issued a unanimous call for Keith to become its Associate Minister, working alongside Minister Paul Lewis.
This new position includes being released for two days a week to serve as Chaplain of Primrose (Day) Hospice in Bromsgrove. His role in the church will have a focus on spiritual formation, so ‘all-in-all brings together the things I’ve longed to have more time for in ministry,’ Keith said.
Keith has served at regional level for seven and a half years, which has been ‘a huge privilege… a privilege I don’t set down lightly.’
But the opportunity has come along at a point ‘when everything seems to be going very well in HEBA, which is a good time to move on.’
And he and wife Jill believe ‘this call is from the Lord, having tested things pretty thoroughly over the past couple of months.’ Keith anticipates concluding his ministry with HEBA on 30 September. He requested prayer for the HEBA team, as well the Board of Trustees who will appoint his successor.
