Dear Church Family,

I have been blessed to serve Gordonsville Baptist Church for almost 17 years.  I have come to love my church family and I have been blessed with a great people to serve and minister alongside of.  Over the past few months, my life has taken a turn and I am having some cognitive issues that are starting to impact my memory and my preaching.  It has become more difficult and I sometimes struggle to connect the “dots,” so to speak

I am grateful for you, my church family, in being patient with what I am experiencing.  I will soon be under the care of a neurologist at UVA to help me with this new “wrinkle” in my brain.  I covet your prayers as I go through the process and whatever it takes to help me to rememberfocus and be a good servant of the Lord.

With this being said, I plan to retire from Gordonsville Baptist Church on December 31, 2022.

 

Blessings to All,

Pastor R. Wayne Collis
