Rev. Josh Hahne Senior Pastor Elect

Dear Redeemer Family and Friends,

We are excited to announce that Rev. Josh Hahne was elected on Sunday to become Redeemer’s next senior pastor, and that vote was approved by the South Coast Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in America on Tuesday!

Sunday’s election had zero “No” votes, 77 “Yes” votes, and three abstains. Praise be to God for such overwhelming unity, support and confidence in Josh Hahne and for the work of the Pastoral Search Committee (PSC), Session, and Redeemer staff!

It has been our privilege to serve you as Redeemer’s PSC over these past six months and we now look forward to what God has in store for our church in the years to come.

As for next steps, the PSC has concluded our work and are handing over Josh’s transition to the Session. In the coming weeks the Session will be working with Josh regarding his move and transition to Redeemer this fall. The details regarding Josh’s start date and installation service will be announced as soon as they are finalized.

Please join us in thanksgiving and prayer for the following:

- Praise be to God for the election of Rev. Josh Hahne as Redeemer’s next senior pastor.
- Praise be to God for such a strong unity, support, and confidence for Josh Hahne and the work of the PSC, Session and Redeemer staff.
- Prayer for a smooth move and transition for Josh and his family from Arizona to California.
- Prayer for a healthy departure and transition for Josh’s current church, King of Kings Church.
- Prayer for Redeemer as we prepare to receive and install a new senior pastor.

In Christ and with gratitude,
Redeemer’s Pastoral Search Committee
