If you are in the Los Angeles area, you only have a few more weeks to see and hear White Horse Inn cohost Ken Jones before he takes up his new call at Glendale Missionary Baptist Church in Miami, Florida.

Ken will be preaching through the end of May at Greater Union Baptist Church in Compton, California, where he has served as pastor since 1990.  This Saturday, May 22, at 9:00 a.m., you can also hear Ken speak at the men's breakfast at Calvary Presbyterian Church in Glendale, California.  If you plan to attend, please RSVP to (818) 244-3747 or office@churchonglendale.org.

Ken's first Sunday at GMBC will be June 6. His formal installation as the fifth pastor of the church will take place on June 27th.  I asked Ken a few questions about his move and his future with White Horse Inn:
After 21 years at Greater Union, why did you accept a call to Glendale? I wasn't looking to leave Greater Union. The church is going well; we've seen tremendous growth--not just in terms of attendance, but also in the quality of our members and their life as disciples.  But I could see that what we were privileged to participate in at Greater Union was needed at Glendale and that seemed like a great fit for me and my wife, Lisa.

You've been on the White Horse Inn panel for more than ten years. How will your work with White Horse Inn inform your work at Glendale Baptist? The thing that ties together all the different themes that Mike, Kim, Rod, and I take up each week on White Horse Inn is preaching. People and churches who encounter the Reformation can become intellectually convinced of the truth of the doctrine of justification, for instance, but it isn't until that truth soaks through the preaching that a church experiences real change.  Preaching is the key. Too often it is inconsistent (I even saw that in my own life as I began to grapple with and understand the doctrines of the Reformation). So, I hope to bring consistent Christ-centered preaching and a Christ-centered hermeneutic to my new role as the pastor at Glendale Missionary Baptist Church.  It benefited Greater Union, it will benefit Glendale, and it will benefit any church that is new to the Reformation.

At the most recent taping for White Horse Inn, Ken made a few comments about his move.[audio:http://www.whitehorseinn.org/songs/kenjones.mp3]

Ken and the elders and congregation at Glendale Missionary Baptist Church are committed to his continuing to participate as a cohost of White Horse Inn. So, even though his ministerial duties have changed, we're glad to say that his voice will still be heard each week on White Horse Inn!

    Yes- very glad to hear you will still be doing the show and I am also very happy for the saints in Miami that are about to get a solid dose of the good news.

    I hope this means that the WHI presence will be more prominent in the southeast! Glad to hear Ken will still be doing the show.

    Wow! Congratulations! Compton's loss is Miami's gain. Agreed that KJ still needs to be part of the show and that a greater East Coast presence is always welcome.

    In all honesty, I was hoping that you would be in Southern California a little longer. Miami's gain is our loss. However, it comforts my heart to know that you (Pastor Ken) will continue with the White Horse Inn. Thank you for your faithful service in a community that many have overlooked. We were so grateful for the opportunity to worship with the congregation of Greater Union and trust that the sheep will continue to be fed by those who follow in your footsteps.
