christian challenge names new senior pastor

buddy martin has led his flock of christian workers for 30 years. from humble beginnings as a storefront church in boyce, louisiana, to christian challenge international, brother buddy has followed god's guidance in establishing a place where he can train workers and missionaries for god's service.

this past sunday, brother buddy passed the mantle of leadership to his son, nathan martin. although nathan is now senior pastor of the church his father founded, he insists that the course god has set for christian challenge will not change. "i can say that we will not make any abrupt changes in the mission of this church," said nathan. both brother buddy and his son nathan, recognize that each shepherd is different and each shepherd approaches his mission in a marginally different way. however, the mission itself, set forth by god doesn't change.

with this change of leadership, brother buddy will assume the role of "founding pastor," and insists that his ministry will continue as he pursues his writing, on-line counseling, some travel, and whatever else the lord has in store for him.
