Anglo church closes, hands keys to Hispanic congregation
from Baptist Press
As the upbeat praise service began, John Minor stood in the back of the auditorium with Bible in hand and a contented smile on his face. Minor was waiting to preach the final sermon as pastor of Woodland Baptist Church in north Wichita, Kan. The June 27 service also marked the end of Woodland's 45-year existence as a church. Although some tears were shed, the service was not a funeral. Instead, Woodland passed the ministry baton to Iglesia Bautista Nueva Vida. The Hispanic congregation had been sharing the Woodland facility since December 2007 right after it constituted.
