FOWLER, Col.—The congregation of Faith Baptist Church, Fowler, Col., have said goodbye to Pastor Ron McLucas and his wife, Janice, during a recent retirement service.
A graduate of Baptist Bible Seminary in Johnson City, N.Y., McLucas served as a pastor for 50 years, serving the last 15 at Faith Baptist. The McLucas’ will move to Missionary Acres, a retirement community operated by Baptist Mid-Missions in Silva,

“We are very sad to see them go,” said Karen Norton, a church member quoted in the Fowler Tribune, “but at the same time [we are] excited for them. Excited because the place where they are going is beautiful and they feel that this is what the Lord has led them to do.”

Pastor McLucas intends to continue with a pulpit supply ministry and possibly serve in the future as an interim pastor.
