We will be commissioning two men this coming Sunday: David Apple as the interim MercyNet Director and Bryan Stoudt as Director of Medical Campus Outreach. You will recall that Tenth is loaning David for a period of one year to help MercyNet get established. Bryan is a former intern of Tenth and so is returning in a sense. Both men will be commissioned at both morning services.
