Illinois Pastor of Thirty-One Years Retires

Karen Storey announced her retirement from pastoring on Sunday, September 20, during the morning service at Worth, Illinois. She faithfully pastored in the Murphysboro and Chicago (now Worth), Illinois, churches for the past thirty-one years. We are thankful for the years of service she and her husband, Eddie, have devoted to the work of the Lord. They are now making plans to move to Van Buren, Arkansas, to be closer to her mother.

Olubunmi (Bunmi) Omitoyin has accepted the role of pastor in Worth. He began preaching in 1989 in Zaria, Kaduna, which is in the northern part of Nigeria. He and his wife, Janet, moved from Lagos, Nigeria, to the Chicago area in 1997. He has served faithfully as a minister for three decades.

The official transition is scheduled for Monday, October 5. We pray God’s blessing upon all involved—the Storeys as they prepare to move, Brother Bunmi and Sister Janet as they step into their new roles, and the saints as they adjust to new leadership.
