Josh McPherson serves as lead pastor of Grace Covenant Church in Wenatchee WA, a church he helped plant in 2008. He is a member of Acts 29 and graduated from the Resurgence Training Center in 2010. He also holds an undergraduate degree in biblical studies and is currently finishing his graduate degree from Western Seminary. He and his wife Sharon have four children: Ella Mae, Levi Gregory, Amelia Claire, and Gideon Joshua.
The questions of the evening are in the title of the post. Clarifying comment from readers is invited ... though apparently few dare to actually comment on blog posts at Wenatchee the Hatchet even when commentary and clarification is solicited. There were some comments in the last year and a half about the possibility of some collaboration of some kind left here and there at this blog but you probably won't be able to find those if you look for them. This was something only on the periphery of Wenatchee The Hatchet's radar in the last year or so but the emergence of McPherson in the pastor listings does raise/invite a question as to whether or not church assimilations are happening even as Mars Hill has been in some kind of financial nosedive this year.
Interesting to see that there were actual graduates of the Resurgence Training Center in 2010. So there was at least one graduating class, maybe in two stages? But that's blogging for some other time.
This was a church with MH connections brought to Wenatchee's attention earlier this year but the Result Source controversy sort of overpowered considerations of whether or not some assimilation of Grace Covenant into Mars Hill might have been getting considered. McPherson just showing up in the pastors roster of Mars Hill would appear, in light of Mars Hill history, to have now rendered such a question moot ... in a way.
