A New Pastor in Clitherall..

God is amazing in how He organizes opportunities. One year ago, Aaron and Melanie Simon knew that God was directing them to move to Minnesota from Rifle, Colorado to start a pastoral internship. They began attending Basswood Baptist Church in Richville, Minnesota. Around the same time that they began attending Basswood, Paul Twist, the recently retired pastor of Lakes Community Church in Clitherall, Minnesota started attending as well.
Within a week, Aaron approached Basswood's pastor, Bert Holmquist asking if he and the church would be interested in taking Aaron on as an intern. They prayerfully accepted Aaron's request. Aaron was given many opportunities to preach and lead Bible studies. In actuality, God had blessed Aaron with two mentors. Pastor Bert Holmquist and Pastor Paul Twist both discipled him throughout the year. As his internship reached its end, Pastor Paul asked Aaron if he was ready to lead a church. It was then that Aaron received opportunities to preach at Lakes Community Church in Clitherall, Minnesota.
