Tracy Wood Ordained

Tracy Wood, Oregon Conference youth ministries associate director, was ordained on Oct. 14, 2006, at Big Lake Youth Camp. He and his wife Angelina were surrounded by friends, family and the Oregon Pathfinder leadership team.

Monte Torkelsen, Oregon Conference youth ministries director, told Tracy's and Angelina’s story to the group saying, "Sometimes God works on our hearts, and we find ourselves in a different places than we'd planned."

"God gives us gifts to use in ministry," said Don Livesay, Oregon Conference president, as he affirmed Tracy and Angelina for their devotion to ministry and passion for service.

Tracy and Angelina have definitely put those gifts to good use. They said, "We didn't need to come into ministry to fulfill our calling, but God had a plan for us."

The program was made extra special by Janelle Cornforth singing “You are My Destiny.” Cornforth is a good friend of Tracy’s and Angelina’s and came all the way from St. Joseph, Mich., for the ordination.
