Leadership Announcement - March 14, 2021
It is with mixed emotion that Glad Tidings Church announces the resignation of our Lead Pastor, Jeff Quigley effective May 1st, 2021.
Pastor Quigley, his wife, Cindy and their three children moved to Rochester, NY in 2008 when Pastor Jeff accepted the call as Lead Pastor of Glad Tidings Church.
Under his spiritual leadership, Glad Tidings experienced significant growth and long-lasting change, as Pastor Jeff equipped, inspired, and challenged us to share the Gospel with others and to live on mission, Being God-People where we Live, Work, Play, and Worship.
Committed to creating a more welcoming and inviting place of worship and community space, Pastor Jeff led numerous building renovations and campus improvements, enabling Glad Tidings to open its doors to host and minister to various support and recovery groups, The American Red-Cross, and to our neighbors through annual events such as Fun Day.
A visionary with an appreciation for ministry through technology, Pastor Jeff has brought Glad Tidings Church into the 21st century, by introducing and implementing technological tools to enable Glad Tidings to minister to and share the Gospel with others beyond our building’s walls.
Above all, his love of Jesus Christ, and his commitment to the sharing of the Gospel with others, in truth and love so that every individual, no matter their circumstance, would have the opportunity to enter into a real relationship with Jesus, and through Christ, have eternal life, has been at the center of all that he has done, and has been an example to us all.
The Quigley children are now grown, living out-of-state, and their two daughters have growing families of their own! Pastor Jeff and Cindy will be moving to Texas in the near future, where they can be reunited with family and where they will continue to share the Gospel, and to live on mission, Being God-People where they Live, Work, Play, and Worship!
While we are saddened by this news, we of Glad Tidings Church are exceedingly grateful to Pastor Jeff for his faithful service, teaching and leadership, and for being a living example of a God-person to us all.
Together we pray God’s continued rich blessings over Pastor Jeff and Cindy. They will forever be GT Family.
- In Love from the Council of Glad Tidings Church
