Announcement From Pastor Brad

Dear Shady Oaks Family,
Good morning. I'm sending you this email to let you know that I am resigning as Senior Pastor of Shady Oaks Baptist Church. I would have liked to tell you all in person first, but it is already out on social media. I will be making a statement this Wednesday evening at 5:45 pm during our fellowship meal time. 
Yesterday, my family and I went in view of a call at North Side Baptist Church in Weatherford, TX and accepted the position as their new Worship Pastor. I have felt the Lord leading me back into the music and worship ministry for several months. This is a passion of mine that I cannot escape.
Church family, please know that I love you dearly and this has been one of the hardest things I have done in a long time, but the calling is something that I cannot ignore. I am meeting with the Personnel Committee Tuesday evening to discuss the final details. I will let you all know more as the details progress.
Thank you so much for allowing me to serve as your pastor over these years and for loving my family through so much. I know that God has great things in store for the future of Shady Oaks and I am confident He will send the right man to lead you into that future.
At this time we are still working out the details as to when my last Sunday will be. I will let you all know as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please email me at  .
Press On,
Brad Martin | Senior Pastor
