Interfaith group adopts new name

Members of the former Ministerial Alliance voted last month to change their name to Fellowship of Christian Pastors, said Fellowship president David McAfee.

One of the group’s first activities is the sponsorship of a “Family Night in Tucumcari” picnic that will be from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday at the softball fields by the Tucumcari Convention Center, McAfee said.

The event will include food, games and live music. There is no charge.

The officers and membership of the Fellowship of Christian Pastors are:

• David England, senior pastor, First Baptist Church
• Tom Broom, senior pastor, Center Street United Methodist Church
• Derek Owen, senior pastor, First Assembly of God
• Rick Haymaker (Secretary) worship leader, Father’s Forge
• Grover Garrett, interim pastor, Immanuel Baptist Church
• David McAfee (President) senior pastor, Trinity Baptist Church
