Geoff Hammond, the former president of the North American Mission Board until last August, is the new interim pastor of Wynnbrook Baptist Church.
His first day is Sunday.
Wynnbrook has been led on an interim basis by the Rev. Kevin Calhoun, formerly of Hilton Terrace Baptist, for 15 months. The Rev. Brad Hicks is the former senior pastor who left in 2008. He led the church for more than 25 years.
"We're excited about him being here," Calhoun said Wednesday of Hammond. "He's got some good, fresh ideas."
When Hammond begins, Calhoun will become the church administrator.
Wynnbrook is on River Knoll Way near Brookstone School.
