Dr. Michael Dent, Senior Pastor at Marvin United Methodist church in Tyler, will be leaving Tyler next month. He has accepted a position at a church in Denver, Colorado. Although he is excited about his new appointment, he says it's hard to leave.
"Even though it's many weeks away, 6 or 7 weeks, the grieving is already setting in as I get gracious and kind emails from people who say what this ministry has meant for them and their family spiritually. That is very touching and I give God all the praise and glory for that," says Dr. Michael Dent.
Dr. Dent says he has been proud to be a part of a community that works to make life better for those who are less fortunate.
