Deacon Joshua Justice, faithful for almost 10 years as a deacon of Covenant Bible Fellowship, is being recognized for God's call on his life and is being lifted by a presbytery of local pastors and with the prayers of attending saints to the status of Elder and Associate Pastor of Covenant Bible Fellowship.
Pastor Emeritus Charles P. Clawson, the founding pastor and Joshua's grandfather, is the officiant. Attending pastors include Mike Murray of Covenant Christian of Colonial Heights, Bruce Catron of the First Congregationalist Church of Hopewell, and Billy Robertson of Covenant Bible Fellowship of Petersburg. (It also happens to be Pastor Clawson's 86th birthday.)
