Les Zollbrecht Ordained

The chapel at Portland Adventist Academy (PAA) was filled to overflowing on Sabbath, Nov. 19, 2005, as Les Zollbrecht was ordained to gospel ministry. “This is a recognition of what God has already done in Les’ life,” said Don Livesay, Oregon Conference president. “We’re saying, ‘yeah, we can see it too!’”

“Les has grown up with the knowledge that he is a citizen of the kingdom,” Pastor Henry Zollbrecht said as he presented his son as a candidate for ordination. “In his ministry for Christ, he wants it to be enjoyable.”

During the service, parent after parent and student after student stood to confirm Zollbrecht’s ministry as the chaplain and a Bible teacher at PAA. They spoke of his enthusiasm for life, his compassion for others, and his commitment to Christ. “If you spend just five minutes with Les,” said Tyson Haynes, a PAA graduate, “your life is that much better.”
