The Farmer's are Retiring!

For I am doing something
in your own day,
something you wouldn't believe
 even if someone told you about it.”
Habakkuk 1:5

It's Time to Retire

After 40 years of ministry in 10 churches, 
and nearly 13 years serving  at Moultrie First Church of the Nazarene, 
we are taking an early retirement from pastoral ministry.  

This decision, in timing and manner, was not of our making;
  however, with Mandy’s chronic illness we realize  
that the time is right and that God has a new work for us to do.
We truly love and care for the people at Moultrie First
and regret that the opportunity to say a proper goodbye 
was not provided to our family.  

Retirement Plans

We are moving to Metro-Savannah,
where we will finally be near family and
Mandy will be closer to her doctors  at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL.  

Brett was hired, literally on the spot, at the Pooler Chick Fil A. 
This is a testament to his outstanding work ethic and job record. 

We are uncertain at this time what Michael will be doing
but he will certainly be available for pulpit supply.

Our New Address

  Effective at Thanksgiving

P.O.  Box 1247 
Pooler Ga 31322
Physical Address: 
194 Sonata Circle
Pooler, GA 31322

Phone numbers will not change.

Please remember us in your prayers  during this time of transition.

Michael & Mandy Farmer
Brett & Mikaela

  3. I'll give Mike a call the next time I need someone to fill the pulpit.
    Blessings to you all, Wes Harper

  4. Mandy & Michael,

    I know this decision has been one of the most difficult of your ministry. I DO believe God will replace what the enemy has stolen. You have been facing and battling the enemy for some time--with Mandy's illness and all. My heart has been aching for and with all of you. I'm hoping and praying that with this move you will all find the peace and healing you deserve.

  5. Seasons of change are difficult. Praying for your family and trusting God to allow you the ability to recognize His fingerprints in the details!

  6. Good luck on your new chapter in life. I have no doubt that you all are in God's hands and He will care for you as He always has. Stay in touch!

  7. Blessings in your new adventures.
