SPRINGDALE, Ark.—Cross Church voted for their next senior pastor during their 11 morning services today (April 28).
Nick Floyd, son of previous senior pastor Ronnie Floyd and lead teaching pastor at the church, was elected and affirmed "in an overwhelming manner," according to Cross Church's tweet.
Brian Dunaway serves as the director of communications and technology for Cross Church and said the congregation looks forward to Nick stepping in.
"People have really gotten behind the decision and believe, as the board of directors did as well, that God was calling Nick to be the next senior pastor and that was proven today when they voted on it," Dunaway said.
Leeroy Crossland is a member of Cross Church in Fayetteville where Nick currently preaches. Nick has raised attendance numbers at the campus to nearly 3,000 people each Sunday. Crossland said that experience will make him a great pastor and leader for the entire congregation.
"He is just an incredible guy—I have nothing but good things to say about Nick," Crossland said. "He is an incredible leader, great pastor and just a really good friend."
Nick will become the next senior pastor at the end of service on May 19.
