Ministry & Personnel Committee Bid Farewell To Rev. Takouhi – October 7, 2020


I am so grateful to have had this ministry with The Elgin-Portland Pastoral Charge.
(September 1, 2009 – August 1, 2010 – Student Minister & February 1, 2013 – October 31, 2020 – Ordained Minister)

These pictures are a glorious reminder that even a pandemic cannot stop God from calling us into new beginnings.
Thanks be to God.

Thank YOU M & P Committee for the gift of  Your Time and Support.

**********************************************************************************************
On Wednesday evening (October 7, 2020), the M & P Committee met with Rev. Takouhi to have a conversation about her years with us in the Elgin-Portland Pastoral Charge. We talked about the highlights, the disappointments, the accomplishments, what we have learned from each other and what we (both as a Minister moving on and a Charge seeking new leadership) can offer our next relationships.

Following this conversation, and to express appreciation on behalf of both Elgin and Portland congregations for her years with us, Rev. Takouhi was presented an original painting by one of her favourite artists, Margaret Martin, a member of the Portland congregation. It is entitled, “Respite,” and depicts Portland Bay.

We also took the opportunity to send a special gift and “thank you” to Gary Petro for the many, many hours he has given us in his role as our Web Master.

We wish Rev. Takouhi nothing but the best as she takes up her new ministry on November 1, and look forward to remaining neighbours with the whole Dimirdjian-Petro family as they continue to reside in Portland.

  1. Good news and bad news – we are happy that you and the family will still be our neighbours and we will continue to enjoy your company here in Portland; the bad news for us is that we won’t continue to enjoy and participate in your pastoral duties here in Portland. God Bless and enjoy your new assignment!

  2. So very glad that you will continue to be our neighbour, friend and colleague in ministry. A loss to your previous pastoral charge, however God sends us new opportunities within our challenges. May God bless you and your family in your new pastoral home! Love.
