Religion Digest: Pastor honored for doctorate

By Dianna Hernandez: CNJ administrative assistant

Pastor Brad Mahan, of Grace Fellowship Church in Clovis, will be honored at 1 p.m. Sunday at the church.
Mahan received a Doctor of Ministry degree Sept. 7 from Christian Life School of Theology in Georgia.
According to church member Mary Esther Marin, Mahan has been a pastor at Grace Fellowship Church since March 1999.
Marin said Mahan established the school of theology at Grace Fellowship as a satellite campus of Christian Life School of Theology. The school opened Nov. 1, 1999, and was named Grace School of Theology.
“This (theology school) enabled anyone wanting to get a degree in theology to stay here in Clovis and work in their local church,” Marin said.
