Pastor returns to Navy

Rev. Dan Klender, pastor of Grace Bible Church in Walla Walla, WA, was in the Navy Reserve in 2005, when he was commissioned to active duty. He spent 8 months in Iraq. He has resigned his pastorate of the church and turned it over to Rev. Dave Jones, the interim pastor for Klender when he was in Iraq in 2005.

Klender will be going to Fort Gordon, near Augusta, GA, for a 3 year assignment. He will be Chaplain to the sailors who will be dispatched to Iraq.

Klender said he ``just felt a compulsion with the Lord'' to return to active service and looked forward to working with the sailors and Marines he will meet.
