On Sunday, June 22, 2014, the First Baptist Church of Morris held an Installation Service to formally recognize Pastor Micah J. Tanis. Area churches were invited to join in the service as Pastor Tanis begins his ministry in Morris. Jerry Gustafson read the church motion to call Pastor Tanis as the next pastor of First Baptist Church and recognized the Pulpit Committee's service to the church. Pastor Steve Brower of First Baptist Church in Saint Francis, MN delivered a Charge to the Congregation and Pastor Randy Tanis of Chetek, WI charged the new pastor. Pastor Brower served as Pastor Tanis' mentor while serving together on the pastoral team in Saint Francis and Randy Tanis serves as the Director of Camp Chetek where Micah volunteered his summers between college and seminary. The service concluded with an ice cream social and sweet time of fellowship with the congregation, area pastors, and family.
