Weather Forecast for Quincy First Baptist Church welcomes new pastor's education, expertence First Baptist Church is pleased to welcome Dr. Ryan Nielsen as its new pastor. As a Quincy resident of three years, he is already well-acquainted with the community. He taught at Plumas Christian School from 2011 until spring 2014, and began working at Chamber Nation in September 2013. His education, experience and skills have equipped him to step into the senior pastorate at FBC. Nielsen received his B.A. in English literature from Whittier College, his M.A, in youth and family ministry from Denver Seminary and both his M.Div. and doctorate degrees from Fuller Seminary. The level of education he brings to this position enhances his ability to fully engage in tough theological problems, as well as the practicalities of family issues and church life. Nielsen has a long history of youth ministry experience. His call to youth ministry began in 1991 when, as a freshman in college, he was hired as the youth pastor at Armenian Christian Fellowship of Orange County. Since that time, Nielsen spent 20 years working in youth ministry in California, Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas and Denmark. In 1995, he started his own youth ministry webs|re,, which provides free resources to individuals in more than 165 countries around the world. In 2005 Nielsen married his wife, Christ|anna. They adopted two daughters, Magali and Miley, in 2010. In 2011 the family moved to Quincy, where Dr. Ryan Nielsen both Christ|anna and Ryan began teaching at Plumas Christian School. At that same time, Ryan and Christ|anna's niece, Katherine, came to live with them in order to attend Plumas Christian School. Currently Christ|anna teaches first grade at the school. Ryan taught junior high Bible class, high school Bible class and computer skills classes for both junior and senior high school. He remains the education, training systems and support director at Chamber Nation. Nielsen's ministry strengths include small group development, teaching, leading, writing and creative events. These skills, combined with his educational background and pastoral experience, have prepared him to lead a community of believers seeking to serve God and make a difference in their woHd, says FBC. He said he is very excited to be the new senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Quincy. Group encourages parents t, vaccinate children In recognition of National Immunization Awareness Month (August), Planned Parenthood is encouraging parents to get their children, both boys and girls aged 11 - 12, vaccinated for the human papillomavirus (HPV). The month reminds all people to protect their health by getting immunized agMnst infectious diseases. New data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that despite an increase in vaccination coverage since 2012, the number of girls and boys aged 13 - 17 years receiving the HPV vaccine remains very low. Only 57 percent of adolescent girls have received one or more doses of HPV vaccine and adolescent boys lag behind at 35 percent. The data also demonstrated the important role clinician recommendations can play in parents' decisions to vaccinate their children, Seventy-four percent of parents who vaccinated their daughters against HPV and 72 percent of parents who vaccinated their sons received the benefits, safety and availability of the HPV vaccine." Planned Parenthood reports that t plays a key role in educating parents and adolescents about the HPV vaccine and providing vaccinations. Today, the vast majority of Planned Parenthood health centers provide the HPV vaccine (more than 550 of the more than 700 health centers provide it), and in 2012, Planned Parenthood health centers provided nearly 40,000 HPV vaccinations. "As the nation's leading provider and advocate of high-quality; affordable health care for women, men and young people, Planned Parenthood is proud to provide parents with information and education about vaccinating their children against HPV," said Cecile Richards, president, Planned Parenthood Federation of America. "This month, we encourage parents and young adults to visit their health care provider to discuss the benefits of getting vaccinated against HPV."

Planned Parenthood recommends the following for anyone having any kind of sexual contact: --Get the HPV vaccine. Talk to your doctor or health care professional to learn more about getting vaccinated. --Use a condom. Condoms may lower the risk of HPV if used correctly every time you have sex. However, HPV can be transmitted from skin-to-skin contact and it can infect areas that are not covered by a condom -- so condoms do not fully protect against HPV. --Get a regular Pap test starting at age 21. While a Pap test doesn't directly diagnose HPV, it can look for abnormal cells (that are caused by HPV) in the cervix before the cells become pre-cancer or cancer. Planned Parenthood believes that everyone deserves access to affordable, quality health care, and is here to help people stay safe and healthy, say the group's leaders.
