For the Rev. Tom Walker and his wife, Joany, coming to First Church of God in Inverness was like coming home.
Walker had served as church pastor from 2000 to 2006, then retired and moved to Tennessee.
“But we didn’t really retire,” Walker said. “There were four churches up there, and in that three and a half years they didn’t have a pastor, so we filled in. Then we went to Valrico last year and did the same thing. When we finished there, we came to Leesburg and bought a home.”
