Perhaps you have noticed, but this site has been pretty quiet for the last few months. While the site was quiet, the rest of my life has not been. I had lots going on in just about every area of my life, and I needed to take a step back to seek God and work through everything privately as I figured out what my next step would be in my ministry journey.
I have spent extended time alone with God on a spiritual retreat, enjoyed a great vacation with my family, had numerous conversations with the leadership of my church and my inner core of confidants, and prayed A LOT.
This last weekend everything went public to our church, and now to you. On August 1st, I will for the first time in my ministry career, not be a youth pastor. I am staying at Cloverdale and taking a new position as Associate Pastor to Families.
I am excited for a new challenge. I am excited that I don’t have to say goodbye to the Cloverdale family. I am excited to see God work in new ways. I am excited to still contribute to the youth ministry world from a different perspective. I am excited that I can once again be at peace and fight for God with everything I have as I fulfill his will for me.
From this point, I hope to jump back in with writing and speaking as well, so please keep checking back, reading, and listening. I’m excited for the future, and I’m honored to share my journey with you!
