Over the past several years I have come to understand more and more that life is a journey. We take steps down a path that leads us onward into the future. Our paths are not always easy. We rarely see what is beyond the next bend. But if we are following and trusting our God to lead the way, he is always faithful and will always lead us through - he leads us beside still waters, he makes us lie down in green pastures, he leads us through the valley of the shadow of death - no matter what our circumstance, we serve a God who is in control.
These past 8 months, as Nancy and I have been walking down the path on this journey of life, we have been seeking and praying for God's direction in our lives. Even though leaving our family at Southbrook was not easy, God has used this "in between" time to mold us into the people He wants us to be as we take new steps down a new path. This week, God has opened a new door of ministry for us at Lee Park Church in Monroe, NC.
Today I start in a new ministry position as the Associate Connections Pastor. I will be working with an amazing staff, under the leadership of Pastor Chris Justice, to help people get connected and stay connected throughout their time at Lee Park.
We know that God is guiding us on this journey. We are so excited to have been welcomed into a wonderful and loving church family. We are looking ahead with anticipation as this next chapter in our lives begins to unfold.
