As we begin the new year, we can’t help but be attentive to the new things God is doing in our midst. It is with joy that I tell you of God’s new call for me. Mid-February, I will begin a solo pastor call serving Meadow Springs Presbyterian Church in Richland, WA. My last Sunday with Brunswick Church will be January 14th, and shortly thereafter my family and I will be “westward bound.”
Meadow Springs is a relatively “young” church, having been founded in the 1980s. It is situated in a growing community and with much potential for ministry among and connection to their neighbors. They are a church eager for deepening their faith, doing cross-generational ministry, and ultimately understanding God’s call for them. I am eager to set my hand to serving them as pastor and seeing “what God will do” through us together.
I have so much gratitude for this presbytery, as I have served alongside you and known your gifts first hand, as I have received greatly from you in support and affirmation over the years. You have truly been colleagues in ministry and I thank God for you!
I know God will have our paths cross again in wonderful ways. Until then, God be with you until we meet again.
