I’ve worn numerous hats in my “professional” ministry life… residential counselor, youth director, youth pastor, Dean of Students, Chaplain, Training Specialist, and Director of Ministries & Volunteer Development. I’ve got a new one to try on… pastor.
I’ve just accepted an opportunity to be the interim pastor for Grace Evangelical Free Church in Indianola, IA. This is a new church start. The official church launch is on Easter Sunday – March 23, 2008 at 9:00am. Check out the church’s website for details.
In case you are wondering this is a part-time position (just preaching) so I will remain in my position with Serve Our Youth Network – I am still very much called to working with juvenile offenders. I am excited by this opportunity because I have had numerous opportunities to fill the pulpit in several churches in the area, but I have never been able to do a “series” so this will be fun.
Please pray for me and the church as we kick-off. They will have three “soft” starts before the public launch so pray that goes well too.
