Family Update - The Winds of Change are Blowing

For the last five years, our family had the privilege of being a part of Northside Church in Texarkana.  I served as the Student Ministries Director.  We were blessed to be able to serve with great friends and lead incredible students.  This last Sunday, July 6th, we were elected to serve as the new Pastors of First Assembly of God in Sulphur Springs, TX. 

As with any transition, there are a lot of conflicting emotions.  We are extremely excited God has led us to lead a great group of people in Sulphur Springs. We know God has great things in store for His church. I am honored to be a part of His plan for Sulphur Springs. We can't wait to build new friendships and pastor the congregation God has called us to. We love Sulphur Springs! 

On the flip side, we are sad to leave family and friends.  Last night, we announced our resignation to the Oneighty students at Northside.  They will always have a special place in our hearts.  Northside is not another stop, but it is home.  It is the church I grew up in as a kid.  We loved serving with Pastor Jimmy and Renata. They are more than pastors and mentors. They are friends.  I could spend time naming many names, but I know I would forget someone.  I do want to thank Northside for loving our family. You do not know the impact you have made on our lives.  Our last service at Northside is July 27th. 

Another piece of this is Atlanta ISD. Sasha was blessed to work for this great district for seven years.  My girls have attended school there.  Thank you Mrs. Whatley for loving and mentoring my wife.  Thank you to all the teachers, principals, coaches, etc. who have loved and taught our children.  We will miss you all very much. 

We love you Oneighty, Northside and Atlanta ISD! 

"We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us. The night is coming, and then no one can work." (John 9:4 NLT)  We know God has called us to this task. We covet your prayers as we move, sell our home, Sasha finds a new job and we start our new ministry assignment.  We can't wait to see what He is going to do through us.
