Starting April 1, 2012 I will be the preaching minister for the University Church of Christ in Conway, AR. Leah and I are very excited about this new path on our journey. We began interviewing in mid-September and were asked to visit the area and do a formal interview in early December. The search team, leadership, and us all felt that this was a great fit. So on January 8 University and Highland both announced that I would be coming to be the preacher at University Church of Christ.
I have been involved in year-round youth ministry since February 1996. That means I have been doing this gig for over 16 years. I have been most recently at Highland Church of Christ in Abilene, TX since 2006. I was born and have lived in Texas all my life. Leah was born and raised in Texas as well. Our two boys were born right here in Abilene. In fact, we brought them home from the hospital to our current house. Needless to say since we are changing careers, city, and state this will be quite a transition.
In the next set of blogs I want to talk through transitions by walking through some of my own experience.
