“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”
– Semisonic, “Closing Time”
Times of transition are always bittersweet. In order for the new to come alive, the old must pass away. Excitement is mixed with grieving.
Today, as Lindsay and I face a time of transition, such is the case. I’m extremely excited to announce that I have accepted a new ministry position as the interim youth minister at University Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas. I will have the privilege of serving the church in this capacity until August of this year. It’s a great opportunity for me, and I can’t wait to begin. It is also difficult, however, to sever ties with Rosen Heights Baptist Church in Fort Worth, a community of believers I have grown to love over the past two and a half years. My time there has been sweet, and I hate to see it come to an end so quickly. I hope that I can stay in touch with so many there who have meant so much to me.
Lindsay and I will be looking for a new place to live over the next couple of weeks and I’ll begin my ministry at UBC sometime around February 1. Please keep us in your prayers as we make this transition. I’m very excited to see what God will do in this next chapter of our lives!
