Just wanted to share
« on: February 21, 2008, 01:03:02 AM »
Well, it's been a year since I first began serving as Minister and Pastor at Christway. At my request we served as interim pastor for the first year, giving the church and myself time to pray and more carefully weigh any decision for permanent placement.

I am happy, and humbled, to report that as of tonight I have been chosen, we believe in accord with the will of God, to be the Permanent (Lead) Pastor for Christway Church. I had a clause added so that every 5 years we can revisit the idea and together seek for further direction at that time, as to whether or not I should continue in that role.

Thank you Lord, for the calling you counted me worthy to fulfill, and for such a wonderful congregation to serve in and with. Amen.
