I know I have had several personal posts, but I’ve had quite a bit I’ve wanted to share.  I am working on another Twenty Items of Interest post and will get back to the Against Abortion series. 

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.

  1. I don’t think this opportunity will become your new hat,mabye the suit to go with the hat. Working with up and coming Christians/juveniles definitely is tops in my book.
