Earlier this week I accepted the ministry position as Executive Pastor at RiverTree Church in Huntsville, Alabama. Soon after that I submitted my resignation to ClearView Baptist Church where I have served for almost seventeen years. Not only I am moving to a different ministry location but I am also transitioning to a new area of ministry. For the last 34 years I have served as a Minister of Music/Worship Pastor in the local church.
Although this may seem as a major change, I believe it is what God has been preparing me for.
Throughout my career as a Worship Pastor I have had the opportunity to lead many other ministry areas from managing an office staff to coordinating three building projects and everything in between.
I am a strong believer in the fact that God allows you to experience things where you are now for what He wants you to do in the future.
God has been preparing me for the new ministry role.
God has opened the door for this new ministry.
RiverTree Church was looking for someone with years of ministry experience who had had the opportunity to lead various ministries, projects and groups of people.
I am excited that RiverTree and I have connected.
I am also sad that my family and I are leaving ClearView. It is a place we have served for over half of our married life and a place where we have raised our children…it is home.
Below is a letter that was sent to ClearView informing them of our decision to make this ministry transition.
How long have you lived in one city then made a move?
How do you think that God prepares you for change?
