Change Is Bittersweet.

August 14th 2007 (2) comments so far  

As many of you know, I am resigning my position as Pastor of Discipleship and Adult Fellowships effective this Wednesday, August 15, 2007. I have accepted a position of Minister to Young Adults at First Baptist Church of McKinney, Texas. Lori and I are confident and excited about God’s leading and are looking forward to this next adventure.

But how quickly six years has gone! I am so thankful for the work of Stonebriar Community Church. Through our time as members and on staff, our love and devotion for Christ has deepened greatly. Through our interaction with many of you we have developed ministry skills and resources that will be treasured for a lifetime. Stonebriar Community Church has been a tremendous place of development for me and my family and I am forever grateful for this time of service with you.

Working with Adult Fellowships has been a joy. I am so thankful for the leadership in each of the Adult Fellowships. Exciting days are ahead for this vital ministry. I look forward to seeing how God continues to use the Adult Fellowships to embrace and equip people who will impact Frisco and the surrounding community for Christ.

Thank you for allowing us to join with you in our journey of faith!

    John,

    You are going to be deeply missed!! Thank you so much for reaching out to me at the Coffee House. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy your friendship. I’m excited to see what God has in store for you at McKinney First. I know God will do great things though you!! I’m looking forward to catching up soon and getting going with Indian Princess. See you soon! Mike

    Bittersweet says it all. You’ve made an impact… and will make more. It has been fun to watch from afar.
