Yesterday was a bitter sweet day for me. It was my final Sunday preaching as a senior pastor at the most amazing church I ever been apart of. After speaking there for the past 4 years and after much prayer, God laid it on my heart to take a break so that I can invest time into writing this book. I have been preaching somewhere every Sunday for the past 17 years. It felt so wonderful yesterday to be so missed by this church family and to have them so supportive of my decision.
Resigning from pastoring a church will free up some will needed time. Instead of having to be creative and coming up with a fresh sermon every week, I now can invest that same time into being creative and dig in the Scriptures putting it all on paper to write this book. I will continue to be speaking/performing several times a month around the nation with my non profit, Holy Wow Ministries.
Today begins a new chapter in my life. God wrote my story. It's my job to keep turning the pages. I am excited for this new journey!
