This spring has been full of transition. The last semester of my Master of Divinity kept me occupied with many things. Taking care of denominational tasks, finishing my last classes, writing my Thesis and attending to family meant a busy spring.
But now that it is all said and done, Meredith and I are excited about transitioning to Monroe, Louisiana. I will be serving at St. Paul's United Methodist Church as the Associate Pastor. I will primarily be working with their contemporary service as well as overseeing their student ministry.
St. Paul's is a great congregation with a history in the community and a flourishing ministry in Monroe. I lived the next town over in college and am familiar with the area. I can't imagine a better situation to be going into as I head back into full time vocational ministry.
I head to annual conference next week and we move directly after that. My Louisiana bones are aching to be back at home. Moving this distance is always interesting, but these last few days in Wilmore will be bittersweet. Meredith and I have made quite a life here. We often joke that we became adults in Kentucky.
So this means the blog might shift a bit. I don't exactly know where that direction will go, but I am excited about another season of life and the holy task of pastoring the people of God.
