As of today's notification, I am free to speak out loud where my next appointment will be. I doubt this will come as a suprise to anyone, but having now been given permission, here we go.
At the end of this Annual Conference, I'll be moving from Saint John's to become the Senior Pastor at Covenant United Methodist Church, in Cordova.
I'll post more soon on what all that may mean to me, to the Church. And I have quite a bit to process about 8 years at Saint John's...but that will come in due course.
Just being able to say outloud, and not play games anymore, is a good thing.
I begin ministry at Covenant with a wonderful partner in ministry at my side - Lora Jean Gowan. I could not be more thrilled about that and feel that together we can facilitate great things wherever we're called to serve.
OK, there it is. I said it. Been living with this propsect since the first week of February, and the reality of it since the first week of March.
