what a year

This past weekend marked the year anniversary since Jennifer and I felt God's leading to plant a church in Northern California.  We returned to Birmingham and met with our leadership to seek their guidance and prayers.  Two and half months later we felt the confirmation to make the move.

We began an incredible journey that has taken us over twenty five hundred miles from our families, resigning a church we had been through major change with, walking away from a comfortable salary and really good friends.  Tonight we sit in the midst of a move of God in Northern California.  We have made and are making good friends and have been given the opportunity to invest in the lives of people in Auburn California.  Who would have thought it possible????

God is so good and faithful.  The transition has been relatively smooth and we are most definitely busy ministering.  I am working with/ married to the most beautiful, Spirit filled woman imaginable.  I am humbled and amazed at this new season of our life, but even more expectant at how God will work next.

The events of this past year have happened at warp speed with no sign that they will slow down now.  My friend Larry Espedal messaged me the other day with a great sentiment about our lives...  He said, "Let's spend the rest of our days swinging for the fence"...  Oh man am I ever in Larry.
