If you weren’t in church today, you didn’t hear that I’ve accepted an offer to be an Associate Worship Pastor at LifeMission Church in Olathe, Kansas.
Olathe is a southwest suburb of Kansas City; Abigail and I will begin moving our family there on July 7th. My first day in the office is July 8th.
I’ll be taking point on developing the talent and skills of LifeMission’s campus worship teams in Ottawa and Kansas City while serving as a utility worship leader and musician at all the campuses and assisting the lead worship pastor, Zac Dinsmore, as needed.
Abigail and I made this decision after a season of prayer and counsel that started back in January after the Lord revealed to both us and the leadership at Reslife Church that He had something new in store for us. It was a decision made in complete peace and unity with our pastors, something for which we’re deeply grateful.
LifeMission Church is part of our church organization, LINC, and is led by Clint Sprague, who serves as a board member of LINC. Clint exemplifies a passionate heart for worship and seeking the presence of the Lord everywhere he goes. I’m excited to serve under his leadership.
Zac Dinsmore grew up in ministry at the International House of Prayer, and his first priority is leading the church into the presence of the Lord. We had an opportunity to lead worship with him during our last visit to LifeMission, and it felt like we’d been leading worship together for years.
Obviously, this is a huge transition for our family as Big Rapids is all we’ve ever known. Be in prayer for us as we adjust to this massive life change. Pray that I lead our family through this transition with wisdom and grace. Pray that we feel even more at home in Olathe than we have here in Michigan.
We want to thank everyone at Reslife Church for being our family for the last ten years. You have surrounded us with unparalleled support and love, and graciously allowed us to serve and lead you from stage each week. We will be forever grateful for the mark you have left on our lives.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Grace and peace to you all.
