A New Season of Ministry
Transitions are bittersweet – this one is no exception. I’m overjoyed to announce that Erin and I have accepted the call to First Baptist Church Murray, KY. I was saddened to announce today my resignation at Sarasota Baptist Church. I will miss the Ranchers in Sarasota, but I can’t wait to be on the field in Murray. I could not have asked for finer ministry partners at the Lakewood Ranch campus – I do not know of a more unified congregation.
I leave one great congregation for another – FBC is a body with an incredible heart for missions. They birthed the idea of the cooperative program (how my denomination funds mission work). They were one of the first to do Amazon River missions. The heartbeat of missions that began in 1847 remains strong today. In short, I can’t wait to join the people in Murray who have joined God in His work.
… for we are unable to stop speaking about what we have seen and heard. Acts 4:20
I’ll be the pastor of a new church, but the mission remains the same. I leave one church knowing that they will never stop living gospel-centered lives. I join another church knowing they have the same heart.
