This past weekend was an incredible gift to me and I want to say thank you. Lon, Will, Mike and Nate were so gracious in asking me to be a part of the worship service this past weekend. I really appreciate all that Lon said and I’m even more grateful for your kind response as a community.
I honestly feel like I’m the one who should be saying thank you and not the one who should be thanked. It’s been my privilege to be Frontline’s Teaching Pastor for the last 2.5 years. I’m grateful for all of your encouragement and grace over that time. I’m grateful for the faith and courage you have shown in reaching this city for Jesus. I’m grateful for the ways God has worked in your lives and the changes I’ve seen in so many of you. I’m grateful for the ways you have loved and cared for one another. I’m grateful to serve alongside an incredible team. I’m grateful to call so many of you friends.
As we head into a new chapter as a church, I believe God is going to use all of this for His glory. Yes, I’ll miss being with you every Sunday and Monday night but I’m confident that God isn’t done using each of us for His purposes in this city. I’m hopeful for the future and I’m looking forward to all God is going to do.
But for today, I’m grateful to each of you.
