A little over 5 months ago now our family moved back to Savannah to pursue planting a church. Part of that plan involved becoming a part of Ferguson Avenue Baptist Church. In the last 5 months I have had opportunity to preach and teach in a variety of settings ranging from the pulpit on Sunday morning to a Saturday men’s prayer breakfast.
As of last night I have agreed to serve Ferguson as their interim youth pastor over the next few months. I’ve been a youth pastor for most of my adult life. Teaching teenagers about Jesus Christ is something I love to do. Now I get to do it on a weekly basis here in Savannah. I’m excited. I got to meet with them last Wednesday night. So far they seem like a great group of kids. We’re going to be going through the book of James together.
If you’ve been following along and praying for our vision for church planting please don’t think that this represents a step away from that. I have prayed that God would allow me to serve Him in Savannah, GA and as far as I am concerned everything is still moving forward. In the meantime, I get to do what I love to do.
