In 1983 my family packed up the house and made the move from western New York to California. My dad was helping to start the School of Intercultural Studies and World Missions at Biola University. As a kid, I wasn't amused to leave my friends and move to crazy California. It took a while, but I've made the most of living in California for the last 29 years.
In 1987 my wife Patty decided to leave Utah and head to California to attend Biola University. We met there and the rest is history. We were married in 1993 and California has always been our home.
After a few years of feeling that God was telling us it was time to move on, He has finally showed us where. I recently accepted the position of executive pastor at the Lancaster Evangelical Free Church in Lititz, Pennsylvania, and will start towards the end of May in my new role.
We are very excited to be starting this new phase of ministry. The church is a wonderful community of believers that are deeply committed to God and have a real heart for prayer. The senior pastor, Tony Hunt, started in August and the current executive pastor is retiring. When we interviewed we had a great time getting to know everyone, and are really excited to be part of what God is doing at LEFC.
This new role will change the focus of this blog a bit, as I will necessarily not be as deeply involved in the technology side of ministry; however, I do not intend to stop writing.
Exciting times ahead!
