Quick Update: New Missouri Church Home + Upcoming Teaching Appointments

Regular readers might have noticed posts to this site have been sporadic over the past couple of months. I’ve been quite busy finishing up this semester’s research projects along with preparing for the big move and haven’t had time to write new content. Today, I knock the dust off of the blog with few bits of news I’m excited to share.

First, I’m happy to report the move is mostly done and the family and I are now Missouri residents. Last Saturday the moving truck was loaded and we made the 40-hour trip across the country over the span of four days. We have greatly been looking forward to this new chapter of life and anticipate God doing spectacular things in the coming years.

The Next Chapter

OUR MOVE

A wise man once said, “Change is inevitable … except from a payphone.” There is some truth to that statement as it pertains to life, and a big change is coming for my family soon.

In a couple of months, we will no longer be residents of the west coast.

We announced a few weeks ago to the Lake Merced Church of Christ we would be resigning our positions in June and leaving San Francisco.

The past few years in this city have been a rich learning experience. God blessed us to accomplish many of the goals we set out to accomplish and to touch many lives, but ultimately we do not feel He is leading us to be here long-term.
