We are going to be transitioning out of ministry at West Cannon Baptist Church in Grand Rapids.
We are still working through what some of the next steps are for us.
Here are some things we know and some things we would appreciate your prayers for. Obviously this planning is in light of James 4:13-17.
The kids and Krista are continuing at Northpointe Christian School. The NPC administration, staff and families have been great. Krista will begin her second year as a paraprofessional at the elementary school. Joel is going into 10th grade. Josiah is going into 7th grade. Jadyn is going into 3rd grade. Pray for the start of the new school.
As it relates to housing, we are not sure the length of time we have at our current rental. Once again, we know we have been extremely blessed by God through the Shelners. When needed, we are going to begin looking for a rental. Even now we are keeping our eyes and ears open to possiblities. Pray for wisdom.David’s work
My last day of work at West Cannon Baptist Church is August 24th. I have two months of severance pay. During that time I am going to begin look for work in the Grand Rapids area. If you know of any possibilities let me know. At this time, I am not going to be looking for a pastoral ministry but hope to in the future. Pray for wisdom.Church
August 26th is my last Sunday at WCBC as part of the staff. Some people have asked if we will continue attending West Cannon. While we love the people at WCBC and love its commitment to Biblical truth, for now we have decided it would be best not to attend. There are many other good churches and we are looking forward to visiting some of them. Pray for opportunities to be blessed and be blessing to others.It has been a crazy year and a half. It definitely has not gone the way I would have planned but thank God I am not God.
We appreciate your prayers. Pray that we would continue to grow in our faith in God.
One of the first verses I highlight when I get a new Bible is the same verse I have written out in many of my journals and the same verse that has been on the side panel of this blog almost since the beginning is Acts 20:24, which is very relevant right now.
