This morning I let Parkcrest know that Allison and I have decided that I will be stepping down from my role at Parkcrest and August 4th will be my last day as Lead Pastor at the church.
Over the years, it has become increasingly apparent to both Allison and I that I’m unable to maintain a healthy soul while serving in the role of Lead Pastor at Parkcrest. So, we had to come to a realization that not only is it not healthy for me to be in this position for the long term, it’s not healthy for the church either.
There’s no moral failing or secret story. This is the simple story.
I share a bit more in this video about what’s next for me as well as some of the next steps for the church. I’d appreciate you taking a few minutes to watch it.
It’s been a privilege and honor to serve at Parkcrest for 19 years, and 11 of those years as the Lead Pastor.
I have a lot of hope and excitement for the next season of Parkcrest and I hope that you’ll join with me in praying for this next season. If you’re a part of Parkcrest, I look forward to seeing you over the next several weeks as I wrap up my time as Lead Pastor and as we anticipate great things ahead together.
For future connection, the best way to get ahold of me will be at this email address – firstname.lastname@example.org
Grace and Peace to you friends
