This seems awkward to make an announcement in this forum, but I’ve started getting some questions and emails from people about things they’ve heard, so let’s get this cat out of the bag. Starting in January, my role at Trinity Church is changing quite a bit. For over 3 years I’ve served as the “Children’s Ministry Pastor.” At my church, and like many other churches this has left me responsible for all church ministry for those between the ages of birth to the 5th grade. In the time I’ve been at Trinity, I’ve been fortunate to be surrounded by some amazingly talented people that have grown, innovated, and created a fantastic ministry to children. We’re far from perfect, but we have come such a long way!
With the development of the KIDMIN team, and a reorginization of our church staffing; I’ve now broadened my responsibilites to accept the position of “Next Generation Ministry Pastor.”
But what does this mean? It means that along with managing the existing Kidmin team at Trinity, I’ll also be leading the Jr. High, Sr. High, and College Ministries. By leading, I mean that I’ll be leading some awesome leaders already doing great things here at Trinity Church. I’ve been tasked with the goal of implementing an Integrated Strategy for preschoolers, children, students, and young adults, and I’ve been given the goal of starting what should be an Orange model of ministry that is unique for Trinity Church.
I’m about 50% excited and 50% scared out of my mind. As far as this blog goes, it will be what it is. The family and children are my heart, and in my new position all that I lead from will come from that heart. I’ll still be teaching children one weekend a month in our large group teaching environments, and look forward to continue to make Trinity Church a place for families in Lubbock, TX.
