For the past 8 months, I’ve been in a dual role as Activities and Student Director at St. James UMC. It’s been quite a task to lead both of these vital positions at the church. And while we’ve enjoyed the extra income for our family, it’s taken away most of my Sundays and even a few weekends.
So starting in the middle of May, I will be transitioning back over to the Activities side of my job exclusively. This decision did not come lightly, but after processing and praying for several months, I knew it was time to give up the Student ministry side of my position to someone who had the desire and passion to pour into the students of the church.
The exciting part is this will allow Rachel and me to have our weekends back, in addition to fewer evenings away from home. Most importantly, I am excited to regain the same two days off each week with Rachel, where we can spend time with family/friends, run, travel, hit up Disney, or just take it easy!
And while I don’t know if this is officially the last time I will serve in Student Ministry after almost 20+ years, I do know this new (old) role is where I’m meant to be right now.
Onward and upward!
