It was almost 8 years ago when God moved my family and I from our comfortable environment in suburban Chicago to Oklahoma. We didn’t have any friends or family here, but we moved anyway. I accepted an invitation to come on staff at an amazing church called LifeChurch.tv. It has been an awesome experience and the best season in my life. The church has expanded to new locations and we have seen thousands of people come to Christ. The church launched YouVersion, the Bible App, and it has impacted millions of people around the world. I’m so excited to see how God will continue to use the ministry of LifeChurch.tv
In the midst of all that God is doing at the church, this post is to let you know that my time as a staff member of the church has come to an end. God is starting a new chapter for me. I will continue to attend and serve at LifeChurch.tv, but my vocation will be something different. As I mentioned before, I am excited to see where God is taking my church, but I am also excited to see where God is taking me.
So what’s next? Over the past few years, I have had a growing passion for photography. I really enjoy helping organizations tell their story through the medium of photography. I have had the privilege to not only do that at LifeChurch.tv, but also for Catalyst and the Willow Creek Association. My plan is to help more organizations tell their story.
My other area of passion is in the church technical arts arena. I’ve had the privilege of being involved in the technical arts for over 20 years.In this next season, I am looking forward to helping churches use technology to advance the Gospel. I’m excited to announce that I will be working with Todd Elliott and his team to put on the First In Last Out (FILO) Conferences. FILO is a conference geared specifically towards church technical artists. So if you serve in the audio, video, or lighting area of your church, I strongly encourage you to attend this one-day event. You will be inspired and encouraged. The first one is in Chicago later this month. Then there is one is Dallas in May. If you’re going to the Chicago conference, signup today. Prices increase next week.
So that’s my big news. I appreciate your prayers as I start the next chapter.
