Dear Friends,

I’m so glad to be sharing details with you about the pastoral transition that has begun. If you missed the live announcement that was made on January 9, I hope you’ll take some time to watch the videos here and get caught up.

We are in motion with transitioning the Lead Pastor role from me to Ryan Pfeiffer. This transition will be complete in September 2022 at which time I will move into a new role as Associate Pastor.

I encourage you to watch the following two videos in order. They will outline the process of transition, help answer many of your questions, and keep us united along the journey.

I’m so excited about all that God is doing,
