During this time of year it is crazy, and things really don’t slow down for any of us until the middle part of January. Because of that…this will be my final blog of the year. I want to tell you “thank you” for taking the time out of your busy schedule and reading this blog through the year. Thank you for the comments (mainly on facebook) that I receive from you, but also the e-mails. I am a blessed man… God has done an incredible work in the life of Trinity this year and I must say that the last 6 months have been some of the most enjoyable I have ever had in my ministry. To see where we have come from to where we are - to watch the wonderful families God has brought us as new additions to our church family (as well as some blessed subtractions we have said good bye to), the strength, the passion for discipleship, the desire for accountability, the understanding of how the gospel impacts our life on the daily basis, the passion for God’s glory, the unity – all of these are evidences of grace that I do not go through a Sunday without seeing! In a few weeks Michele and I will be celebrating our third year at Trinity. When I came I had no idea how difficult it would be, but I also had no idea the prayer, support, encouragement and hunger for the Word that God would cause to spring forth. Thank you for allowing me the trust and honor to walk book by book, verse by verse with you through the Word of God. Thank you for the encouragement and prayers you have given our incredible staff and me throughout this year. Thank you for holding fast through the storms and rejoicing in the victories the Lord has given us. I love you and look forward to many more years of serving our Lord beside you. I love you Trinity family, thank you for the joy of letting me lead you as your Pastor.
