This is an important season in my life. I officially start at my new church on July 15th. For the past five years I've been serving as an associate pastor at a medium size church (appr.300 in attendance, spread over 3 worship services)in a town that has been pretty much the same size (11,000) for a number of years. In a month, I'll begin serving as the solo pastor of a church with one service of approximately 50-55 people in a town of around 6800 that is booming with growth.
I've been praying and trying to grasp what ministry will be like in this new paradigm. I'm trying to get read up and prayed up for the new opportunities, but its definitely new territory, geographically and leadership wise. Any thoughts?
