I'm a Pastor!

I am now the pastor of FBC Mertens, Tx. To be honest, it is not the place where I would have expected God to place Sarah and I, but it is a great church. Mertens is a town with a blinking light and a Coke Machine (literally), but is an incredible community. I am looking forward to serving the people there as we navigate how to live out the Way of Jesus in Mertens, Tx! Pictures will be coming soon of the house.

Changes. That has been the theme for Sarah and I's life the past few months. It has been unbelievable to see how our lives have been changed, even before marriage. In the past few months Sarah graduated undergrad, I was ordained, I did an internship in Arlington, we rented a house together (though we did not live together), Sarah basically lived out of a suitcase this summer, Sarah started grad school, my parents moved, Sarah and I are going to be an Aunt and Uncle, Sarah and I are most likely going to move to Mertens, Tx, and we got married two weeks ago today! I'm looking forward to seeing how God is going to work through this time of changes. What I have noticed is that I have longed for the times of silence with God through this. With that in mind, I leave with with a few pictures from the wedding.
