We are very excited to announce something with all of you! Please watch the video here on this post!
To say the least, this has been a long season. Joelle and I have been seeking out The Lord and His plans for us after sensing something was stirring within us that was different. We couldn’t quite put our finger on it so we just decided to take a long season of praying and reading the Bible, believing the Holy Spirit will speak clearly to us to reveal what was going on.
Not only did God reveal answers, but such specific answers to both of us when we didn’t even talk about it. After all of this time we decided that this could only be God clearly giving us direction and that’s how we landed at the decision to move to Austin to help plant and build Austin Life Church.
I’ll be joining the staff as one of the pastors at Austin Life and our family will be teaming up with Apartment Life at an apartment community in the central Austin area soon to help minister to and love our neighbors, learn more about the city, and invite people into a relationship with Christ and into the Church.
It’s been an exciting and terrifying season all at the same time which we believe is exactly where God wants us. He wants us completely dependent on Him and honestly, that is just normal behavior for the follower of Jesus. While this is a transition, it’s no different than any other day of following Jesus where His power is made perfect in our weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)
Would you please consider doing 2 things for us?
Would You Consider Praying For Us?
Please pray for wisdom, pray for guidance, pray that all the funds are raised for Austin Life Church, pray for us to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus through all of this and to not be distracted on the cares of this world or the unknowns ahead for us. We’ve never been in this position before and while we are excited for what’s ahead, we know prayer is the work and we need Jesus every step of the way.
Would You Consider Financially Supporting Austin Life Church?
We would love to talk to you more on what this looks like, and share the mission and strategy of ALC. Most importantly, we would just love to share what God is already doing in Austin. People are already showing up in community, people are expressing interest to follow Jesus, to get baptized, to join the Church, to start serving, etc. It’s amazing with everything that’s happening and things are just now barely getting started! You can actually view more information on this and even give online at AustinLifeChurch.com.
We know for a fact God is doing amazing things in Austin and we are honored that we get to play a role in His mission going forward to lead people to life in Jesus. This is our next step.
