Leaving a job you love is hard. Leaving a job you love at a church is harder. 

One the kids said so honestly in my last Bible class this Wednesday night: 

"It's hard to say goodbye because you're used to them."

My soul and spirit have gotten used to the family here at Church Street Church of Christ. I am not happy to leave. It, in fact, terrifies me to do so. But I know that I leave of my own choice, to move on to another position which will allow me to tackle new challenges and spend more precious time with my family. 

I am happy, however, to leave the youth ministry at Church Street in the best place that I know I could. I know the parents, deacons, youth committee and elders will find a great replacement and will continue the long tradition of strong youth work in Lewisburg. 

All this being said, I am very sad to leave. This is my last day in the office here. And I will miss Kyle, Bill, Talitha, Billy, and Hector very much. Working with all of you has been an honor. 

Working with the Elders, Deacons, and Youth Committee has been wonderful. I could not ask for a better support team for the youth program here. 

The congregation as a whole has been very supportive, and they continue to be supportive as we transition out. We are so very thankful for that. 

I do not exaggerate when I say that my family and I have been truly blessed by being here. May the Lord bless you and keep you, and shine his face upon you, and give you peace. 

Go with God, Church Street.
