Transition :: A Letter From Us

Dear Friends and New Life Church Family, 
As many of you may know, Pastor Brady and I have been talking and praying about a transition in the Worship Department of New Life Church for several months.  The process and journey have been challenging at times, but we know that the Lord has been with us in the process and that He continues to remain faithful.  While the entire picture wasn’t clear at the beginning, we knew that a transition was coming and that Jon Egan and I would be changing roles.  As we have moved closer to the time of this transition, we know the Lord has spoken and given direction to the things that we’ve been praying about, for which we are very grateful. 
I wanted to let you know that in the Lord’s speaking and giving clarity, my family and I will be moving to West Palm Beach, FL to step into the role of Worship Pastors at Christ Fellowship.  It is a wonderful congregation founded by friends Pastors Tom and Donna Mullins and led by their son and daughter-in-law, Lead Pastors Todd and Julie Mullins.  I’ve known the Mullins for about 20 years now and we are excited to join them and the Christ Fellowship family. 
The timeline for this transition is August 1.  Jon Egan will step into the role of Executive Worship Pastor at New Life Church and I will step into my new role as Worship Pastor at Christ Fellowship.  With that timeline quickly approaching, our last Sunday at New Life Church will be July 14.  We are, of course, very sad to leave our New Life family after serving for so many years, but we look forward to the good plans God has for us, and New Life Church.  It has been our joy to serve and we thank God for all of you that we have enjoyed relationship with over the last almost 17 years.  We will always be family. 
The kids are doing well and are excited about our upcoming move, but every once in a while have some concerns about new friends and new schools, etc., which is understandable.  We know that the Lord will take care of them and we appreciate your prayers for them especially as we make this transition. 
We know we won’t be able to say goodbye to everyone personally, but wanted you to know our timeline so that we might be able to catch many of you at church on our last Sunday. 
We love you all.

  2. Blessings to you and your sweet family on the move. We went to your wedding on New Year's Eve 1999, and have watched your family blossom! We are good friends with your folks, Lee and Buddy Gilmore, and know that although they no doubt support you in the move, they will sorely miss you and those grand babies. But God will keep you close to their hearts. God's best to you all!
