A Leap of Faith - I Resigned!
I Resigned. I gave my notice this past Monday but announced officially this past Sunday.
My role is changing and feeling it is what God is telling me. Though having no where to go or not knowing the next step is scarey.
I'm taking a break from ministry for now. I've done this for over 13yrs and the past 5yrs have been amazing yet I think God wants what is best for me and the congregation to do this.
It is definitely a change.
So what is in the works?
I'm looking to stay where I am for now. There is a remote possibility of serving in a "pastoring" role of a church near Toronto, Ontario down the road - just not now.
I'm looking into possibly Convention planning, Human Resources or Management.
I also consulted and working with the variety of church ministries out that the help ministers in transition.
So all is good. My role is changing and I'm still in ministry just not overseeing the big age group I was from Nursery through College.
This week I pack up my office and see where I put all that stuff in my home.
On a personal note: I'm living on good terms and God's leading - for my family it is definitely a change for us. If you have a job lead - just email me.
