It’s been two years, but those two years have really flown by, haven’t they? It seems like only yesterday they were introducing you as the new Kairos Pastor. Now you’ve accepted a new calling and chapter in your life in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
I’m grateful for those two years. I’ve learned so much from you and seen your heart for Kairos from day one. It’s always been about Jesus first and foremost with you.
I’m thankful that I have lots of good memories to keep in the months and years to come. Those Kairos 4th of July celebrations at Crockett Park. Those times we had Kairos at the Factory in Franklin. Those retreats in Willow Pond.
I think you helped to birth in us a vision for reaching the city of Nashville and a heart for college students and young professionals. I love that your last words to us were for us to carry out the Great Commission.
It’s true that none of us are junior varsity when it comes to proclaiming the gospel and sharing our faith. In this game, none of us are supposed to be spectators. We’re the ones Jesus called to go into all the world and make disciples — not just the ones who get paid to preach and teach.
I hope to visit your new digs in South Carolina. I hope you will get to come back once in a while to visit as Kairos enters a new chapter in a story God continues to write on our hearts and lives.
We thank you and your family for your faithfulness to God’s calling on your lives and your willingness to obey, no matter what. We will miss you but we also rejoice and give thanks to God for you all from now until Jesus returns.
