I have resigned as the Lead Pastor of Mt. Laurel Evangelical Free Church in South Jersey. After nine years (June 22 will be my last Sunday) I sense that God is leading me into a new season of life. I thank God for all the wonderful memories and moments that I have had with the people of MLEFC! I am praying that God will richly bless them with a new pastor that loves Jesus, and the church, with all of his heart!
My future is uncertain at this point and time, which drives me absolutely crazy. When I know for certain what is next I will let you know…
Over the coming months I plan on doing a little soul searching and writing when it comes to the highs and lows of pastoral ministry. Blogging about things I have learned, what I would do differently, and other insights as I have time to process the past nine years.
The page turns…
Blessings on you, your family, and MLEFC as you all start something new.
Thank you Matt.
This is a loss for your congregation.
The Lord’s anointing is upon you Michael. As you go through this season of change and uncertainly, I pray you will experience the peace, protection, and guidance of The Lord more than ever before. He is faithful, and I’m certain that He will use this time to more fully equip you for what He has planned. I hope you will continue to blog/journal what He is revealing to you as He walks you through these days of change. Who knows? Maybe He will draw you out here to California! Trusting Him with you Michael for all these things. God’s richest blessings to you and your beautiful family, and may He do exceedingly beyond all that you could ask or think, in JESUS.
Thank you for the very kind and thoughtful words Robin. Greatly appreciated…
