Living as Nomads: Transition Updates

On May 26, we packed up our belongings into a UHaul and headed west to Denver. We stayed in Denver for a week as I had interviews with a couple churches. Since then we have all been down in Roswell, New Mexico spending time with Hillary’s family. It’s been a great time of relaxing and eating awesome New Mexican food.

Last night we received a call from Mountair Church that I am the candidate for their Associate Pastor position. On Sunday, June 24 our family will attend church and spend time with the community there. Then on June 26 their church board will make their final decision. The role will include numerous different responsibilities but will focus on building missional communities and family ministry. The pastor, Trevor Lee, is a friend from Denver Seminary and has been at the church for a few years now. He and his wife Michelle have two kids very close to the ages of our girls. We are excited for the possibility of a great partnership with them. The end to our nomadic life is coming to an end!

Sunday we will be heading back up to Denver to look for rental homes in the Edgewater area just west of downtown Denver. We will be staying with some friends for the next week or so until we find a place.

If you think about it, you can pray for just the right place for us to live. Our hope is to find a place where we can grow a missional community in our neighborhood and connect people with a relationship with the Lord.
