Today I accepted the position to become the Community Life Pastor of Bible Fellowship Church in Ventura, California. That’s right California!
Ginger and I visited Ventura this past weekend. God stirred our hearts during our visit. Incredible church, people, and vision for others.
The church averages about 1,500 in weekly attendance and is led by an incredibly healthy leadership team. Pastor Daniel Hahn and his wife Lori made a strong impression on us as did the staff and elders.
I had planned to announce this next week but this all moved more quickly than I anticipated. I believe that’s because God has clearly opened this door. When we closed San Angelo Church in July, 2011 I had never even heard of this church. Now, I’ll be joining the team!
Ginger and I could NOT be more excited! Did I mention that Ventura is situated between Malibu and Santa Barbara? This is a picture Ginger took this weekend during our visit.
Time for Lincoln to break out the surf board. 🙂
