Sunday morning our church announced some transitions that were happening in our pastoral staff.
Our Family Pastor, Mike Hepola is taking on the role of Outreach Pastor, overseeing Global and Local missions. I’m stepping into his role as Family Pastor.
I’m so excited about this change of responsibility for me and can’t wait to see all the things in store for our families, children and students. We are pumped!
Ever since my first Orange Conference 7 years ago, God has put a burden for families in my heart. I believe parents are the primary spiritual influencers and I believe the church is meant to partner with them as they lead their children. I’ve also been privileged to work in almost every area of ministry. I’ve worked in Elementary, Middle School and High School world. I believe that I have a unique perspective on the alignment of a Family Ministry staff. So I’m just jacked up excited for what God is doing.
So for the next few months I’ll be learning all about the role of Family/Next Gen Pastor and trying to figure out what I need to do in order to be successful. Very excited and can’t wait to get started.
