Late August Life Update

So, I have not blogged in ages because life has been insane between working with the middle school at FBC Pelham and working at Student Life.  I started Beeson Divinity School this week so I think that my life and schedule is going to reach some form of stability and rhythm soon.

God has been doing amazing things over the last few months.  He has really been working through the middle school ministry at church.  We are seeing more students getting involved in coming to church than the middle school ministry has seen in a long time.  God led me to do a series this semester on Wednesday nights called Rebel: Following a Jesus Who Did Not Conform.  We have been studying the counter cultural nature of the Christian lives through Jesus’ dialogues with individuals throughout the book of John.  It has been an amazing journey so far, and the students seem to be really impacted by the truth.

Beeson could not have been a more perfect fit for me.  I am loving the classes and people and feel like I am in a place where I can grow and be challenged.  It is going to be neat to see how readings from the early church and the theological debates from church history so easily apply to my ministry at Pelham.  I am growing and learning so much even in the first few days, and I cannot wait to see what God is going to do in the days and weeks to come.  Thanks again for all your prayers and support as I continue along my journey.
