New Career Path!

My blogging has taken a brief hiatus over the last few days while I have been in transition between two jobs. As some of you may have noticed, I pastor a church in the Springs, but right now it is a new plant and I have been pastoring in a bivocational role.

Just this week I have started another job, while keeping the pastoral position, that I have hoped for for many years now. I am spearheading the establishment of a campus ministry in town which offers college-level classes from a Christian worldview. The organization is Dayspring Center for Christian Studies.

I am incredibly excited about this opportunity. My job will be to direct the school/ministry in the Springs and to teach a few of the classes. This kind of thing has been my passion for a very long time. I believe there is a powerful need to help Christian students develop and fill-out their worldview as they exit high school and make their way into college and the rest of their lives. I am more and more convinced all the time that “worldview education” is crucial in our culture and its postmodern morphings.

So I apologize in advance if my blogging is a little erratic while I get used to my new schedule and responsibilities. But I hope that in the short run, my new position will actually enhance ETC.

Sounds great Phil!

Don't worry about the blogging ... take care of the new job and the family first ...

I think the job sounds like a great fit. Discipling the hearts and minds of kids headed to college is so important. Glad God has the right man for the right job at the right time.

Blessings to you.

Phil,

You and I are so similar in many ways. I planted a church five years ago. And now I am hoping to go into a ministry that will also help college students "develop and fill-out their worldview." I, too, am called toward “worldview education."

Check out my recent experience with the Coalition for Christian Outreach's annual Jubilee Conference at my blog.

Everyone-

Thanks for the kind thoughts! This really is an exciting adventure for us and I am really looking forward to this vocational shift in my life. As you may have noticed, I am trying to get back into the swing of blogging again...hopefully it will go well!
