New Families Pastor Joining Grace
Dear Grace family:
As you may have noticed, we are in a wonderful season of steady growth, and it has been especially pronounced in our nurseries and children’s ministries. The number of young families seems to increase weekly—and they represent our church’s future!
In light of this growth, the leadership is happy to announce the addition of a new (old) staff member. We have created the position of Young Families Pastor who will work to ensure that we are adequately providing opportunities for spiritual growth. This will include coordinating our children’s and student ministries, as well.
Although the position is new, we are pleased to reintroduce an old friend who will be rejoining us to build this ministry, Lucas Rogers. Lucas was a valuable part of our staff for several years before he joined Paul Anderson in his ministry in Pennsylvania. Lucas and Carrie have loved serving the church there, but they have felt God’s leading to come “home” to Grace and we are pleased to have them return.
Kevin Goldsmith will continue building our ministry to young adults, especially those who are single or just married, in addition to building our outreach ministries. We believe that God is blessing our church with an incredible team.
Depending on the sale of their home, Lucas and Carrie will arrive in Dallas no later than January 1. Please join me in praying for God’s special blessing on them in this time of transition, and pray for Paul and Jenny Anderson as God continues to build their work in Pennsylvania.
God is at work. My prayer is that we will boldly serve Him.
