This week I am celebrating alongside you the 3 year anniversary of my ordination at TBC. It is a moment I cherish and that I carry great respect for. It is a huge deal to be affirmed as a minister of the Gospel by a church that truly tries to live out the Gospel of Christ throughout your 125 years.
The Church Family at Tabernacle is an amazing family. A family that Melanie and I miss very much. You were a place that allowed me to explore my calling and try things I didn’t know how to do. When I messed up you extended grace and when I was successful you celebrated beside me. Most importantly you modeled what it means for a church to be a family as I got to participate beside you in welcoming others in, finding ways to incorporate different cultures into worship, and walking beside each other through various seasons of life. You are a model of what the body of Christ looks like.
