NEW Pastor of Families @ The Journey Church

Just got a pretty cool email today! This was sent to The Journey Church family in Boca Raton concerning our new position as Pastor of Families. Please be praying for us as we make this transition to Boca Raton. Pray for The Journey and pray for First Baptist Church.

Dear Journey Family,

I am excited to announce that after much prayer and a four-month search, Pastor David Stone will be joining our team as Pastor of Families starting Sunday, April 6.

While our search stretched nationwide, David was actually in our backyard. For the last three years, he has been serving at First Baptist Church, Belle Glade in northwest Palm Beach County. I have personally observed and appreciated David’s ministry over the years and am delighted that he is joining our team.

As Pastor of Families, David will add value by leading and shepherding both existing and new areas of our church. His key focus areas will include:

* insuring that our already fantastic Journey Kidz ministry continues to make Sunday the best hour of your child’s week. As we grow as a church, we want to insure this ministry continues to grow, deepen and shape young lives for Christ.

* starting a new student ministry for both Junior and Senior High Students. Building on our teen growth groups, Pastor David will begin working immediately with parents and students in our church to develop a Godly plan for the launch of an exciting student ministry starting this fall.

* serving alongside our great staff, regular volunteers, members and regular attenders to help our church fulfill our mission of giving the people of South Florida the best opportunity to become fully developing followers of Jesus.

You will love David and his family as soon as you meet them. He is a native of Missouri but has served churches in his home state as well as Texas and Florida. In addition to a Bachelors degree in ministry, he has a Masters of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, TX.

You will have the opportunity on Sunday, April 6 to say hello to David, his wife Jenny and their two boys Taylor (age 12) and Tucker (age 8) and we will hold a special meet-n-greet reception after the service on Palm Sunday, April 13.

These are exciting days for our church!

I’m excited about so many things that God is doing in our church: Pastor David joining our staff; Easter coming up in just over three weeks; and God’s great work that I witness each week in your life and the life of those who call The Journey Church their home!

Please join me in praying for our new Pastor of Families and for our church.

See you Sunday. Know you are loved,

Pastor Nelson

P.S. To help guide your prayer for Pastor David and his family, here’s a link to our Facebook page that contains a picture of his family.

Update on the Stone’s

We are headed to Boca Raton, FL (about an hour east but still in Palm Beach County) to work at The Journey Church. I will be the Pastor of Families and Evangelism. Something was whacky with the last Pressgram/Twitter/Facebook techno-Whizbang thingy. Here is a link with lots of information, followed by a link to the church’s website.
