Below is a copy of the letter I recently sent out to my church family regarding this time of ministry transition.
Dear Crosspointe Family,
My family and I love this church! Crosspointe is an amazing fellowship filled with incredible people. We have never felt so loved, appreciated, encouraged and accepted. It has been so incredible to see how God has moved in our church over the last several years. Honestly, it is nothing short of a miracle.
That’s why this letter is so difficult for me to write. My home church, Second Baptist Church in Warner Robins, GA, has asked me to be their new pastor. As of Sunday, November 13th, I have accepted their invitation. It is with a heavy heart that I announce my resignation from the position of pastor at Crosspointe Baptist Church. My tenure will conclude on the last day of November.
Please believe me when I say that we are not hurt, angry, mad, frustrated or disappointed. On the contrary, we love Crosspointe more than ever and we are eternally grateful to the Lord for the privilege of serving as your pastor. But, we must follow the Lord’s will and direction. If you know me, I hope you know that my deepest desire is to be faithful and obedient to the Lord’s call. Only God could bring me to Crosspointe and only God could move me away.
The future of Crosspointe Baptist Church is incredibly bright. I firmly believe the best days of Crosspointe are ahead. I will pray for you all and humbly ask that you pray for my family and me during this transition. I love each of you dearly and am grateful for the privilege of knowing you and serving with you.
Love in Christ,
