A New Chapter - Steven Joins Northpoint Ministries

Buckhead Church
Buckhead, GA
Many of you know our journey to Georgia was a real step out for us.  We had great jobs in California, our family and close friends all still reside there and there wasn't really a "reason" per se, to move.  If you want the long version, feel free to ask me or Steven.  We'd love to share it, because for us it was truly a moment of excitement coupled with the realization of "holy crap, we're moving across the US with nothing" moment.

It's been quite a year for us since we last made the decision to move back in late January 2010. Steven and I have been working & slowly building our community, but I won't say it's been an easy go.  People are inclusive and obliging, but you know how it is to step into a new situation and be the "new"people.

Luckily, we did have friends that campaigned diligently for us as we got here so that Steven could get his foot in the door work-wise and that we could pay our bills.  That was priceless and does not go unnoticed or unappreciated.  Meanwhile, back in CA we had similar emotional support and that carried us through some tougher patches.

I have been working from home and taking on clients left and right planning events and doing project management virtually.  It's been amazing to see how God has provided all at "random" times! :) Wouldn't ya know! To start a job with a new company and also my own side business in 10 months is beyond words to me.  I worked hard, but fully acknowledge favor was beyond my own capabilities of making something happen.  Again, why do I get nervous about trusting?

Nine months later, here we are.  A baby, weeks away from being due, another move (across town this time) and Steven stepping into a new role at Buckhead Church as their Music Director.  Being off the road after 10+ years of touring is a new adventure for both of us, but one I think we'll both appreciate, especially with the baby on the way.

Pastor Andy Stanley started Northpoint Ministries about 15 years ago and they have 4 campuses (soon to be more) and Steven will be working down in the heart of Buckhead about 10 minutes north of the City of Atlanta.

So, we say, we appreciate you! If you've prayed for us, thank you! If you've supported us with your kind words, care packages and late night phone calls, we couldn't have done it without you.  If you're in the area, please join us....you might have to sleep on an air mattress, but there's always a place for you.

Looking forward to a more settled "excitement" in life as we journey into the next chapter.
