Dear Members and Friends of Covenant Presbyterian,
“More than we can ask for or imagine!” That’s how the apostle Paul describes what Jesus can do through us as a church in Ephesians 3:20.
It is with deep pleasure and gratitude that I greet you as your new Associate Pastor. My wife Alison and I are delighted to call Huntsville our new home and to call you all our new church family. We can’t wait to meet each of you in person over the coming months and to introduce ourselves (including our four-month-old son George). We truly feel like God has given us “more than we could ask for or imagine.”
Alison and I both graduated from Princeton Seminary in the spring with M.Div. degrees. Although we interviewed at many churches, at the end of our search we very clearly heard the Lord call us to Covenant. We believe that this is one of the most remarkable congregations in the denomination and are convinced that Jesus Christ will use this church in a powerful way for His Kingdom here in Huntsville and beyond. We could not be more excited to begin working alongside you in this mission.
I am settling into my office and already I have been so encouraged by the warmth and energy with which you have greeted me. Please do not hesitate to drop by or to give me a call. Hal and I are planning my ordination service for the fall and we look forward to sharing those details with you so that we can celebrate together as a church family.
My deepest passion is telling people the good news that Jesus Christ is Lord. I enjoyed doing this so much when I was working in the financial services industry that I felt the Lord call me to equip others to do the same. Now, after three years of study at Princeton, it is truly my privilege to share my enthusiasm and training with you. God is calling us to a great adventure together, and I truly believe that it will be for “more than we can ask for or imagine!”
Yours in Christ,
