As of a little over a month ago I officially came on board as the Midwest Regional Director with Verge Ministries, working to help a bunch of awesome ministries reach the tens of thousands of young adults and college students that are scattered across ND, SD, MN, and IA. Both Kelly and I are hugely excited about this new season in our lives and how God is going to use it to grow both us and Verge, a ministry that we’ve been closely connected with for several years now through Threshingfloor and our friendship with Andy and Jenn Abramson.
We’re stepping out as missionaries to our own generation, and I truly believe God has some huge stuff awaiting in the future. Because of our move to operating as missionaries and my step into “vocational” ministry I’ll be transitioning this blog, which has historically been mostly poetry, devotional, and theological content to be more of a ministry journal so that those who are a part of Kelly and I’s support team can track along with us, Verge, and Threshingfloor. For those of you who have been following the blog for awhile, don’t worry too much – I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to resist continuing with the devotional and theological goods.
I’ll be posting at least twice a week, so check back regularly if you want to follow along on our ministry journey of following Jesus wherever he leads. In a day or two I’ll be posting a longer update on the specifics of what’s going on in our lives now and where we’re headed in the next couple months. There’s some big plans for Threshingfloor, some exciting meetings for Verge, and all sorts of craziness that I can’t wait to share!
