This update is full of prayer requests and news! Let’s get started.
I just got back from our summer staff retreat with our entire staff team. One of the key parts I want to underline is: we have not had our entire staff together on a retreat since my apprentice year. Our staff has boomed in size because we are taking on nineteen apprentices this year. Nineteen. It’s exciting to experience a surge of new people and to see our team grow. I had a strange moment during the retreat where I realized some of these apprentices were students when I started back in 2018. Now, I get to partner with them in reaching our campuses this fall. I guess that’s what happens the longer you work at a place.
The Arlington staff will be pioneering the Tarrant County Northeast and Southeast colleges. The big news is that Graham and I will be helping with the Northeast plant. I am taking a class to help meet students! Pray for us as we reach out to these campuses. Pray that God will be present and connect us with the students we need to meet.
Be praying for our apprentices’ transitions as some of them move to new campuses and new towns.
Pray for Graham and I as we navigate being married and working on the same ministry team.
Be praying for the amazing opportunity we have to reach our campuses. It has not washed over us the responsibility we have to be present this year. We were blessed with stability that many ministries did not have during last year with covid. Join us in praying for the students we will meet this August.
I am excited to update you with what all God does during our welcome week and our leadership training.
