WELCOME 2014

Welcome-2014

Happy New Year everyone! I am excited to be writing my first post for 2014.

After nearly 3 weeks of holidays, I’m feeling totally refreshed and as prepared as I can be for what promises to be a HUGE year of ministry.

This will be my 7th year as Creative Minister at St Paul’s. I still remember that phone call (from John Gray) back in October 2007 like it was yesterday. The awesome news being that I was the successful applicant for the position. WOO-HOO!

Looking back over the last 6 years at St Paul’s, there have been many highlights. God has been faithful (which comes as no surprise) and I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of building His church.

They say people start to get bored of their job after about 5 years. Well, that’s definitely not the case here. My passion and enthusiasm for the task ahead has not diminished. If anything, I am more enthusiastic now than ever about our CORE VALUES and purpose:

“to create fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ”

St Paul’s is a great church!

In my time here so far, there has been approximately:

* 312 Sundays

* 1250 Services

* 5000 Songs

(God knows how many Services have been held since the church was established over 150 years ago!)

Praise God for all the volunteers who serve week in and week out. Without them, the church would be an empty, life-less brick building.

“May the Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”

Numbers 6:24-26
