Church Planting Residency

We have been so overwhelmed by God’s provision for us in our short year here in McKinney. From the people we have met and the relationships we have built, to the provision of new jobs and the growth of our home group Bible study. We talk constantly about where we were when we first moved out here, and now where we are just a short time later. We have been amazed and humbled to see the Lord’s faithful and abundant provision for us.

This summer, we have been walking through an assessment process for a church planting residency with our church. Most of our time with them has been relational in nature, with Mike meeting with various leaders to learn more about the ministry and heart of the church. A few weeks ago, we went through our official interview process, which included online assessments, ministry applications, a behavioral interview, and an assessment meeting. They offered us the residency proposal, and I am really excited to announce that starting in September, Mike and I will begin the Church Planting Residency program at Christ Fellowship in McKinney! It is already official  ;)

We are both very excited about this opportunity, and we are extremely thankful to Christ Fellowship for their support in our church planting journey. This next year will essentially be a “training phase” as we prepare to launch a church. We are still talking with the leadership about details and specifics, but we will be sure to keep you up to date on all that the Lord is doing. This year will be exciting for sure, but it will also be a year of refining. So as always, we covet your prayers as we follow the Lord’s leading in these next steps.
