This week, Pastor Art is on vacation. Pastor Brandon shares his thoughts with us....
It is great to be with you all this weekend. As many of you know, come October, I will be transitioning into the role of Lead Pastor here at LCC; a role that requires filling some big shoes. With that in mind, I thought this would be a great chance to share with you how the transition is going by highlighting three groups of people that God is using to make this transition successful.
I am first extremely thankful for all your prayers and care for both my family and the Hunt family. Very few days go by where I don’t receive an email, note, or hug from one of you telling me how much you are praying for us all. Your prayers are being felt, and have been a huge encouragement to us. I know that Art and I truly feel God’s hand shaping this transition, thanks to you.
Secondly, I am thankful for our Leadership Team that oversees LCC. For nine months now, this group of men and women have stood by Art and me through every moment of this transitional process. Their love and diligence toward God and this congregation have shown brightly through their wisdom, discernment, and desire to surrender this transition completely to God.
Finally, Jennifer and I are incredibly thankful for Art and Naomi. I am humbled to be by Art’s side, watching and learning about every facet of leading this church. I am constantly overwhelmed by exactly how much Art does for this church by God’s grace. He and Naomi are championing what it means to follow God’s leadership as they graciously handoff all they know to myself and Jennifer, and for that, we are eternally grateful.
Lighthouse Family, I hope this is an encouragement to hear, thank you for all your support and love! We hope you enjoy the weekend with us!
