I'm a Senior Pastor Now!!

Corsicana Country meets Culture

I can't believe it either. Who'd have thought that I would have become a Senior Pastor? I got a call a while back from the first church to give me a full-time job, asking if I'd consider becoming the Senior Pastor. I worked there for 4 years as the Youth/Worship Pastor, and loved every minute of it. It was the perfect place for me, and it gave me confidence in my calling. Words can't express how happy I am to return to Grace Community Church in Corsicana, TX (Check out the sweet football facilities for Corsicana High School!!). Thanks for giving me another chance!!

It's bitter sweet to leave Irving Bible Church, which is the best thing I've ever had the chance to be a part of. IBC is unique and wonderful, and it's tough to say goodbye. Ultimately, though, IBC prepared me for this chance to take what I've learned and use it to impact my new community. I'll always be an IBC'er!!

Pray for me in my new role. I'll keep you posted on how it's going. If I don't blog for a while, it's because I'm kind of busy these days. Just keep checking in and I'll get around to it soon enough!!

Congrats, Steve! What a blessing to be given this opportunity and to take your family to a church where you already have friends who love you guys! We will miss all of you, but wish you great things as you go. Tell Kim to give me a call before you move if I don't run into you at IBC.

Take care,
Janet and Ron

Dude. I hope you put "kick-a** pastor" on your resume because that's what the good people of Corsicana are getting. Keep in touch man.
