On the Move!
If you are an EBC regular you will have heard by now that Ruth, Emily, Jessica and I will be moving later on in the summer to Andover where I am going to be taking up the role of Senior Minister of Andover Baptist Church.
It has been an incredibly tough decision for us to make but we are sure it is where God is leading us as a family. We have been and continue to be so happy to be a part of the EBC church family and the thought of leaving is one that fills us with sadness. We have had an amazing 18 years at EBC and have so many great friends and it has been a huge priviledge to serve in the church here.
I hadn't been looking for a new job, but following some conversations with various people at Andover we felt it was something we should pursue. After lots of prayer and discussions last week the members of the church in Andover voted to call me to serve as their new Senior Minister and we accepted.
We won't be moving until Emily has finished her GCSEs so will probably be late June/early July and in the meantime it is very much business as usual at EBC. The Elders and Leaders will be talking about what comes next for the Senior Minister role at EBC and will keep everyone informed. In the meantime we have to trust God that he has just the right plans in mind and pray that he shows the way forward.
If you have any questions or concerns please do let me know or chat to one of the Elders.
