Ministry is not a 9 to 5 job. It is a lifestyle. I cannot “clock out” and stop being a pastor. It is who I am and what God has called me to do. A big part of my ministry revolves around leadership and relationships. And my number 1 ministry is to my family. Tuesday was a full day of ministry.
Here are a few snapshots:
My parents and nephew left at 8:50AM. They were in town for a few days and were able to take Joelan to day 2 of his tennis tourney in Athens on Sunday.
At 9:30AM we had our Graystone Staff Meeting in which we celebrated and evaluated a fruitful season of ministry. Afterwards, many of us ate lunch together for a time of team building and fellowship.
At 3:00PM Julia’s 13th birthday party began. I drove 17 girls in the Graystone minibus to the Laplume’s for a private pool party. Thank you Russ and Connie!
Jessie just turned 4 but she thinks she’s as old as the teenage girls. If there’s a pool party, she in.
At 8:00PM as the girls left the birthday party, the college students arrived in droves. We had our largest crowd yet and the last “kid” left around 10:30PM after committing his life to Jesus Christ! God is good.
We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.” 1 Thessalonians 2:8
