Saying Goodbye…Sending Out

1stLPCCservicefortmilllocation5-3-0.jpg picture by christianbassguyGood-byes are never fun, but in this line of work there is at least one kind of good-bye that is very, very good.  Anytime we see a staff member or intern go and head out into the world of church planting, we feel like it is a huge win!

This Sunday is Nathan McConnaughhay’s last one with us.  He’s been our intern in Student Ministries for the last year and we will definitely miss him.  By the end of June, he’ll be working with a church in North Carolina helping them launch a new campus as their worship guy.

Nathan is super-talented and as genuine as they come.  He’s going to make a huge impact in ministry so I’m thrilled he is investing himself in starting something new.

Here’s the other thing I’m thrilled about…Nathan asked our leadership if we would be his ordaining church as he goes out into ministry.  Our elders went through a process with him and will ordain him Tuesday evening.  A very cool marker for him…and for our church.

If you want to follow Nathan’s journey, he’s keeping posts updated here:  http://natemaclifepointe.wordpress.com/
