We were blessed by our churches with a reception on Sunday evening in honor of my Ordination. We were blessed with wonderful gifts and great friends and fellowship, we consider ourselves very blessed.
The Call to Ordained Ministry has been much more involved than I ever imagined it to be and I have said to many that if God hasn’t called a person they would surly quit before completing the process. I started the initial work in 2006 with Seminary and was licensed as a Local Pastor. There have been thousands of pages written and read on theological matters and I don’t regret one of them.
I have known for several years that God was calling me to pastoral ministry but I never really imagined He would bless me with the education that I have obtained and the training I have received. I am grateful for the process that has taken so long, it has been worth it and I know that someday we will see the value in every detail.
Thank you to First Hillsville UMC – Out of the Box Worship Center and Out of the Box Youth.
