my resignation

The last two weeks have been tough… and great… and hard… and tearful… and confusing… and assuring… and loving… and honest… and stinky… and raw… and pure.  I never wanted to say the words I had to say to our church this morning.  I love serving our church, but have found myself in a situation that prevents me from staying on staff as a pastor.  Attached is my resignation letter.  I’m still trying to get my head and emotions around the developments of the last two weeks… make that the last six months.  We will greatly miss those who have become so dear to us… and we will miss seeing the dreams and ambitions we had for this church come about.  But we are simply wanting to follow God.  And that’s our desire for our church as well.  Through it all, I have tried to do nothing other than follow God’s lead.  For that I rejoice and stand in confidence.  Though Kathy and I don’t know what’s to come in the months ahead, we look forward to pursuing Jesus.  It’s quite a ride we’re on.

  1. Oh yes, I thaught of that some time ago. Maybe I will translate it when I’m studying, just to have some practice in learning english.
    But here is my question: Why don’t you translate your blog, so I can read it stressless? 🙂

  2. Hi Ken,respect to you. Its a humble step for the Lord, and also a hurting for sure. I pray to god that he will give you a new vision for the future, that he shows you two the next steps.
    Be blessed!

  3. Thanks guys, one of the great things in this whole scenario is the way Kathy and I are leaning upon God together. In doing that, we’re growing closer to one another. That’s fun actually. That’s worth it all.

  4. in a world where confidence often means knowing what’s ahead, your confidence in God’s leading through this will have an impact to those who only know confidence in and of themselves.
    dependence on God to provide and guide, just as Phillip did, will be yet another story you can tell others of how God was your compass when your journey experienced a bit of fog.
