If you live in Northern Virginia and converse with us regularly, you already know…
But for everyone else: my husband just got a full-time job!
After returning to the States from Iceland (because of Gracie’s condition) we didn’t know what God had for us on this side of the ocean. We had been back in America for thirteen months, searching, waiting, wondering, praying, and still…only a part-time job. Last month the elders at Pillar Church offered my husband a full-time job as the teaching pastor and he accepted.
Pillar Church is a special place to us because back in 2006 our home church, Stafford Baptist Church, planted it. Back then it was just a handful of people meeting and studying the Bible together, but has now been strengthened and grown, and is no longer in the infancy stage. It’s standing on it’s own two feet. No…not just standing, now that I think about it…but running. Flourishing. Training people. Equipping people. Then sending them out to do the same. It’s a beautiful cycle of disciples who make disciples (who make disciples…who make disciples….) and I absolutely love this church.
We have been studying the book of Acts and the early church on Sunday mornings. The boys have also been offering a Church History course that is the most academic “Sunday School” class I have ever been a part of. We are reading the book “Church History in Plain Language” by Bruce Shelley as well as supplemental original text writings. The lectures have been excellent and I take pages of notes each week.
