I’ve accepted a call to Valley View Church in Louisville as their Pastor of Worship and Creative Arts.
Valley View has a rich history of reaching thousands for the Kingdom. They average 2400 in their weekend services. It’s an exciting fellowship with a huge vision. Joel Carwile, senior pastor of Valley View, first contacted me in February, asking if I’d be interested.
My family and I are saddened to be leaving The Station Church in Birmingham, which we helped plant six years ago. Pastor Randy Norris is one of my closest friends. I sense God has kept us there long enough to help form a strong worship ministry and to disciple the worship and production teams so they can carry on well after we leave. Our goal has been to “finish well” at The Station. Now we look forward to a new Kingdom adventure in a new city and church!
You may be wondering, “So how will this move affect your writing and Next Level Worship?” We believe it will only enhance the mission and ministry of Next Level Worship in the months and years ahead! Pastor Joel and the elders at Valley View understand and support my calling to write and teach. I will still be available to travel and speak in conferences and churches. My wife, Sonia, will oversee the day-to-day operations of Next Level Worship. Our volunteers and support staff will continue to work with us to fulfill the vision God has given us for Next Level Worship and our discipleship resources.
We would greatly appreciate your prayers as we make this huge transition in the coming weeks. (We start at Valley View June 2.)
Blessings on you and on your family and ministries!
