Well, here's some big news that is being announced today.....I've accepted a worship leading position with Restoration Church, a united methodist church plant launching in Reston, VA!!!!! I led for a couple of the preview services this fall and I'm really excited for what God is doing through this new community.Today is the third and final preview service, in our "permanent" worshipping location of Forest Edge Elementary School..... we are planning a Christmas concert at the Reston Town Center for December 20th and then we launch weekly services the first week of January!
As I've been sharing the news with friends, the first question I get asked is, "how far is that from your family?" :o) Reston is a little over two hours from Colonial Beach, more if there is heavy traffic....which is almost always. So Mitch and I will be moving from the Shed early next year and making our home back outside of Washington D.C. Until then, I'll be doing a bit of guest room/couch surfing and getting to know a new area of Northern Virginia. I love that church planting is all about meeting people and making friends....sounds perfect! I also am excited to be working alongside Tim Ward.....a great pastor with a heart for reaching people.
You can learn more about Restoration Church here. And to my friends who live outside of Virginia.... the D.C. metro line has just extended the silver line out to Reston, and Dulles Airport is super close. I promise to buy a comfy couch so you can come visit in style!!!
