Don and I announced today, to the leaders of our church, that we are stepping down as youth directors, effective June 1st. It's actually a little more than that. We are resigning from youth ministry all together. We don't want anyone to think that we're dissatisfied at our current church and would be looking to do ministry elsewhere. We are ending our days as official youth workers.
There are several reasons we have made this decision and now. The timing seems right. We have been thinking and praying about this since September and we feel at peace about our decision.
We still have a heart for teens. We still love hanging out with them. We still are willing to walk along side a teen in his or her own personal journey or being there for them in a time of need. We are truly going to miss being a part of a ministry that gives us the opportunity to be a part of a teen's life.
And as much as we are going to miss so much of what doing youth ministry means to us, we are excited to think that God has something new in store for us and that He will reveal that to us when He's ready and He knows we're ready.
