Moving to Deland - A note to the members of Canopy Roads Baptist Church

Hello Canopy Roads Family,

I have some bittersweet news to share with you about what God is doing in my life and my family’s life. The last couple of weeks we have been praying about and seeking God’s will in regards to God calling us to serve at Stetson Baptist Church in Deland, FL. This weekend we visited and we have complete confidence that God has opened the door for us to relocate and begin serving Him there. I wish I could individually tell you all about the tremendous impact you have made not just in my life but my whole family. Your love and support have been invaluable. I could not be any happier with how God has allowed us to partner together to grow His kingdom in NE Tallahassee. This transition was not born out of any conflict or division within the church but has come as a direct result of God’s direction. The leadership of the church has been so supportive. Matt and his family have been such a blessing to us. Matt is an incredibly gifted pastor and a such a close friend and mentor.

January 29th will be the last Sunday I will be on staff at Canopy Roads. God willing, we will move our family to Deland that same week. Thank you again for allowing me to serve alongside you. God’s fingerprints have been all over Canopy Roads since I started in 2008 and I have complete confidence that God will continue to use you and the leadership to develop fully devoted followers of Christ in the years to come.  God bless and thank you!
