After a couple of months “off,” tomorrow morning, July 6, I will begin as interim music ministry at Level Grove Baptist Church in Cornelia, Georgia. Level Grove is just about fifteen minutes from our new home in North Georgia. This is a strong church with a great Christ-centered music ministry and a long musical heritage.
I have kept my ears open the past month or so, ever since I knew I was going to Level Grove, and this church has a great reputation. I am honored to partner with Pastor Brian James and the Level Grove family we “lift up Jesus” in this great community and as they seek their next full-time minister of music.
My heart is not to “maintain” the ministry during this interim time and it is obvious this is the same heart as the music leadership. Our goal for the months ahead is to grow the ministry, reach out to gifted people, encouraging them to join with us, use their gifts, and sharpen their skills. To seek out people who have a long history of music ministry as well as people who may have never been part of a church choir or orchestra. Our desire is to encourage and engage the church in worship and be a witness of faith to unchurched and unbelievers.
