Today Tony Morgan made this post and Perry Noble made this post. I am sad that New Spring is loosing Tony but am glad that Tony feels like he is being called some where else to do more for Jesus. The thing that probably bothers me the most about both of these post is the fact that they both had to say they didn’t dislike each other and that they were still friends. I think that when you leave a church it doesn’t mean that you have problems with people or the church. I feel that God calls us to be somewhere else for his will and sometimes for your own good. I guess that part of that stems back to when Chris and I decided to leave Park Ave. We loved the people at Park but felt that for us it was time to move on. We enjoyed doing youth ministry but it was really putting a strain on our family. We left because God called us back to VCC to do recovery for ourselves and do ministry as a family. We still pray for Park Ave and want the best for the people there. We haven’t really been back there since we left but have been in touch with several people from there, not to mention that part of our family goes there and we want what is best for them. God just called us somewhere else. One day I am sure that God will call us away from VCC but I am sure that it will be for his will. Right now we are doing great there, our kids are thriving, we are doing ministry, and we feel we are filled with the Holy Spirit. We have meet wonderful people who we now consider family. God called us to more then just change churches he called us to do His works. I hope that we as God’s people can understand that there is nothing personal involved in changes, sometimes God just calls us elsewhere.
