Personal Update from Dave Berry
I wanted to take a moment to share a personal update. Through a unique turn of providences, and with the elders’ blessing, I have been in conversation with a church in Flagstaff, Arizona searching for a Senior Pastor.
By all accounts, this is an amazing opportunity for the Gospel. Not only in fostering greater health in a local church, but also uniquely discipling and sending out both seasonal residents and college students.
Flagstaff Christian Fellowship, has selected me as their top candidate and is flying my family out Aug 15. The purpose of the visit is to take the final steps in getting to know one another and see if the Lord is truly leading the Berry’s to this new ministry assignment.
The Lord has filled my heart with great joy and satisfaction while serving our students. My family continues to be abundantly blessed by GBC and we have grown in so many ways. Should the Lord lead us to FCF, we are eager to “transplant” those blessings to others.
To be clear, an official position has not been offered to me. The congregation will vote on Sun, September 9th at which point I will be notified of their decision. But, it seems the Lord is in this and things will move forward.
There are many moving parts and hearts involved in this process. It is bittersweet to be sure. Please pray for all and for wisdom, discernment, courage, and unity. Most importantly, for the Lord to be glorified and His will to be done. – Dave Berry
