Thursday the staff at First Pres threw me a going away party that was truly special. The minister of music, who has been my boss for the last several years, took the time to share how much our collaborations had meant to him and the impact he felt I had made on the ministry here and that was very nice. I have to say, though, that the highlight was the mini-documentary that several staff members had managed to produce behind my back. It cronicled the pranks that we have all worked together to play on our boss, and it was really very funny.
Here you can see Jim talking about one of his family photos. The gag here is that we replaced the faces in Photoshop with members of the Music Department.
This is Jim discovering the photo.
It truly has been a pleasure to have this opportunity to be working in, and honestly establishing, an important ministry. I have high expectations for what First Pres will do in the field of media long term, and I am very thankful to have been a part of it.
As I sit here on my final morning, cleaning out my office, all of the stress and pressure of the past several years has begun to fade, and I find myself looking back fondly on my time here. I cannot wait to see what God will do next, but this truly has been a blessing.
Now… On to support raising!
