Yesterday I resigned my position at church. See the excerpt below to see where I am going!
Joining us as Editor in Chief for Bible Teaching for Kids Preteen resources is Jeff Land. Jeff currently serves as Preschool and Children's Minister at First Baptist Church, Joelton, TN. Jeff received a Bachelor of Social Work from Mississippi College and a Master of Arts in Christian Education from Southwestern Baptist Theological seminary. Jeff has been accepted into the doctoral program at Southern Seminary. Along with his educational accomplishments, Jeff brings excellent church staff experience and has served as a LifeWay Ministry Multiplier. Jeff has written for Bible Express, LeaderLife, ParentLife, in mINistry with Kids, and Bible Teaching for Kids, Broadly Graded. Jeff is a high energy leader with experience in retail management and a great passion for children and children's ministry. Jeff will begin serving on our team July 1, 2006.
This is very exciting and bittersweet at the same time. We really love the children at our church and really all of the people. We will miss serving on staff, but look forward to being able to "come to church" again!
We are not going to move or anything like that. Thankfully, the new job is in Nashville. I am excited about getting to drive downtown everyday. I love downtown Nashvegas! I will also be traveling some to lead conferences for LifeWay. That will be great experience as well.
