Letter from Isaac

To my First Christian family.

I love that Sarah and I have been able to be a part of this family over the last 6.5 years, but at the end of this month we will move away from Florida and continue our ministry in Greenford, Ohio. I love a tagline that we sometimes say around here- One family, with one focus, and one unbelievable future. That is what I feel we are. We are onefamily, and we have one focus. And I still believe that the future is going to be unbelievable. First Christian Church is a phenomenal church that has an incredible future. The youth of this church have become my family. And I will forever cherish every moment with them. Every camp, every Wednesday night, the youth Sundays, soccer games, summer events, holiday parties, late night conversations, eating Ice cream, and so much more. I was trying to remember a favorite memory, but I seriously couldn’t narrow it down to one- there are SO many. I have witnessed so many students overcome fears, struggles, and doubt and devote their lives to Christ. To even be a small part of that, I am a blessed man.

My hope for the future is that you pray for us and send us out. Just because the location is different does not mean that love has to end. I will ALWAYS cherish this place and it will have a special place in my heart. The best way that we can phrase it is we are excited to head in this new direction, but hate that we have to leave.

I will be taking a youth ministry position at Greenford Christian Church. One thing that Sarah and I have been praying for is for an opportunity to be closer to home. I have 4 incredible brothers and awesome parents that I am excited to be close to. Sarah will be much closer to her family as well. Sarah and I have bathed this decision in prayer. Even though leaving here is going to be incredibly hard- God has given us peace in all areas.

I have been in continuous prayer for the future of this church. I pray that the next Youth pastor can far exceed what has been done here. I pray that God brings someone that can fill any void- that his strengths play into the areas that I was weak. I expect growth to continue to happen because I whole-heartedly believe that the students of this church are the leaders. Students, you know what to do and how God has gifted you. Go! Lead.

I’m thankful for a staff and eldership that has loved and supported me every step of the way. I am leaving some of my best friends on this staff. You are blessed to have Darin, Tommy, Jen and Lee leading this church. The elders love you and pray for you often. People really care here and I hope that you understand that You Matter so much to God and you matter to me.

Again, we invite you to be a part of this journey with us by praying for us. It is not easy because of the amount of love that we have for this church, but I am humbled to think about how God will continue to move through His Church both here and in Ohio.

I love you!

– Isaac
