Change can be a little scary, even if it is for the better.

So a couple things.

My interview is today at 1 PM. I'm hopeful but also realize this may not be the right opportunity.

Also, I have a friend who works at a pretty big organization based here in StL and she got my resume to the head of recruiting earlier this week. I may have another opportunity there.

Last, my wife has two job opportunities and doesn't know which way to go - one, the other or stay put.

Please pray that we have the wisdom to choose the correct thing here. Thanks!

Tomorrow will be the first Sunday without a pastor for our church.  We will have a business meeting and appoint a search committee.  Despite all the troubles this church has had, I feel like God is leading me to put my name in the hat.  My heart aches to see this church ripped apart by various divisions, trials, and now the resignation of the pastor.

For services tomorrow, I will be bringing the message in the morning service.  For our night time service, we will have a "town hall" meeting to discuss what we want in a new pastor, direction for the church in the meantime, and answer any questions the church may have over the situation.  I pray that all goes well and that we can conduct ourselves in a Christ-like manner.

Since it's his forum, I suppose he can post anywhere he likes.

I didn't catch that at all until you said something.

No worries - I've done it before...

That being said, the place I interviewed with is supposed to make a decision today and call me either this afternoon or tomorrow morning. We'll see what happens.

So unrelated to the job call I'm waiting for....

I've been asked to teach the worship team (on which I play acoustic/rhythm guitar and sing a little) every week at the beginning of practice. I have no doubt that God will give me things to say to teach about (especially since we're working on a video series until the end of the year) but please pray that I listen to what God is telling me. I don't want to override what He wants us as a team to hear.

So for those of you who didn't see on Facebook yesterday, they chose someone else for the position.

At this point, thanks for your prayer but i give up. I felt like God told me to look for a new job four years ago and this is what keep happening... so I quit. If God wants me in a new job, He can do it for me.

Bummed to hear that, but maybe God really is saving you for another position.  I can certainly understand the frustration though.

So a quick update.

I have three interviews in the next two weeks.

1. Today I meet with a headhunter about, as she put it, "multiple positions with a couple clients that I think would be a great fit.
2. Tomorrow I interview for my old boss's job - a one step promotion that may or may not be a good idea.
3. Next Tuesday, I will interview for the Staff Development Officer for our region. That would be a two step promotion and I would be over all on-boarding and training for the region, which includes the facility where I currently work and two others in the St Louis area.

Appreciate your prayers for wisdom and that if a door is supposed to open, it will.

That is quite a bit in a short time.  Praying something good will come of it.

Quick update.

1. My interview with the headhunter went well. I have some assessments to do so she can shop me around.

2. The interview for my old boss's position was rescheduled to tomorrow.

Honestly, not too good. I've seen the direction the leadership around here has taken and I think the regional position (which is under a different supervisor and in a different facility) would be a much, much better fit. It would also look sweet on my resume'...

Hmm... were you to get THIS position... would it set you up better to in the nearish future get to the regional position?

Probably not. The regional spot is pretty coveted and once folks get there, they did to stick around. The local position has a high turnover because it's a lot of responsibility and the pay is not worth it. Honestly, I've thought about rescinding my application but the experience of an interview would be good.

Just posted this to Facebook and thought I would share here:

Early last week I posted that I had three interviews in two weeks. The two last week went well. But, if I'm honest, the one today is the one I really want. I'm hopeful and I think it would be a great opportunity for me. 
 
I would appreciate prayers. Interview is today at 3:30.
