We Got the Job!!!

Derek and I are connected with Stony Hill Baptist Church in many ways. One of those ways is through Lauren, my brothers girlfriend.  She has grown up in that church. So, Derek and I found out that their youth pastor was leaving through Lauren and Derek jumped on the opportunity.  Derek LOVES to teach and we both have heart to see young men and women get saved and walk with the Lord, be strong enough that they can go to college and stay strong in their Faith in the Lord and not waiver when they are on their own.  So, Lauren mention somthing to Jamie about Derek being interested and Jamie was very excited. :)  From then on Derek met with Jamie and then the Youth Committee and we went through a few other meeting with youth, families, Deacons, etc.  On April 25, 2010, Stony Hill Baptist Church voted on Derek to be the new Youth Pastor!! The vote was a 95% yes!!!! How awesome!! Derek and I met with the Youth Council that night and went over all the events that we had coming up! Very exciting!! :)  I snagged some pictures from Stony Hill's website to post with this! Thank you friends and family for your Prayers through this process.  Derek and I feel 100% that this is where God wants us! :)

Little did we know all those years we worked together that we would one day be serving the Lord in the same church! And what about when Jamie was your professor in HOI??? So grateful to have you and Derek working with our youth and I KNOW the Lord is going to do great things at SHBC! Congratulations to you both and looking forward to seeing you much more often:)
