Personal Update

lockyerI have made several changes that are significant the past two months. One is that I resigned as a family pastor at the church I had been serving for 13 years and made a move back to my roots in education. An opportunity opened at Lincoln Christian School to assist the administration that I accepted. The job entails assisting the superintendent in leadership and staff development throughout the school and work on continued improvements in other areas.

I have been on the job nearly 4 weeks now and it has been great to be back with kids (nearly 700 of them) on a daily basis. Much has changed in the 13 years I have been gone but still enough is familiar that I am quickly fitting in. The reception by the school families has been frankly overwhelming and affirming that God was definitely working to make it happen.

I will continue to pursue to encourage living out the Word through a gospel-centered lens through this blog and have the opportunity to stimulate that in the lives of these students and faculty. I have also been asked to consider giving parenting seminars on a regular basis at the school.

My wife, Deb, and I will be making many adjustments right now but know with certainty at this time that the opportunity before is a gift from God.
