It’s quiet in the office today. Its been almost two weeks now. But after two years of walking by the Senior Pastors office and seeing him sitting there every day, it’s still a little weird that its empty. Not just an empty chair, but every thing is gone. The pictures on the wall, the desk water fall. All that remains is an empty desk with a silent computer, an empty chair and two years of memories floating in the silence.
I wish Pastor Alan the best at his new mission assignment in Mich. I know that God has blessed them beyond imagination with this new church.
I will miss him, but I will also enjoy taking over his office until a new pastor is found!
I would love to hear any comments from other youth ministers that have ever survived a transition of Senior Pastors. Feel free to comment.
