Beginning Of A Journey

July 1st marks the official beginning of our joining of the Trinity Family; however, we have felt part of this family for several months now as we have sold our home, resigned our positions and said goodbye to friends and family in Houston. We are so grateful to be part of this congregation and have felt the presence of God and sense of welcoming and love from you since I began speaking with Pastor Les about the Business Administrator position in March.

To let you know a bit more about us, Mindy and I were married in August 2001 at Tallowood Baptist Church, Mindy’s home church and also the church where we have been members for the past twelve years. We have two children, David (9) and Mary Kate (6). They have just wrapped up VBS at Tallowood and are excited about making new friends at Trinity.

Mindy and I have been serving at Tallowood since returning from Austin in the summer of 2002. We have been involved and have had the honor to lead several committees and ministry teams during our time there. Over the past eight years we have been teaching youth Sunday School with the majority of our time spent teaching 11th graders. We also had the opportunity to work with preschoolers as well as teach a young adult class.

I have been running and leading small and medium sized marketing organizations for the past several years. My core responsibilities in these organizations ranged from marketing and operations to running the client services and business development teams for a healthcare consulting firm. Most recently I have been running two online startups that included a mobile marketing company and an online review company.

I am currently attending Dallas Theological Seminary working towards my Masters degree in Christian Leadership, but I am planning to transfer to Logsdon Seminary in the Fall. I have a Bachelors degree in International Affairs and Marketing from Texas Tech University and an MBA from Houston Baptist University with an emphasis in Marketing and Operations.

Mindy has been employed by ExxonMobil since graduating from the University of Texas with an MBA in 2002. She will continue to work remotely for the next couple of months and will then consider new opportunities. Her undergraduate degree is in Economics from Texas A&M University.

We are so thrilled to begin serving with everyone here at Trinity and are looking forward to years of growing and spreading the Word of God throughout the San Antonio area. As I went through the interview process for this role, I met so many people who are passionate about the mission of Trinity and its role in building God’s Kingdom. It was inspiring to see such love for God, the community and for each other within the family. I can sense God working within the walls of the church and throughout the city. This is an exciting time for all of us!

During the next several weeks I hope to meet as many of you as I can as I learn about Trinity. Please feel free to email me, call me or introduce yourself in person.

Looking forward to the journey.
