Night and Day

posted Apr 13, 2017, 10:09 PM by Greg Ward
Although the time Greg has spent with our congregation has been short, the impact he has had on me and on the Church has been nothing short of profound. When he came, we were static; services (especially the sermons) were meh and uninspiring, there was uncertainty in many realms about roles and responsibilities, and it seemed like we were collectively losing our mojo. That all changed from the very first time Greg was in the pulpit. His first sermon was in an entirely different league from what we had been hearing for the prior year, and every single one of his sermons since then has been riveting, thought-provoking, and inspiring. So much so that, after a month of listening to him knock it out of the park, I felt called to join the Worship Associates team - I felt that Greg was someone I could learn from about how to speak in public about spiritual and personal issues, something I've not done much of. And, I was right; it's been a great experience and I've learned a ton, and Greg has been a superb mentor. From the perspective of our Church, to me it feels like night and day from a year ago. Greg has done hard work to help us better define roles & responsibilities amongst the Board, our myriad committees, and the professional staff. At times his efforts caused sparks - but now it feels to me like we are humming. 

I'll be really, really sorry to see him leave; the next Church to call him will be getting a real gem.
