Since Tasha and I met in 2012, we knew we were called to do something far greater than ourselves. As we have continued to seek the heart of God, we began to see that His call on our life was to pastor a church. As we now see this dream beginning to unfold, we are filled with excitement and anticipation to begin the next chapter of our journey. We are young professionals that are beginning an amazing time in our lives. This is not going to be an easy step to take, but we are confident that we are doing what God has called us to do and we are excited to see God fulfill His purpose through us.
For the past three years, Tasha and I have served in leadership positions in our local church. During this time, God has developed in us a huge heart and passion for the local church. We are confident that serving in these churches has equipped us for a time to lead and serve our generation. It was a great experience, one in which we have grown in many ways.
We are so grateful that we have been blessed with the oppourtunity to serve this community in a full time capacity. I have taken the skills that I have developed and applied them to the ministries we have been a part of and recognized growth. We have been offered some wonderful opportunities to disciple new believers, grow leaders, and communicate God’s truth in a life-giving way. I feel this experience has taught me what true leadership is and how to effectively lead and inspire others. We understand that we have a lot to learn, but we have experienced first hand the skills that are needed to plant an effective church. We have seen how a church can change the community by reaching out to those who are hurting, lost and in need. This is what has inspired Tasha and I to do the same in the Downtown Memphis area.
