After 12 amazing years in Los Angeles and part of the Mosaic community, we are filled with a mixture of emotions as we’ve accepted a position at a church in Austin.
We are so sad to leave our friends and neighbors in L.A., and we will miss our Mosaic family a great deal. Originally we planned to be in Los Angeles for 6 months, but we fell in love with Mosaic and the people of Los Angeles. We will never be the same as a result of the investment and friendship of so many great people! Through them we have seen courage, wisdom, generosity, faith, hope, and love lived out in such dramatic and amazing ways!
At the same time we are excited to be closer to our extended family as we serve in a city where 85% of the people aren’t connected to a church. Austin has been called the “Third Coast” for its similarities to the West and East Coast along with its film industry and music scene. After 16 years on the West Coast, we are now heading to the “Third Coast.” We will share more about our adventures there in the new year.
I shared more about how this all came about yesterday at a couple of the Mosaic gatherings. You can here the story at www.mosaic.org/podcast in a couple of days.
For now, we appreciate your prayers for a smooth transition from Los Angeles to Austin (as well as for the sale of our house). We plan to finish strong and start well!
Thanks so much for your prayers! More details soon….
