Dear Denver family,
It’s with much prayer and counsel that I have resigned from my position as Worship Director effective October 13
. The past two years have been ones of growth, clarity and healing. When I took the position in January of 2018, I was beginning what I know now as the last 8 months of the most difficult 3 years of my life. Prior to me coming here, I had been the primary caretaker for a friend that was very sick, spending a year of the 3-year journey in the hospital. January of 2018 was still a volatile time, but I knew the opportunity to serve with you all here was an opportunity for God to restore my soul. He did that through our times together in worship, my time in youth worship, and time with our small group that met at Fran’s house . From January – August there were low lows and the highest of highs in my friend being healed by a surgery in June. I gave all that I could to this congregation during that time, but it wasn’t until October when things became normal again that I was able to give more. I felt as if I have been all in the past year, or as all in as I could be as part-timer. The last four months I have had some of the most memorable moments in rehearsals and worship with the choir, band, and the youth. There is truly more talent here than anywhere I’ve served. However, through emails and general conversation it has become clear that I am not the right person to lead this program into the future. I believe wonderful things are in store for DUMC, and I am praying for you all as you continue to move forward.
