One of the great blessings in any ministry is to see how God draws in others to participate in this work together with Him.
You quickly get the sense that you are involved in something bigger than just what you can see yourself.
In a previous email, I introduced the expansion of our core planting team and mentioned a little bit about who they were and their job titles.
Today, I wanted to quickly tell you a little bit more about them.
- Claire Christian will be joining us to lead our worship ministry. She is currently finishing up her time at CCU studying worship arts and has been a worship ministry intern at Wellspring for 2021. In addition to being a gifted worship leader with a heart to serve others, she also has first-hand experience helping in a church plant. We are excited to welcome team Claire to the team!
- Steven Sifers will be joining the team as our “leadership apprentice.” As I write his job title, I laugh out loud because he is a retired Army Ranger Colonel–and so he probably knows a thing or two about leadership. In the Anglican world, if someone is sensing a call to explore church ministry, we call them an “aspirant”. Since that term is confusing to a lot of people, we chose the word apprentice. Steven and his wife Debbie have a huge heart for the church and to see people come to know the Lord in a deep and life changing way.
- Craig Thighe will serve Christ the King as a “planting apprentice”. Like Steven, Craig has a wealth of experience and gifts and is newly exploring a calling to serve the church in a full-time capacity. In his spare time, he’s an FAA examiner, pilot, and all around master griller. He and his wife Kristin have a powerful story of God working in their lives and want to explore how God can use them in the building of His church.
Do you know anyone who is awesome with children and has a heart to see them grow in the Lord? We are still looking for a Children’s Ministry Leader! If so, please email us and let them know to reach out to us!
