The Traveling Vagabond Gets a Job!!!

I know I took a break from posting, but trust me when I say God has been up to a whole lot with the Hopler fam!

It is with great honor that I announce that Terri, Levi and I will be moving to Orlando, Florida as I serve as the National Director of Church Strengthening for the Converge Network!!!

Converge has 1254 churches across the nation.  They are a forward thinking movement whose vision statement is: Starting and Strengthening churches together worldwide.  My position will be focusing on the strengthening part of the vision.

I will have the privilege of serving district leaders and churches in coaching, helping to rethink strategy, to journey with those who are stuck in ministry, encouraging, setting up national and regional seminars and pastoring pastors.   In short, this is a dream ministry for me.

We will live in Orlando Florida, close to Disney and the beach.  Yes we will have a guest room :-)  

This season has been crazy to be certain, but it has been good.  The Crossing has been quite good to us during our 3 ½ years serving as well as the transition.  As I blogged earlier, we have deeply held onto Jesus' words for the last few months of Matthew 6, ““That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life… Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need”  and Psalms 37 “Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart… Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him”

Even if we did not get this dream position, God will still have been good.  It is just cool to be a part of His Kingdom plan

Thanks for all of your prayers and support!
