Krysti and I are excited to announce that we are expecting our first child! Baby Jones will arrive on June 28th. Both Krysti and the baby are doing well; and, it has been smooth sailing through the first few months.
Vicarage as a whole so far has been a great experience. Having two pastoral vacancies within Woodbury Lutheran Church has allowed me to take on just about any task or responsibility of which I have wanted to gain experience: preaching, teaching, missions, evangelism, youth, visitations, etc...
The biggest responsibility that sits before me though is that, because of our two vacancies, I will be adopting our Oak Hill satellite campus, becoming “their guy.” I will be preaching there every week, playing a role in their ministry programs, serving an active role in their weekly planning meetings, and, in a very real way, becoming responsible for the people God has placed there. It is intimidating and exciting all at the same time, and I cannot wait to see how it shapes me into the pastor that I will become.
