Here's an excerpt from a letter mailed to the CHC family:
It is no secret that God has called us to train leaders beyond the walls of the local church. We knew that eventually God was going to give us many platforms and opportunities to share what has been imparted to us. We never expected that it would be in marketplace ministry. However, God’s ways are higher than ours and His plan is perfect.
So it is with mixed emotions that we announce to you that I have accepted the position of Sales Manager for Digital Technology Solutions of Georgia.
We want to make it clear that we believe God has called us to this opportunity. There is nothing about Christian Heritage that is causing us to leave. Our 4+ years here have been nothing but amazing. We love this church and want the best for it. We are grieved that we will be moving so far away from so many of our family and friends. We desire to keep in touch with you and to support Pastor Chris, the interim team and elders. We are excited about the future of CHC and will continue to pray for you as they search for a pastor. We would hope that you will view this as sending us out to complete the Great Commission, rather than our simply moving to another job. Thank you for how you have encouraged us, challenged us, and made us part of your family.
Our plan is to be here for another few weeks and then transition to DTS / Xerox after Sunday, October 5th. We would very much like these final weeks to be a sweet time of fellowship with you. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you in these last weeks.
Our desire has not wavered from an early sermon I preached here in 2004. We may be the only ones who remember it. It was called “Jesus is Very Great.” Doing what He has called us to do is and will continue to be our primary passion. In Acts 20:24, Paul says, “I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me, the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s Grace.”
We are launching out into the deep! We covet your prayers for a smooth transition for both Christian Heritage and the Taylor family.
