Network Pastors

Today I got to connect with another pastor for lunch and some time processing the work of God in his church.  Pastor Jason is the pastor of Cedarville A/G.  He was a classmate at Valley Forge Christian College where we graduated in 2000.  At that time he was a married student, which meant we didn't run in the same circles all the time, but we had classes together and a mutual respect for the young calling on our lives.

A couple years later we ended up living only a mile apart, and working in local churches within 15 miles of each other, but still didn't connect as much as I would have liked.  In the last few years we have been more intentional about trying to get together, and more and more I value his growing friendship.  He is a few years ahead of me coming to a small church in the Capital Maryland area.  It was very helpful to share my first impressions of my current setting, and to hear his common experience, insight, and advice. 

I'm looking forward to connecting with him more, and appreciate his time very much.
