Yesterday the board approved the call of Dustin Parish to be our new Youth Pastor of Education and Outreach. We are excited to be adding him as a member of our staff. Our youth will have the opportunity to have an official welcoming celebration at this Wednesday during their normal youth time. Parents are encouraged to come and greet Dustin during the 6-6:30 p.m. eating time. As a young starving recent graduate from OU, I encourage parents and others to invite Dustin to eat in your home or to take him out for a meal.
How did we make contact with Dustin for this position? Some “Awesome God” stories must be shared and this is one of them. The Oklahoma Disciples regional office heard about Ashley Dean’s hard work on our pumpkin patch through her sister, Jennifer Galloway. Jennifer recently was hired as an administrative assistant for the region and was asked to decorate their lobby with our pumpkins. Being a good husband, Travis offered to help Jennifer transport the pumpkins and decorate. Along the way, they saw a young woman whose car had a flat tire. Being good Samaritans, Travis and Jennifer stopped to help. The young woman happened to be dating a young man (Dustin) who had decided to follow a call into youth ministry. Dustin arrived to help with the tire and Travis and Jennifer secured his information to be added as a candidate for our open position. God works in mysterious ways and blesses people who seek to bless others! We are very thankful for the role Ashley, Jennifer and Travis played in helping us make contact with Dustin.
Thanks for leading us by example,
