As spring is starting to bring changes to the Earth, Spring is also bringing changes to the staff in the Children’s ministry at Zion. We are sad to start our good-byes to Brianna Carlson and Jonathan Shun.
Brianna has served as our family events coordinator and Sunday school coordinator since August 2019. When she joined us in the ministry at Zion she had also interviewed with a different company, who at the time did not have a position to offer her, however, in February 2020 she was contacted and offered a full-time position with good benefits. She decided at this point in her life this was something she could not turn down. So she finished her time at Zion at the end of February.
I have enjoyed getting to know everyone here over the last several months, and it has been an honor to be allowed to share God’s word with your children.
Jonathan has served as our GIFT coordinator, nursery coordinator and confirmation coordinator since August 2019. Jonathan has been enjoying exploring his call to ministry and has enjoyed teaching and doing children’s messages at Zion, however, has he has discerned his gifts for ministry has decided his positions at Zion were not using his gifts to their full extent. So Pastor Ted, Pastor Suzi and Jonathan are working on a transition plan for Jonathan to be exiting these positions and ending well. Jonathan will continue to serve as the Zion Day Camp Director.
With all staff changes we enter into a season of unknown, questions and good-byes. We humbly ask for your prayers during this time of transitions, prayers that God continues to lead and guide the children’s ministry at Zion, prayers for these staff who are transitioning away from Zion and prayers for our future partners in ministry.
