For some time it has been apparent to me that it was time to share the mantle of leadership. This season of discernment lead to these people. This is the newly formed board of eleven:28. A week ago we spent a day together dreaming about this ministry and what the future could hold. I was so encouraged to share the burden the leadership with each of them and to feel their support. Exciting things are coming! God is on the move!

I am grateful that God knew humanity’s need to share in community. We were not designed to walk this road alone.

Share in life.

Share in hope.

Share in need.

Share in burden.

Share…that is what we were made for!
