I’ll go where He leads me

Well, with the release of Glasgow Church’s weekly newsletter, Redemptive Presence, this is at last public information that I can share. Here is the article I wrote for the newsletter this week…

Dear Glasgow Church family—
These last three years at Glasgow have been incredible for Kim and I. We have been privileged to serve alongside of you in rebuilding New Orleans. You have entrusted your children to me everywhere from the soccer field to Kids’ Church. You encouraged me as I have grown as a preacher with the stories of how God has spoken to you through me. We have laughed with some of you and cried with others. We were part of one amazing
House Church and left that one to start an equally amazing Journey. And, most dear to us, you celebrated with us when our son, Jeremiah, was born. Thank you for your friendship and your partnership in the gospel. It truly has been our joy to minister to this wonderful congregation.
It is that joy that makes this article so very challenging to write, so I will just say it. I have accepted a call as the Executive Pastor of a PCA church in Sarasota, Florida. May 15 will be my final day at Glasgow Church as we prepare for this transition. While we are excited about this next phase of ministry into which God is leading us, we will miss each of you deeply. May God bless each of you and the ministry of Glasgow Church as together you labor to see the Kingdom of God go forth into a hurting world.
For Christ,
Steve Jeantet

So, there it is. On June 1 I begin the next phase in my ministry at Covenant Life Church in Sarasota. These last three years have been a great learning experience for me as God has used this time at Glasgow to clarify my unique pastoral call by focusing my passions, developing my skills and giving me the opportunity to grow. And now, as that call becomes clearer, God has presented an opportunity that matches my gifts, abilities and passion in ministry very well. It just so happens, it is in Sarasota. With that, Kim, Jeremiah and I are moving back to Florida. Please pray for us throughout this transition for our family, for Glasgow Church and their ongoing ministry and for the opportunities that lie ahead of us to grow the Kingdom in Sarasota.
