Moving West to Central

28 Nov

In a few minutes, I’ll be loading up the car and heading west. My destination for the evening: Rockford, IL. And then I will rise early tomorrow morning to drive the remainder of the way to Plymouth, MN, home of Central Baptist Theological Seminary, where I will begin my first week as Assistant to the President, serving under my friend and mentor, Kevin Bauder.

The timing of the move creates some complications: I will be commuting to Minneapolis for the next month or so. Following Christmas, I will work for the Seminary from here in Michigan, as Alicia and I eagerly wait together for the arrival of our firstborn (due January 14). We’ll then look to be moving to Minnesota sometime in late January or early February.

    Nice. Good luck with the job. Lousy time to move! My pastor at Providence did the same thing and we unloaded a truck in -10.

    I’m glad you’re here! Anything you need, holler. I know where everything is, except a good Chinese buffet and my wallet. Scratch that, found my wallet. Anyways, welcome!

    Good on ya Mike!
    You do realize however that Central is distancing themselves from KB and you will be working for someone whose (if a certain someone’s prayers are answered) “funding for his new position will dry up quickly.” :D

    All snarkiness aside, may God bless in this new adventure for you, Alicia and your upcoming progeny.

    Mr. Ames and consequently Mr. Riley,

    If you are looking for a good Chinese buffet – I have been working with the local Chinese people for the past 4 years or so. The best buffet in town is the Grand City Buffet down on Highway 6 and 169 by the Target…

    Great to have you join us, Mike!
