My first speed-dating experience...will hopefully get me a job.

So today at school, we had what Harding likes to call "C-Harmony", a spin-off of eHarmony, where churches from all over the country send ministers, elders, and whomever else they want to in order to interview a flood of Harding students wanting youth ministry internships. There were about 37 churches represented and over 200 interviewees from Harding. Each interview lasted 30 minutes - 2 rounds per hour from 1 to 5 pm. I interviewed with 4 congregations and have mixed feelings about all the interviews. A 30 minute interview is not nearly enough time in my opinion, but hopefully I made a good enough impression on the ministers in order to get some offers. Pray for me that God will guide me to the congregation where he wants me and that my own will and desires don't stand in the way of his. PS: If any of you reading this know of any place that is looking for interns this summer, put in a good word for me...

Back in the Swing of It

A few weeks have passed since my last update. Sorry about that. It's been busy to say the least. Katelyn and I had an awesome Christmas with her family in Indiana. When we got back to Columbia we had much to do before our big move. Then the day finally came - we moved into our apartment here in Searcy last Monday and have spent the last week unpacking, setting things up, reassembling, rearranging, customizing, improving, etc. All the fun of moving. The two greatest things about this move are 1) we're finally able to call somewhere "home" and 2) we finally get to use all the cool wedding presents we got 8 months ago. A new semester of school started today, and I am stretching myself to the limit...just to see what that limit is. I am taking 17 credit hours (which translates into 21 hours of class time) and working about 20 hours per week. So if you don't here from me for a while, I'm most likely either studying my Greek or reading for Advanced Intro to Old Te…
