Transitions!

Dear Friends,

It’s become clear to me over the past few months of personal discernment that the Front Porch has run its course and given its gift. And it’s been a great run and grand adventure in missional ministry over the past decade! I have no doubt that the Front Porch will continue as an idea and brand—as a way of thinking, really. But I believe it’s now time for the vestry and board to officially dissolve the Front Porch as a 501c3 nonprofit.

In the meantime, I’ve accepted a position as director of development for Interfaith Action of Central Texas (iACT). I am also helping the Fiji fraternity across the street to be more involved in community service—over the next few months they will be paying for and building two new mini-homes for folks who are homeless at the Community First Village.

At All Saints’, I’ll continue assisting with the Sunday liturgy, with pastoral care and with teaching programs, like the Lenten Catechumenate class, the Bailey Lectures, and the adult forum on Sunday mornings. We’re also discussing how I might help support our outreach ministries, especially Loaves and Fishes and Home Cooked Fridays. My primary office hours will be on Mondays and Thursdays.

As I begin this new chapter, please know how grateful I am for the chance I’ve had to serve as the director of the Front Porch at All Saints’. It’s been fun and fruitful!

Gratefully yours,

Stephen
