After sifting through over 100 applications, we finally selected our five lead pastor residents for the first year of our Lead Pastor Residency Program. This month, our residents are getting settled in at some of our Mars Hill churches and preparing for long-term pastoral leadership. Earlier this week, you met Aaron and the two Ryan Ws. Today, we’d like to introduce you to Drew.
I’m coming from South Carolina to be a part of the Mars Hill Lead Pastor Residency program. I’ve been privileged to serve as an associate pastor in a variety of contexts over the past 6 years: from the inner city of Atlanta to the rural community of Spartanburg, SC. I’ve also been incredibly blessed to be married to my wonderful wife of five years, Laura. She is such an encouragement and has a great heart for those in need. Throughout my years in ministry I find myself constantly reminded that everyone needs Jesus, regardless of background, income, or upbringing—it’s all about Jesus and the hope and healing only he can offer. That truth, along with the moving of the Holy Spirit, is what brought me to Mars Hill and this residency program. It’s an opportunity to do ministry with a church that shares a passion for making disciples and leaders who multiply themselves out of a love for Jesus, the church, and a community in need of a Savior.
