“God is on the Move” is the name of a song, yes, but for my wife, Terri, and me, it became an anthem. As the lead pastor at Connect Church in a small community of Northern Oklahoma, I gladly tell this story.
On July 11, 1999, my wife and I moved to Ponca City, Oklahoma. We were both only a few years out of college. This was my first senior pastor assignment, and I was excited. I preached my first sermon to 20 people who might have been at least two decades older than Terri and me.
My thought was, “Wow! It’s empty out there.”
