I think the biggest question I’ve been getting with the news of my upcoming transition is “where are you going?” The short answer is… nowhere. My job is changing, but my family and I will still be right here in Orlando, connected to a lot of the same things as we are now.
But what about Kensington? Pretty much the same answer. Starting next summer, my full-time job will no longer be with the church, but I will continue to serve as a part of the arts and production teams. After all, Kensington is our home. We have literally poured out our blood, sweat, and tears over the last 8 years, and we continue to be excited for the future. And they’re excited for our future, too. We are transitioning on great terms, doing our best to help each other win as we move forward.
The next several months are me starting to dip my toe into the new Global City world, but really it’s continuing to build team and prepare our campus for the transition to the new theater at Windermere Prep School. We’ve got some capital upgrades in the works, too, and we’re still looking at what does a 24/6 facility look like for our campus. Good stuff is ahead.
So what happens next summer when I officially change roles? Well I won’t be the production director anymore, so my work week will be a bit different. I’ll only be stopping by the Kensington office to bug the team or grab a coffee, but on Sundays I’ll still be in the trenches with the arts & production teams. I’ll still play bass occasionally on stage, and honestly, I’ll probably be able to play more often than I’ve been able to over the last couple years.
We’re still here, and we’re not going anywhere.
BTW… if you want to know more about what we are up to, I’d love to connect.
