Statesboro, GA, is a lovely town in the southeast corner of the state. I flew into Savannah, which is one of my favorite cities in the US. If you’ve never been there, I recommend it as a vacation destination. You can spend a good bit of time just driving around and looking at statues commemorating different aspects of Methodist history. It is really something.
I greatly enjoyed working with Tim Steffen. After spending a few days with him, I felt like we had known one another for years. We had a great deal in common in terms of our faith and philosophy of ministry. He is doing a remarkable job in this church. I was asked to come to his church by his children’s director, Nina Townsened. They have just completed a wonderful children’s ministry wing on their church and wanted me to come in and help them to dedicate the space to the Lord by holding a BibleQuest and storytelling event for them. It was such a blessing to be there and to partner with them in ministry.
The space is amazing! They made it a place where children will be very much at home. Bright colors, hands on child friendly experiences, state of the art audio-visuals, and a cracker-jack staff to put it all together. If you want to get a look at a church that’s done it right, I encourage you to take a trip to Statesboro and see what they’ve done!
