The Next Unwritten Chapter  

Posted by Stephen Lowe

So after just over a year of being on staff at Fusion, my time here has come to an end. Fusion is having to make some tough financial decisions given today's economic times and unfortunately, I am a casualty of that. The reality is, with so many people out of work and company cutbacks, there is less money to give and the church as a whole has to make adjustments accordingly. My experience at Fusion has been amazing and I wouldn't trade that time for anything else. I have learned more, been stretched and grown in areas I never would have been without being here. I love Fusion and wholeheartedly believe in the vision and mission of the church. I plan on still being here serving and volunteering as long as my job search does not force me to relocate. The staff at Fusion is amazing and it has been a great joy working with and getting to know them over this past year. I would like to thank all the folks at Fusion, especially the volunteers for their support and hard work over the past year. No matter what happens in the future, I will always consider Tony McCollum to be my Pastor as well as a friend for life.

I would appreciate your prayers in the coming weeks for me as well as my family as I enter a tough job market and seek employment. I am praying that God will not only provide a job but that he will place me where I can be most effective and still have impact for His kingdom. I am praying for provision for my family in the interim until I can find a full time position. I know this is just another step in the plan God has for my life. I trust Him fully to guide me through this and I am praying He reveals that plan and the way through it quickly. He always has and will continue to provide for me and my family.

Thank you Fusion!
