I just hit my six month anniversary at Gateway Community Church. Amazing! I can’t believe how fast time has been going by. I also can’t believe how much has changed.

I love what I’m doing, although I’m not totally doing what I’ve been hired to do. However, we’re getting pretty close to having the open positions filled and I’ll be able to move into the role I came to Gateway to fulfill.

This is the 4th time I’ve been the “new guy” coming into an existing organization. I was a lot more intentional in one area and it has provided great results and I’d recommend this to anyone coming into a new job in a new organization. In many ways it was a “low hanging fruit” that was ripe for the picking. I’m going to expound on what I did tomorrow. I no expert by any means, I just tried something and it worked really well. Hopefully what I have to say might guide someone going into a new organization or serve as a good reminder for others that have let this one slip.
