Pastor Nate Taverner’s announcement
This past weekend, Pastor Nate shared the following announcement with our church family:
It's tough to know how to start this announcement, if I'm being honest. I don't have eloquent words, so am just going to share from my heart. In recent years and months, I've been struggling with things in my personal life, and while I'm not ready to discuss the details of these things, they have been extremely difficult on me and have greatly impacted not only my personal life but also other areas that I'm involved in. While I love my job as a pastor, it is a struggle to lead and shepherd others during this season. For this reason and others, and after much prayer, thought and counsel, I have decided to step away from my role at Timberline. This has been an extremely difficult decision, and there is part of me that will never want to leave Timberline church, but it feels like the right time to step back. Meagan and I love this church and will always be thankful to God for and treasure our time with you and with Timberline. We are humbled by all of your love and support over the many years we've been with you. We couldn't be more thankful that God placed us on this team for the time that He did. We love you all so much, and we covet your prayers as we move forward over the next several weeks and as we transition out of our roles here. – Pastor Nate Taverner
This is both tough to hear and yet we’re also firmly behind the Taverners in this decision.As a church family, we will take time in our weekend services on March 21/22 to pray over and appreciate the Taverners as a send-off. Also, we have a basket for well-wishes and messages of support for Nate and Meagan at Guest Services through the month of March.
Please continue to pray for Nate and Meagan and do what you do best: Let Love Live!
