Because my family is well known to many Omaha residents, it fits the purpose of this blog to mention that this weekend, my father resigned as Lead Pastor of Southwest Community Church in Indian Wells, CA. This resignation was due very simply to the elders’ determination that the church needed a new season of leadership. There’s no back story, no hidden conflict, no underlying issues… just a mutual decision that one season has ended and another is beginning in the leadership and direction of the church.

The Desert Sun carried a story on the resignation today that includes statements from Dad and from the elders at Southwest.
