Friday was my last day as a high school assistant principal (for now). As I took the pictures and diplomas off the walls, boxed up my files and backed up my hard drive I found myself reflecting upon the goodness of God in my life. I have now served as a school administrator in grades and schools ranging from Kindergarten to 12th grade. The past two years at the high school of Taejon Christian International School have been a significant challenge and a great blessing in my life. It is my prayer that any experiences and/or insights that I have gleaned from my administrative and school leadership experiences will be used by God for good in the days ahead.
Looking to the future, I am excited about my new role as the Director of Spiritual Formation Programs at both Taejon Christian International School and Gyeonggi Suwon International School. When I think about the 1000+ students, 300+ staff (and families), and the diversity of the two different schools (in South Korea), I find myself feeling a bit anxious and inadequate for the job. This new job is both a new role for me and a newly created administrative position at each of the schools.
As I embark on this new chapter and experience in my life, I find myself to be in a place of immense dependence upon and trust in God. This is where I want to be. I pray that in the days ahead I might be a part of lifting up the blessed name of Jesus Christ in the world and assisting others on their journey into a deeper relationship with Him.
