We poured our heart, soul and finances into the building and people of Family Life Center! The Holy Spirit was moving and people we’re getting saved every week during a season right before Jon arrived. We were excited about the arrival of “the NEXT leader”, Pastor Jon,
He did a great job building team, loving and trying hard THEN...
he teamed up with the Prestons and the exclusions began.
Matt and I were confused about being shut out and excluded.
We deciphered we were not “cool enough” to be part of this new team. They made us feel invisible and unwanted. The Preston’s disrespected us in many ways. We witnessed the leadership team’s lack of love for the people. So, after many hours of praying, seeking and crying we left quietly. It was so painful to drive past Family Life Center, we sold our house on Greenhorn after 13 years of loving it.
We have been so damaged from this experience that finding a new home has been tough. BUT ... GOD IS GOOD and we have decided to finally commit to our new church in Tucson AZ. Hallelujah!
