As a church family that gathers in a variety of expressions every Sunday across the city of Nashville, it is important that we know how to love and pray for one another during seasons of transition. Yesterday, (Sun, Dec 3rd) our church family that gathers in Hillsboro Village heard some big news that will shape this next season of life and ministry. Below are a few things you need to know regarding the next few weeks at Hillsboro Village.
1. Larkin Briley's Next Steps
Yesterday Larkin shared with our family at Hillsboro Village that he will be transitioning into a new season of life and ministry. Larkin has been a part of the Ethos family for 7 years, and has faithfully been leading our family at Hillsboro Village for the last 3 years. Although we are sad for our loss, we are excited and grateful not only for what he has done, but for what he is choosing to step into in the weeks and months ahead. We believe that Larkin's best years of ministry are still ahead of him. We thank God for the gift of walking along side of him over the last 7 years, and we send him out full of faith and hope.
On Sunday, December 10th, we will have a celebration meal for Larkin and Virginia Briley as we send them into this next chapter. If you are a part of the Hillsboro Village Family, we invite you to join us for a combined worship gathering at 10am with a meal immediately to follow.
We encourage you to bring a card/note with your thoughts, prayers, and well wishes for their next season.
2. Joshua Solowey Named Interim Pastor for Hillsboro Village
Although we are sad to see Larkin transition, we are incredibly hopeful for the future of Ethos Church Hillsboro Village. As we enter into this new season of vision and discernment, Joshua Solowey will step in as the Interim Campus Pastor beginning on Sunday, December 17th. Joshua has been a valuable member of the Ethos team for nearly 6 years, and has been a part of the leadership team at Hillsboro Village since day one. Joshua will do an incredible job serving the church and leading them team into this next season of ministry.
