I'm delighted to share God’s provision of Allie Olmstead as the new music director of Nature Coast Church. Allie hails from Grand Rapids Michigan and has spent the last couple of years working at a church in Cincinnati (I’m thinking a little Bengal’s fever has made its’ way to her soul :-) ). Right now the plan is for Allie to arrive to the Nature Coast some time in August.
Allie has attended Wheaton College in Illinois and is finishing up her degree in theological studies this summer from Moody Bible Institute. Allie has felt the call of God on her life from her early years. It is evident that Christ has gifted her musically and it is her desire to use this musical gift and all of her gifts to shepherd the Church of Christ. I believe we are getting more than a musician, but an individual whose identity and calling rest in the finished work of her Savior, Jesus Christ.
My desire from the onset of the search of this position was not ‘better’ music, but a fuller and deeper expression of worship rooted in the reality that Jesus + Nothing = Everything. I believe Allie’s passion for Christ and His Church will bring a deep expression of the presence and beauty of Jesus in our worship services.
So Nature Coast welcomes Allie! We long for Nature Coast to be a home where your soul is nourished and strengthened, but we also believe God has brought you to us knowing that by Christ’s Spirit you will nourish and strengthen us deeper in the love of Christ. We will be praying as Allie makes this transition to a new state and a new call. Life will be changing and busy all that same time.
Christ has been faithful to Nature Coast through the years. Fitting with yesterdays message: Jesus is the King of Glory! He is strong and mighty for Nature Coast. We lean into his love, strength, power and peace as we begin this new part of our journey. We are excited for the future Christ has for us, because it is His story and He is the perfect story writer!
Love you all,
