a year of new beginnings

had a "dress rehearsal" today (this morning) in the new facilities - all i can say...


wow

it was incredible to worship with the large group of people that i've served with over the past 3 years or so - the excellence, the atmosphere, the anointing - it's going to be a great tool that God can use over to reach more people, more generations, more cultures, more races, more people, more people, more people - it's all about the people that aren't there yet...

on a personal level, it probably hit home more than ever today as i had this realization..."in 24 hours i'll be doing this for the last time, but they'll be doing it for the first time!" - i was excited and sad at the same time - up to this point i've just been excited...

you see, i truly believe that God is going to use cotn for amazing things in the future...as well, i'm really excited about the new opportunity that lies ahead for us as a family and for me as a Christian leader - again, the best is yet to come

so, on this, the 199th post on rickwomack.com, i wish to say "see ya" to all my cotn family...i'll miss you, i love you all, i believe in you, i believe in your pastor and the leaders at cotn, and i pray only God's best, God's blessing and God's anointing for your future. many of you we'll cross paths again from time to time with, some of you will move on, some will forget about us - hey, it happens :) - regardless, it's been fruitful and fun - there's no other opportunity that i would feel as confidently that God has called us to than this new season

so, tonight as i write my last post regarding cotn, i do so with a lot of thankfulness and a whole lot of expectation as i and my family look to the future...

good night!

Okay, so now I'm in tears.... I surely will miss you and your precious crew. You guys are awesome and have added so much to the reason we are doing things more excellently (is that a word??). I can't say how much I, personally, appreciate your time and effort (probably more time and effort than any of us realize) because I know the kind of person you are and how much you put into everything you do. I know God has great things in store for you all but again, I will miss your giftings that have blessed us so. I am glad I can still keep up with you guys through rickwomack.com and pray tons of blessing and fruitfulness to be upon you. Also want to thank you for the way you have supported Kristin in this past year. I believe it was a "God thing" that the Lord had you as her leader during this time. I am jealous (in a good way) for the PH church and what they are getting in you all. Keep being "edgy" (watch out for those steps) and doing what you do and allowing God full reign. Can't wait to hear of the awesome things God's going to do with and through you all. Mucho blessings to you four!! Lots of LOVE!!!!

I have mixed feelings as you do. I am so excited about what God is doing in your lives and about what God has asked you to do in this new season of your lives. But of course I will hate seeing the hole that all of you will leave at COTN. Not just the hole you leave as a leader but as godly Christian brothers and sisters that have blessed us in so many ways. I am so glad we are all still a part of the same body of Christ, because in Him we have no separation. We will always be here for you no matter where you serve and we love you all so much.

God bless,
Debbie and the Parker Family

I'm not sure I know how to go to church without the Womack's. Who will I harass? Who will harass me?! Anyway, I'm going to miss seeing you at church but I treasure the friendship so I'll be seeing ya! It's just a little weird to know I will be going to a church w/out "MY pastor".

Well I just read this today a week after you wrote it and of course there are so many things that I could and have already said, most of all you know I love you brother and your family. I just realized that tomorrow morning I will get up and go to cotn and I will be alone, I wont have you to lean on or ask a question to and truly that makes me sad. I know I am ready but my security blanket is gone.The good news is you are doing exactly what God called you to do and so am I. We both could not be in better position and for that I am very thankful. But just know you will be missed!!! Now remember don't bring your own snakes to church, if reptiles are needed the church will provide them?!?!? Also do me a favor and kill the devil, will ya, please?!?!? Todd
