The Normans are Moving

God has been so good to us here in Kansas. It has been my honor to serve these past 19 months as the Lead Pastor of Crossroads Friends Church, and I have grown close to many new friends and families here. And sadly, that time has now come to an end.

Several months ago, God began working in my heart – pressing on my soul that I needed to return and finish my seminary training. I could not escape that calling. And I applied for acceptance to seminary with the full intention of taking courses online until God opened the door for me to attend in person.

Over the course of the last few weeks, that door began to creak open until it was clear that God was leading me in that direction. It was with a heavy heart that I shared this with our elders, and announced it to our church this morning at Crossroads.

We will be leaving Kansas, headed back to Texas, with the intention of pursuing an M.Div. at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth.

I covet your prayers for our church.

I covet your prayers for our family.

I covet your prayers that in this time of transition, God would receive the glory and that his blessing would be upon us all.


  1. David,
    You and your beautiful family are in our deepest of thoughts and prayers as you set out in pursuit to fulfill God’s Will. I am so thankful that I had an opportunity to attend a service while visiting in Kansas last summer. You have been such a blessing to my family and I am forever grateful. God bless :).

  2. David and Krista,
    You, your family, and your church family are in our prayers during this time. We love you so much, and we pray that God will continue to lead you in His way. You have been a blessing to so many lives, and I am confident that God is going to continue to use you and your family for His service and His glory.
    Of course, we are always happy to see a Texan come home. 🙂
    Hope to see you guys soon!!
    Love, The Bryants

  3. We are so grateful for the time that you have been a part of our lives. You are a big part of the reason I am with the church today. You have been a great inspiration to me and my family. You will truly be miss both as our pastor and as a friend. We wish you and your family the best as you continue your journey.
