A New Adventure

I haven’t posted at No Credit Needed for the past few weeks, because my family and I have been preparing for a major change in our lives – a new adventure, if you will.

Today, I am starting a new job!

Over the past ten years, I have worked in Christian ministry with a great group of people at a great place.  A few months ago, God began to open the door for me to move to a new ministry, one that I’m very excited about and proud to be a part of.

I will be part of a ministry team that is planting a new church in our local area.  I’ll be the “lead teacher” – charged with teaching folks about Christ and encouraging them to grow in His grace.  I am very excited, because this new opportunity will afford more time for writing and more time for speaking.

Financially, moving to the the new job will present both opportunities and adjustments.  In many ways, this new job will strengthen both my faith – and my determination to be fiscally prudent.

I also plan to launch a new website, dedicated to matters of faith and focused on grace.  I’ll have more information about that in the coming days, as I put things in place, write some articles, and prepare for the roll-out.

As always, No Credit Needed will remain, primarily, about personal finance, debt reduction, and frugal living.  I’ll save the (majority of the) faith-based writing for the new site.

I want to thank you guys for your patience over the past month – and for the large number of you who contacted me, letting me know that you missed the updates.  I missed the writing and am very glad to be “back”.

  1. Great to hear, NCN! I’m excited for you! Many blessings to you and your family as you serve Him.

    Congratulations. Hmm–was that a typo about ‘planting’ a new church? Whether one is planned or planted, I wish you the best. I haven’t forgotten that you were one of the first people to respond to my blog so I’m glad to see that yours isn’t going away even if you’re life is moving in exciting new directions.

    ARRGH! Maybe I should look out for typo’s (and grammatical errors!) of my own. I meant “YOUR” life, not “you’re” life.

  4. Congratulations on your new adventure. Don’t be afraid to inculcate your faith into this site as well. It is refreshing when people stand up for their beliefs.

  5. NCN says:

    Grace, “church planting” is just a term that we use to describe starting a new church. I’m not sure about the origin of the term, but I think it has the idea of “setting down roots, establishing”. I visit your site often! Thanks for the kind words.

  6. Wow, sounds like a great new adventure. Here’s hoping you have tremendous success, and share the good word far and wide!

    Congratulations on your new adventure! I enjoy reading NCN and look forward to future posts.

    Wish you and your team success, I am glad you are writing again, have missed you.

  9. Very cool. I agree with Alcoholic Millionaire that it would be great if you dropped in a few money and faith based articles.

    Either way – good luck!

    Great news NCN! Is this with support from the home Christian ministry or completely separate?

  11. Good stuff! Do you have follow up osts detailing how you mustered up the courage to quit, any type of savings goals beforehand, and long term plans?

    Best, Sam
