To the Board of Directors and beloved Church Family of Life Fellowship Community Church,

For the past 11 years, it has been the greatest joy and honor of my life to serve as the Pastor of this amazing congregation.

Together, we have lifted up our Savior, Jesus, grown numerically and spiritually, served the community, supported U.S. and world missionaries, helped plant churches, and have seen countless lives and families changed for the glory of God. As far as Cyndi and I are concerned, this has been the absolute sweetest time of our lives.

In light of all this, it is with great surprise, and mixed emotions, that I submit my resignation, effective June 30, 2014, as Pastor of Life Fellowship Community Church, so that I may follow the leading of the Father to my next assignment.

I know that Jesus led me here. And now that He is leading me in another direction, I know that He is already preparing another Pastor for leadership here. We have His promises, "I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it." (Matthew 16:18) And "I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding." (Jeremiah 3:15) 

Cyndi and I are forever grateful to God for the ministry, love, friendships, and our time here. We truly love Life Fellowship.

With love and all sincerity,

Rev. Paul Burke
