Six years later, the consequences of their decision is felt when Rey accepts a position as senior pastor at Community Outreach Church in Hillbrooke, Michigan. This dream job met all his material needs; a beautiful parsonage, affluent church membership and a generous pay package.
Shortly after his arrival in Hillbrooke, the Holy Spirit speaks to Rey, gently leading him to step out from the comfort of the familiar and reach out beyond the walls of his church building. Following a tragedy, Rey is faced with regret and sorrow for his lack of action.
Did he take a job based solely on money and power, choosing less in the end? Or is he in the center of God’s will? Will he reach out to the broken, love the unlovely and care for those in prison or will he surrender to other voices choosing the path of least resistance?
Jeremiah 29:11 The Message Bible: I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.
