Bulldog Builders

The winds of change seem to be constantly blowing. Whether it’s the kids growing up, our own aging process, or just the steady drumbeat of the seasons coming and going, change seems a constant companion. Let me tell you of some changes we see coming.

                 Every year, Judy and I do a sort of evaluation on where we are, personally, spiritually, ministry wise. It’s nothing deep or complicated, just a conversation we have sharing our thoughts about the season just passed, where we are currently and what do we want to do about next year. Our conversation this year has led us to the conclusion to call a timeout on holding Bulldog Builders this coming year.

Let me give you some of the reasons for our decision. The first is financial. A typical season of Bulldog Builder ministry runs nearly $10,000. The Lord has faithfully provided revenue sources for us and our church family has faithfully and generously supported us anytime we have requested help. We have always felt totally supported. However, with the loss of the Farm Progress Show money, we would be facing another year of having to raise all our support. Secondly, while student interest in the program remains, the trend is towards lower and lower attendance. I sometimes worry, my voice has gotten a little stale. We have also been told that a Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter has been given the go ahead to start in Ogden. FCA can be a vibrant replacement for Bulldog Builders for our students.

We have always felt led by the Lord in our youth ministry efforts. We continue to seek His will in all we do. Where that leads and what that looks like remains unclear at this time.

What remains is an overwhelming sense of gratitude. We are so grateful for the partnership of our church family. We are grateful for the many friendships we have developed over the years. Mostly, we are grateful beyond description for the unique opportunity we have had to watch the Lord reveal Himself in very personal and unique ways to students all through the years. It has truly been a joy and we are incredibly blessed!

Stay tuned. Things keep changing,

Tom and Judy
