Well guys. After two years of working for Essential Artist Services, I have left and am now a 100% independent contractor.
I wasn’t nervous about quitting; I knew the time had come to part ways. I didn’t have another job lined up, but I had several options in the works. Turns out, I only had to wait a couple of weeks to be offered a job, with one artist that I have always wanted to work with.
That artist is Kari Jobe. I remember seeing her in concert about 4 or 5 years ago and I have never been more moved or cried more during a concert before. It wasn’t just a concert, it was an experience.
I had the opportunity to work with Kari and her team at a Joyce Meyer conference in St. Louis this past fall, so I was stoked to be able to come back for the spring Garden Tour.
We are 5 shows in out of 30, and tonight I leave for 27 days. I have already made some incredible friendships, learned a lot about myself, and somehow gotten approximately 27 bruises. It can be hard to leave behind a city that I love with friends that I care about, but I am just so excited about this opportunity.
It’s already been an incredible 5 shows, so I can’t wait to see what happens over this month long run. I know it will include laughter, sweat, prayer, community, and love. And of course, stories that one can’t possibly make up on their own.
Here’s to new adventures with new friends!
