Over a year ago, Brian Smith shared with us his intention to “retire,” as we have been saying, and to step down from his role as our worship director in May of 2024. And as much as we wished that day would never come, it has indeed arrived. Sunday, May 19, will be Brian’s last day as our worship director, at which point he will shift from a part time member of our staff, to an everyday member of the Midcurrent family. That’s the great news! He’s not going anywhere, and (after a couple months to catch his breath) he is looking forward to being an enthusiastic volunteer on some of the very teams you all serve with every week.
Brian has created an incredible foundation on which we will continue to build, and we look forward to celebrating him on May 19 for the countless ways he has contributed to the work God is doing here at Midcurrent.  Please mark your calendars, and plan to join us then to thank Brian for all he has done!
This transition leaves one main question, “What’s next?” Or maybe the better question is, “Who’s next?” And with that, we are beyond thrilled to finally be able to announce that Josh O’Meara will be joining our staff on May 20.
Josh will graduate in May from the University of Northwestern, in St. Paul, with a bachelors degree in music ministry, worship, and creative arts. In addition, Josh has been an engaging worship leader on campus and in various churches from California to Minnesota. We are confident Josh will excel in leading powerful worship experiences that contribute greatly to the spaces we create for real people and a real God to meet. And we can’t wait for you to meet Josh as well!
Looking forward to what God has in store for us in our next chapter together!
See you Sunday for Week 1 of our brand new message series through the Old Testament book of Jonah.
