My name is Billy and I'm so excited to start CIRCLES and grow together with all of you!
I'm sure Facebook could help with that :)
Aside from that, I would say a significant 'about me' is that about a year and a half ago, my life changed considerably. Upon graduating, my schedule slowed down and I realized I was in a terrible place with God. Combined with that, all of the "fact based, 'knowledge is power'" tone I had been hearing throughout college, caught up with me and I needed to go on a search of the existence of God. He satisfied my search about 4 pages into a book I was reading on God's existence.
Pretty much immediately after that, God began revealing to me an incredibly new and enlivening understanding of Him, His character, His desire to have an every-second continual relationship with me, and His desire for my career and life plans to be thrown away completely and relearned in Him. This past year has been awesome, difficult, sorrowful, joyful, excited, depressing, and between all of that emotion the Lord has been teaching me the importance and difficulty of disciplining ourselves to stay steadfast through valleys by holding onto Truth and continuing disciplines when things get trying.
I don't currently attend RockHarbor all that often (about 2 Sunday nights a month), but am excited to become a part of the high school or college ministry through CIRCLES. I am currently involved in the college/young adults ministry and attending church at Beachpoint Church in Fountain Valley.
I am currently working (and will be ending shortly) for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society doing fundraising development with them.
I hope to spend the majority of my working hours over the next 8 months doing CIRCLES, ministry @ Beachpoint church, and learning God. I'm sure a part-time job will also need to fit somewhere in there;)
Looking forward to meeting you guys this Saturday!
