“Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” — Ephesians 5:20 ESV
We here at Aspen Group have many, many things to be grateful for—not just now in this Thanksgiving season but throughout the year. God has been good to us in 2019, connecting us with churches that are creating some amazing ministry opportunities in their communities.
No matter how high the high or low the low, it’s a comfort to know that God is ever present—not just aware but active in furthering His mission. As a company, we’re grateful for the unique role He’s allowed and equipped us to play.
Here are just a few of the things we’re thankful for:
1. Five Studios!
We're grateful to have five fantastic Project Development, Project Architect, and Project Management teams, along with a full design-build-furnish support staff, poised and ready to tackle more ministry projects in 2020.
2. Engaged, Mission-Focused, Values-Driven Team
The Aspen team continues to grow in number and alignment around our mission to create space for ministry impact. I am thrilled at the way new team members are attracted to the mission and bring such important gifts and talents to Aspen. I am so thankful for all the dedicated folks who pursue this mission daily and on every project!
3. Record Levels of Design and Construction Backlog
More and more clients are trusting us to help lead them through their important design-build-furnish projects. It’s a privilege to partner with churches in this way.
4. Continuing Growth in Our Ability to Engage in Healthy, Emotionally-Intelligent Ways
Our team has been focusing on candor, vulnerability, effective promise-keeping, cleaning up our “messes” and navigating highly complex working relationships and systems. We are making great strides!
It’s been a full and fast-paced year, and all of us at Aspen Group look forward to pausing from our work and giving thanks for how God has blessed us. We wish you the happiest of Thanksgiving holidays too, and we’re grateful for the chance to co-labor with you for the Kingdom.
