We are the West Family and this blog tells the story of our journey to plant a church in Northwest London.
We (Thomas and Elizabeth) have been married almost 9 years and have the two cutest children in the world (Perry Elizabeth is 6 and Shepherd is 3). Raleigh, North Carolina has been our home for our whole married life and we love it. We both grew in Montgomery, Alabama. We started dating in high school and the rest is history.
After studying at Auburn University (War Eagle!) we moved to North Carolina for Thomas to pursue his Masters and then PhD at Southeastern Seminary. Thomas has served at our church, Providence Baptist Church, as the College then Discipleship Pastor for the last 7 years.
We recently finished our season of preparation in the States and moved to Northwest London. We are so excited about this adventure, but a bit scared as well. This is big! We built a team of people to pray with us, support us financially, and to even move with us to London. In the next couple of months we will engage in a process of learning more about London and finding some specific ways to serve our community. Eventually, we will see a newly formed church to care for the community, London, and the world.
We are building a team of supporters who want to invest in this journey in a variety of ways. We are excited to share our journey with you right here. We will be sharing family updates and the highs and lows of church planting weekly on the blog. Please subscribe and follow along!
We would love to have you partner with us in this journey! Read on and enjoy!
