Beside Every Good Man: Angie Blackson
You know saying, "Behind every great man is an even better woman?" It's a great saying, one I hope to live up to since I am married to a great man. But I think I picture myself beside my man, not behind him.
The men on lead staff at Elevation stand beside some truly great women. It is my privilege to lead them and know them and call them my friends. And I thought you should know them too.
Today, I would like to introduce you to Angie Blackson.
Josh and Angie have been married for 8 years. They have three beautiful blond-headed girls, Alyssa, Kaitlyn and Karis.
Angie and her husband were not on our original core team. Originating in Michigan, they moved around quite a bit until they ended up Charlotte for Josh's job and started attending Elevation in 2006. In 2008, Josh joined the Elevation staff as our Operations Pastor as well as our Providence Campus Pastor.
Josh and Angie love the outdoors and sports. They even play on an organized dodge ball team. The also love to exercise (I guess some do :)). In fact, in Angie's former pre-children, pre-ministry life she was an exercise therapist.
Angie stepped into her role as a campus pastor's wife as if she had been doing it for years. She is an incredible leader and she has a heart to know the people of Elevation. You can usually find her attending the Saturday night worship experience at our Matthews Campus and then at the 9:15 and 11 am worship experiences at Providence on Sundays.
I know Angie would love to meet you if you ever see her out and about at church. You can also follow her on her family blog here.
Here's a little video we showed to our Providence campus a few weeks ago about their family.
