My Resignation and New Beginning

September 5, 2011 — 4 Comments

Below you will find the letter written from 2xsalt concerning my resignation as pastor.
Below the letter you will find my response and next steps.

Dear 2xSalt/Salt Mine Body,
It is with sadness that I notify you that Pastor Steve Wright has submitted his resignation as the lead pastor for 2xSalt and the Salt Mine Church. I respectfully accepted his resignation effective immediately as of Sunday, September 4, 2011.

I want to thank Steve and Amy for their leadership, friendship, and season of service to our ministry and church over the past four years. I look forward to supporting and encouraging them and their family as the Lord leads and directs their call to impact His Kingdom.

Programs and services at 2xSalt and the Salt Mine will continue on Wednesday and Sunday at the regularly scheduled time and place at Jackson Park Ministries. Jackson Park is located at 5415 Airport Drive, Charlotte. Wednesday gathering is from 6:30- 7:30pm followed by homeless feeding uptown Charlotte around 7:45pm; Sunday service begins at 11:00am.

As the founder of 2xSalt and the Salt Mine Church and on behalf of our leadership team of Pastor Daryl Sutherland, Alan Barnes, Reggie Nious, Rodney Scott, and Ria Varnell, I ask for your prayers and continued support. With the recent damage to our building we are obviously facing many challenges, and although such disruption appears chaotic and untimely, God’s timing is always perfect.

We will continue to seek the Lord’s counsel as we rebuild and, restore the 2xSalt ministry, and move forward in obedience to Him.

Many blessings,
Bart Kofoed

Dear 2xsalt/Salt Mine Church/Friends/Family,
After much prayer and with a peaceful heart I offered my resignation to 2xsalt/The Salt Mine Church. It was accepted Sunday, September 4, 2011. The call to pastor in Charlotte still burns in our hearts and with the leading of God, Amy and I will continue to move forward with the direction the Lord has given us.

The name of our church will be Legacy Church Charlotte and will launch as soon as I find a meeting place. I hope to secure a place as early as Sunday the 11th of September. If you would like more information you can send me an email at

Finally, I would like to say thank you to 2xsalt and The Salt Mine Church for many wonderful memories and ministry opportunities to glorify God. My heart and prayers are with Bart Kofoed and the whole leadership team to fulfill all that God has called them to accomplish. May His grace, mercy and power move them forward in the mission.

Pastor Steve Wright

  1. Where are we going…Please keep me informed.

  2. Hi Steve,

    I’ll be praying for the new beginning! My heart is so much with you, especially as I myself just went through a new beginning, starting a new episode in my life with Jesus.
    He leads us on and on in His work through us, with us and in us.
