Quite the Honor

April 24, 2008

My good friend and co-worker and church going buddy, David Busey, decided to honor my departure from the Sales world by painting his toenails blue & orange (since I’m an Auburn freak).

David needs professional help.

The God Story (much abbreviated)

April 24, 2008

I had this long, elaborate post ready to put on the blog…all describing my journey up to this point…and how I’ve arrived at becoming Family Pastor of OLC. Then I realized I wrote a book. And I never read long posts, so why would I expect you to do the same? So I’ve cut out 42,617 details and shortened it to a few brief sentences.

Through God’s Providence, moved to Cartersville in 2005.

Have been involved in ministry (mostly bivocational) for 13 years.

A buddy from out of state emailed me b/c he ran across something online mentioning some guy named Michael who was going to plant a church.

I met with Michael at Rafferty’s the next day.

Dana and I became part of the launch team. (Not THIS kind of launch.)

At that time, our kids made up 1/2 the children’s ministry!

We’ve served and volunteered, mostly in the children’s area.

Over the past 6 months, God finally got my attention enough to show me why he put Dana and I together – to dedicate our lives in Ministry toward kids. (Only took 8 years of marriage to figure that out!)

Never thought I’d have a strong desire to work with kids. Now, I can’t get enough of it.

I’m very very (as in very) EXCITED about leading this ministry.

For the rest of the story, come see me at OLC on Sunday mornings.
(Be sure to arrive at 6am for setup.) 🙂

Plug for the ministry my wife is involved in. LINK
Spent 4.5 years in THIS city.
I think THIS is funny.
