Life is adventure! As you can imagine, the last few years of my life have been a transition period as I’ve learned how to live as a single man, moved from Alpharetta to Cumming and now to Chattanooga, finally retired and found new friends and relationships here in Tennessee. Face to Face is also in transition but the overall mission continues—share the love of God through words and deeds. No matter where you are in life, change happens and it’s better to embrace it than fear it. It is so easy to get into a routine in life that can become a box where you hide in comfort and security. I’m all for comfort but I’m also for finding your voice, hitting your stride, and doing what you were put on earth to do. In the famous words of Ferris Bueller, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it!”
When this Face to Face Missions site went live, it was the day after Christmas in San Juan, Puerto Rico where I was completing my federal government disaster assistance deployment. In January, 2018, I began a new phase of life when I retired. I was accepted in the Music for Healing and Transition Program. I've completed that program and I'm now a Certified Music Practitioner.
As we look to future work, we will continue to share the message of God’s relentless love and unlimited grace to bring hope and encouragement to so many people who have been through hard times in life. Whether it's putting a hammer to a nail, feeding a child, preaching a message or just giving a hug and a smile to someone who needs it, it's all sharing the Gospel because the Gospel, in a single word, is LOVE.
