some kind of mission statement

Helping grow the body of Christ

I’m a creative wanderer, a nomad of sorts, one who was required to move from place to place while serving in the military years ago. Later, I became the one who became the encourager for my wife as she pursued her career in the Air Force. Those are both events from what seems like long ago.

Lots of change, new faces, new venues, the same Gospel, learned much, learning still.

We moved to Anderson SC in 2014 but didn’t decide to live in Anderson until 2017. That’s significant for a nomad. Most simply answer the question about where they’re from, but for me, it’s not quite so easy.

I’m blessed to work from home where I support various local ministries and Healthy Growing Leaders.

My earnest desire is to make disciples that make disciples, to teach others to love like Christ loved, to enjoy time studying the Bible and to encourage others to do the same. My hope is to support local missionaries and those abroad.

There is much to do. So many opportunities to serve our community. I’m still learning.

My wife of 31+ years, Zoë Hale, and I are working to help others on the other side of town AND help those who want to help others. Take a look at My Resource Guide to see what we’re up to.

Covid-19 Prayer

Our Heavenly Father, we acknowledge you as the mighty God, creator of earth, ruler of all that is, all that was, and all that will be. With your help, Lord, when this pandemic is over, we will be a better people because you sent us to our rooms to re-learn what family is all about. …

Sea of Words

Before me lies a sea of words which ones to choose, said I, the words of a sweet lullaby or words that would make you cry? In these days, we’re tempted, true, to turn away our gaze on you, but let me be the one who stays, who remembers the countless ways you’ve saved us …

Not So With You

One of my favorite verses in Scripture is from Matthew’s incredible account of Jesus’ response to a mother’s request. The mother of the Zebedee sons (James and John), later identified as Salome*, has one favor to ask of Jesus: Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked …
