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.
