Message from Christian City Children's Village COO
Hello to all my friends and colleagues past and present!
It is with a heart full of emotion that I share my latest news with you, and ask for your prayers as I have answered God’s call to another season & reason in my life after these past 40 years of service in the field of child abuse, child abandonment, and child welfare.
The last 12 years have been a great blessing to me, as I have had the privilege to serve at Christian City Children’s Village as the Chief Operating Officer working with an incredible administration and Children’s Village staff. My last working day at Christian City will be April 20, 2018.
I’m pleased to announce that I have been honored with the “call” to the position of Senior Minister with First Christian Church, Stockbridge, GA. Marcia and I are excited, humbled and grateful for this opportunity which will begin May 6, 2018.
It’s a “full circle” for us, as we began our marriage and service to God in 1966, and are now returning to the pulpit to serve HIM once again in the located church ministry. Our First Christian Church-Stockbridge family is a loving, dedicated and supportive congregation who has welcomed us with open arms and hearts. It’s a great feeling that God has led us “home” there!!!
I also want to take this opportunity to say thank you to EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU who have been on this child welfare journey with me these past 40 years. I am SO grateful to have been a part of an intentional effort to help "children of need" and their families. I admire each-and-every one of you for your efforts, commitment, and determination to end the cycle of child abuse. Keep up your great work and keep pressing forward so that we can prayerfully see that every child is afforded a happy, safe, and productive childhood…which every child deserves!
I know if I tried to name names to say, “thank you” to, that I would miss someone and I do not want that to happen. So, to each of you, I say, "God Bless YOU and your work" !!!
If you are ever in the south metro Atlanta area over a Sunday, stop in and worship with us at First Christian Church Stockbridge (102 Valley Hill Rd, Stockbridge, GA)
