Written on July 31, 2013 – 2:27 pm | by dave |

On Sunday night, I made a very major decision that I would not have imagined I would ever make. I turned in a resignation for my position as the lead teacher for the 3 Year Old Class at my home church. I have been teaching in the Children’s Ministry for almost 5 years (subtracting a […]

A Few Funny Moments in ESL

Written on June 23, 2011 – 9:36 am | by dave |

It has been a considerable amount of time since I have posted anything here. To be honest, the only reason is that I have simply been too busy to post to many places and I have not really had a lot of changes occurring on the ministry front. I am still available to consider ministry […]

Hello friends! I am excited to tell you that God has led me to a new ministry opportunity in my home church of Northwest Baptist Church, OKC. I have been working rather actively in the Children’s Ministry with the 3 year olds and that’s been fun but now a new ministry has been placed in […]

Changing Tides

It has been some time since I was able to update this blog with anything substantial and although I don’t like the fact that it happened, it was a necessary evil. Simply put, the world as I know it has been in a constant state of flux ever since I started this quest for ministry […]

August, the ‘work month’ has led to several things happening in my life both physical and spiritual. It is certainly the time of the year when things start getting busier. My child started Kindergarten, and I started seminary. But it doesn’t end there, read on. Seminary Starts Today marks my first day back to seminary […]

Adventures in church visitation

Now that the vacation time is over, I am in the process of trying to get back into some sense of balance. One of the first things I wanted to do now that I have had cool down time is to visit some local churches that are closer to us than our old home church […]

Written on June 10, 2010 – 2:18 pm | by dave |

As of June 4, 2010, I am no longer serving as a youth pastor for Agape Baptist Church. I actually made my public resignation on May 26, 2010 but set the end date to be June 4, 2010 because that would allow me time to easily transition the reigns to a new leader. What happens […]

I am Licensed!

This is a cool update that I can’t explain my excitement over. I officially received my licensure from the church on 2/14/10… Valentine’s Day! It seems only fitting that it was the same day that my daughter was dedicated at the church. We were a bit apprehensive about going to a small church but so […]
