Well, this is my first blog. I am often told that I'm "full of it" or have the "spirit of gab" or have a "gift" to write.
So, several friends have suggested blogging. Here we go.
I haven't had a charmed life, but I have had a graced life. Sure there are hard knocks. All of us have those. I like to refer to them a "character builders".
I'm 43 years old and I've been married to my girlfriend for 23 years. Counting the couple of years we dated and we've spent most of our lives together. That in itself is a feat in our generation.
I've four awesome kids and a loving dog that is like my shadow when I'm home.
I have been pastoring for nearly 19 years. Then again, I was involved in ministry for five years prior to that in the roles of Youth Pastor, Children's Church Pastor, and Teacher / Mentor.
I've pastored in three cities. Rockingham, NC for 7 years. That was an incredible journey. We then were led to Charleston. We were there for eleven years and started Restoration Ministries. For the past 5 months we've been in Columbia, SC where I am the lead pastor at Crossroads World Outreach Center.
These past five months have been remarkable. I have seen God do SOOOOOOO much in people's lives that it makes the previous years seem like a blur.
I know the title of this blog sounds rather corny. But, dreams do come true. I feel I'm poised to accomplish some levels of destiny that for so long seemed so far away.
This adventure with Jesus is an amazing journey. He is REAL. He is RISEN. He is REIGNING. And, He is RETURNING.
Until then, He is making my dreams come true.
