“I’VE BEEN ON A JOURNEY AND I’M NOT GOING TO MAKE ANY ASSUMPTIONS, THE PAST FOUR YEARS, GETTING A MASTER OF ARTS IN MINISTRY LEADERSHIP, STUDIED IN THE HOLY LAND FOR ABOUT A MONTH IN ISRAEL AND JORDAN AND ATTENDED A GREAT CHURCH IN NOVI. AND GOD PICKED ME UP BY THE COLLAR AND PUT ME ON THIS TRACK, IF YOU WOULD HAVE ASKED ME SIX YEARS AGO, WILL YOU CHANGE YOUR LIFE, GO TO SEMINARY, SELL YOUR HOUSE, MOVE TO A DIFFERENT PLACE, GET EVERYTHING OUT OF THE WAY AND THINK ABOUT LEAVING THE BEST JOB AT THE BEST STATION, THE NUMBER ONE NBC AFFILIATE IN THE NATION WITH THE BEST PEOPLE, DON’T MAKE ME CRY AGAIN, I WOULD HAVE SAID YOU’RE CRAZY, THIS IS JUST NOT RIGHT. AND THAT’S WHAT’S HAPPENING. I FEEL A CALLING, IS A GOOD THING TO SAY. SO IN THE MIDDLE OF AUGUST, I WILL BE LEAVING THE ANCHOR DESK, BUT NOT THE TELEVISION STATION AND I’LL GO TO WORK AT OAK POINT CHURCH AS A MINISTER OF OUTREACH.”
Wow, hearing this story really made me happy. You can hear the love and sincerity in his voice and compassion in his heart. Glad he answered to the call. If you are from the “D” you are probably smiling along with me.
