I am currently courting a godly woman whom I metonline in June of 2004. God has truly blessed me with a wonderfulrelationship with her. May God richly bless you as you seek His will.
It's mydesire that the defining characteristic of my life would be absolute, unconditional, irrevocable, and undying commitment to our Lord and Savior JesusChrist.
I was ayouth pastor for many years but resigned as I went through divorce in 2002. I amcurrently managing a retail store but am seeking God's direction as I seektoreturn to vocational youth ministry.
I live in the North Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area. The"tourist" description of our area is "where the wine countrymeets the redwoods. "
IAM "INTO" THE FOLLOWING THINGS:
-->WALKING WITH GOD- my relationship with God is the foundation of my life -- I trusted Christ asSavior as a high school student at a summer camp, and my life has never been thesame since that day! I strive to spend time with God daily and to let Him moldme more and more into the image of His Son Jesus Christ. I also strive to walkin obedience and submission to Him and His Word each day.
-->MINISTRY- there is no greater thrill than to be used of God to make a difference in thelife of another person -- I'm especially fond of working with teens as they tendto be more receptive to ministry as the "clay" of their lives has nothardened yet. I am currently volunteering in the college and singles ministriesat my church--I lead worship in both groups and do a variety of other things tominister in that capacity.
-->MUSIC- I love to play my guitar and sing songs of worship and adoration to ourWonderful Savior. I am passionate about worship, and I am especially passionateabout leading others to the Throne of Grace through worshipping Him in song. Ialso love to listen to good Christian music (like Steven Curtis Chapman, CastingCrowns, Caedmon's Call, FFH, Point of Grace, 4 Him, PFR, Jeremy Camp, MichaelCard, DC Talk, Steve Green, etc. ).
-->FELLOWSHIP- I love to be with my brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ and to enjoy theoneness--the koinonia--that we share as fellow members of the body of Christ. This is something completely and totally foreign to the world, and I do not knowhow I would live without it!!!!
-->SPORTS- I love to play golf & basketball (I play basketball every Monday night andgolf as often as I can), and I am a fan of basketball (the Warriors), football(the 49ers), baseball (the Giants), and golf (I root for anyone not namedTiger--there's just something beautiful about seeing the underdog win).
-->ANIMALS- I currently own a chocolate-colored lab mix named "Hershey" (she'sthe brown-eyed beauty with me in the second picture) and a 29 gallon freshwaterfish tank swarming with tropical fish.
-->COMPUTER / TECHNO STUFF- I have been accurately called a computer nerd on more than one occasion, and Ihave almost never seen a gadget that I didn't like :-) Some of my currentgadgets include a Sony CLIE PDA, 2 Macintosh computers (1laptop & 1desktop), digital camera, camera cell phone, shower cd player, dvd player, SonyPS2, etc. . . . . .
-->READING- I love to read. In my younger years I read every sci-fi / fantasy tome I couldput my hands on, but now only have time for occasional novels (it's too easy toget wrapped up in a captivating novel to the exclusion of other things). Itypically have a few books related to theology and/or Christian living that I'mworking through at any given time.
"Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe. " (I Timothy 4:12)
