Pat and I are blessed with twin girls Sarah and Rachel. Sarah was active in the campus ministry at Gainesville, Florida until her graduation from the University of Florida in December 2006. She moved to Philadelphia to work with HOPE Worldwide for a year and then moved to State College, PA. to help plant the church and work with the campus ministry at Penn State University. Rachel was active in the campus ministry in South Florida until her graduation from Florida International University in May 2006. She is married to Rodrigo Acosta and lives in Miami, Fl. where they lead the youth ministry in the South Dade Region of the church. Rodrigo serves as an intern for the church and Rachel works for the University of Miami.
We are humbled when we think of what God has done in our lives and in the churches during the last 35 years. We have been able to be a part of the growth of a movement that began in campus ministries in the USA and grew to plant churches all over the world. God has given us friendships that will last forever. We have experienced great personal victories and victories in the churches. With those triumphs, we have experienced the loving discipline of the Lord. I believe that the best times are ahead of us, individually and as a people of God. Pat and I have been, and always will be, committed to helping people build relationships with God based on his Word, prayer and obedience so that the church can reflect the joy and glory of God. We have come this far by God’s mercy and grace, and by that mercy we will go all the way home. May each of us say, along with our brother Paul,“But by the grace of God I am what I am…”(1 Corinthians 15:10)
