Folks eating lunch together at CIC

Our 4th and final Church Involvement Conference is now history. Over 40 folks attended, listened, went to the break out groups, ate together and enjoyed the rich fellowship and content of the conference and the Widowhood Workshop.

Our goals were to promote involvement and to encourage churches to consider the Widowhood Workshop Ministry for their local congregation. Our (Athens) is in the process of starting it here. Five congregations showed great interest in WW.

If you wish to have all 12 lectures on CD, please contact the church office at 423 745 0554 or email me at The cost is only $10 including postage.

My retirement was announced this past Sunday. Deb and I will retire effective December 31, 2020.

Will I continue to do workshops and retreats? Yes! In fact, I’m available this year.

Will I continue to do emails? Yes! If you aren’t on my email list please contact me at

Will I continue to write articles for this website? Yes!

Our plans are to travel and be open to the Lord’s leading. We may work with smaller churches. But I would love to help churches get their members involved in ministry. Contact me if I can serve you in some way.
