Winning with People part II

Let's face it we can't make in life without people. Relationships are a gigantic part of our lives. I have been blessed with Godly people in my life. My wife Cassandra completes me because I have many weaknesses that she steps in and takes care of. I appreciate her heart for people and especially God. She is a great mother and friend. My children are special to me. They bring great joy in my life. I am grateful that they both have a relationship with Jesus. I was blessed to be brought up in a Godly home. My parents have worked in ministry all of their adult lives. They still are making a difference in the world for Christ. I am who I am because of their influence on me. I am grateful for my brother Tim and sister Jenn. They both love God and serve him in their local churches. I am grateful for friends like Carlton Bradshaw in Jacksonville, NC who helped start the youth ministry WOW with me in 1996. He is a great friend and has added value to my life. We still talk via the phone on a regular basis. What a talent and Godly man he is! I thank God for the impact Dr. Bob Horner had on me as a young businessman struggling with going into ministry. He gave me my first opportunity to preach. I am grateful to Lyndon Smith, one of the Godliest men I know who was a Man's man- a Marine and loved God and helped me in my ministry in NC! Barry Templeton was a great friend in NC also. I am thankful for Shay Thomas, my secretary @ PCBC for 3 years. She is a Godly person and has been a great friend to our family. What a prayer warrior she is. I miss Claire Mae Van Brink @ PCBC. She is the best preschool minister in the biz. She has a contagious personality and has been a great friend to me and Cassandra. Thanks to Mr. Kim Faucette who helped get the money from PCBC to allow me to start a church. I miss Joe and Cheryl Barron. Joe was my boss @ PCBC and a great person. They are big supporters who have made a difference in my family. I am grateful for Larry Bateman whose organiztional skills helped me as a singles minister. Thomas Hammond is a wildman. I have never met a person with the passion for leading people to Christ. He also would put me in my place when I needed it. That is a true friend. Jason Burns has been a great friend for years. I wouldn't have gotten the Bridge Church off the ground without him. Stuart and Miriam Delony made an unbelievable sacrifice to help us start the Bridge. They took no salary and worked their tails off! I can never repay them. Ryan Dean was the best worship leader I have ever seen. He is a great guy and I miss him. Russ Shoup and his family have been awesome friends. He is another former Marine I want with me. Rick and Susan Flannagan have been great friends to our family also. I am grateful for Brad (Soupie) Campbell and his work @ FBTC. He works above and beyond the call of duty. I learn a lot from him about relationships. Angela Davis is a great helper in our ministry too. Thanks for the website work and all you do in our ministry. John Morgan accepted me from the day I came. He has been a great friend. Brad Johnson and Andrew Clemmons are grately missed. They have so much talent. Anthony Martinez has been a great friend and mentor. Neal Elmore and Melanie Kennedy are growing in their servanthood and I appreciate them also. What can I say about Steve and Dana Harbin. They have bailed me out in more ways than I can say! Thanks! Guy and Karen Foster have helped greatly also. I miss Ken Nuss, he is a great friend and what a talent. I appreciate Joe Kennedy's passion for ministry. God will do a lot thru him. I appreciate Jerry and Chris Vice for being friends to our family. Thanks Chris, for being there for Cass. Carla and Tim Howell are awesome friends and we love them! Margret and John Keel will do anything in the world for you and for that I'm grateful. I know there are others who have changed my life for the better. I will have to add to this list. I am grateful to God for what a difference for the GOOD these people have made in my life!
