For the past 9 years I have had the privilege of calling beatiful Greenville, North Carolina home. Eastern North Carolina is a special place. I am reminded daily of why people from all across the country make their way here for vacations every year. The natural beauty and unique coastal living combined with the kind hearted and loving population makes this area so very special.
I do call Greenville ‘home’ because I have lived here longer than anywhere else in my life. It is where I went to college, it’s where I met Rachel, it’s where we adopted Bodie, it’s where we bought our first house, and it’s where Daniel was born.
Greenville is also close to my family located throughout Eastern, NC – but I have two extended families here as well.
First – My Discovery Church family who adopted me over 8 years ago. We have laughed, cried, and celebrated God’s goodness as we’ve navigated life’s often difficult road. It is almost difficult to even comprehend all of the lives that I have seen impacted by Discovery these past 8 years. Every person who has been a part of the Discovery family over the years has had a significant impact on my life.
Second – My WNCT-TV family. The past few days have reminded me of the unique bond that is created amongst newsers. I think it is something about the crazy hours, extreme work environments, and endless deadlines that forms this special bond. It is a tough industry to work in because of the revolving door of people that pass through as they work to move beyond living under the poverty line by moving up a few markets. Over the past five years I have met some incredible people… many of which are working in top 25 markets having a major impact and are doing big things. I have learned so much over the years from these fine people. From the power of good writing to how to survive standing in the middle of a hurricane… these are all life lessons that I will draw from for the rest of my life.
Over the past few months our family has had an unexpected and exciting opportunity come up. Rachel and I have been talking with a great church in Odessa, Texas called Crossroads Fellowship about an opportunity that would allow me to combine my love of live event production and the local church into a new career.
After flying down and meeting with the incredible team there… We fell in love with the church and the people of West Texas. So we made the difficult but exciting decision to join the Crossroads Team. I’ll start my new role as Multi-site Broadcast Production Manager on October 1st.
With that date quickly approaching… our time in Greenville is quickly coming to a close. Mine and Rachel’s last day at work is September 11th, and that next week will start the move out west.
It has been a very emotional period as we have reflected on these great years here in Greenville, but we are trusting as God leads our family to Texas.
We have enlisted the help of our friends at the Homer Tyre Group in helping us make the transition by selling our house here in Greenville. Please share our listing with anyone who may be looking at purchasing a home in the Greenville area!
