Get a Job… Pt. 2

OK… I did.

Thanks to God, I have finally been offered a job. After five months of searching and countless false leads and dead ends, God has opened a door and I intend to step through it.

Mission Health is a non-profit adult day care that specializes in Alzheimer’s patients (although the client list is much wider). The current Executive Director is stepping down on January 1. I have been offered this position. I have not officially signed the contract yet, but it’s the weekend now, followed by Christmas eve. I will probably turn it in after Christmas. I begin working Jan 1.

I’m sure I will have much more to say about the new position. It will be a steep learning curve for me, I’m sure. My job is almost completely administration. The health stuff is handled by the people who know how to do health stuff. I’m sure I will certainly lend a hand, but that will not be my main area. I handle human resource, fund-raising, marketing, board functions, etc. It will be a change from my usual music-centered job, but I am looking forward to it.

I will continue to pursue music. I don’t believe I have a choice in that. Some interesting things are beginning to crop up in that area. You probably read earlier that I had a chance to lead worship recently at New Life Church in Odessa. I am joining them again for a Christmas Eve service, along with some other players. I would say we have a definite “Eagles” sound. Should be lots of fun. And if God blesses us, at least a two of us may continue to play together doing the coffee house thing. But I will let you know more about that when it happens.

For now, Merry Christmas to all and God bless us everyone.


  1. >Congrats on the new job! I gotta say I never pictured you doing that sort of thing, but God has a sense of humor and sometimes puts us in the most unexpected places. I KNOW you can do a great job there.The New Life Church thing sounds interesting–and you’ll never go wrong with the Eagles. Dan
