Thank you, Salvus Center

The Salvus Center is a Sumner County non-profit inspired by the Biblical mandate to care for the sick and the needy. I have been an advocate for this ministry since its 2004 inception, serving on the Board of Directors since 2014 and as Board Chair since 2019.

July 1 means my term is up, but my enthusiasm for the mission remains! While I will not be part of the legal oversight, my heart is still with the patients and staff, and I believe in our President, Jennifer Flanagan. I am so grateful for the outstanding leaders I have met through this organization, and they have my support going forward.

Thank you, Salvus Center, for an inspiring mission and a great future in health care.

Christ, the center of our ideas

We live in an era like none other, with a constant exchange of ideas. We are all commentators, authors, newscasters, and influencers. This free flow of thought is good, exhilarating, and liberating.

It is more important than ever to identify a center in which the solar system of your ideas revolves. I have found that in Jesus Christ, revealed in Scripture and affirmed by centuries of proven faith.

Venture is here!

I am proud of our Venture family conference and anticipate great things Sunday-Tuesday. A few years ago, our team decided to revamp the traditional VBS experience to provide a family event. We do VBS for the kids and training for the parents, so it is a combined family experience.

Pastor Aubrey McGowan leads this endeavor, and children’s pastor Faith Hannula, and staff member, Cori Fuller, have been partnering with him for months to create this experience.

There is still room! You may not get all the Venture swag since the deadline has passed, but you will still get the essential things – inspiration, information, and vision for your family.

Register right now!

Sumner Summit for Men NEXT WEEK!

I love all Jacob Bell has offered the CIL Men since joining our staff, and I share his enthusiasm for a new opportunity. Sumner Summit is a gathering for men looking to engage in truth, community, and service. We have invited community leaders to speak on topics about the neighborhood, including “Serving through Food,” “Racial Healing in Sumner County,” and “Speaking Our Faith in the Workplace.”

Guys, don’t take men’s ministry for granted. Prioritize this night, and register today.
