That is a very true statement. Life came at us fast and our family is having to make some changes. We left Texas at the very end of 2020 and moved to Tennessee where I began serving as the youth minister at a congregation in Madison. Ten months later, the day before my 40th birthday no less, I was let go from that position.
We promised our children this would be our last move, that we’re in our permanent home, and we intend to keep that promise. You see, between my Air Force career and serving in ministry my daughter has had to move during the school year three times, and my son twice. This move was particularly hard on him. I have no desire to put my family through another move, especially when we haven’t been in our current house for even a year yet.
I’m not looking for another ministry position, for several reasons, but a big one is it would likely require us to move again. My long term goal is to work as a counselor/therapist, but I am in graduate school working on my education so I can eventually gain licensure to become a counselor. My only recent marketable skills are rather niche in nature being ministry, military intelligence, and aircraft maintenance. Any of my past computer technology and web development skills are out of date. So I am searching for non-clinical positions within the mental health field. I’ve been applying to intake coordinator, case manager, or similar positions in the areas surrounding White House, TN.
Please keep us in your prayers, thoughts, and vibes as we navigate this situation. And please let me know if you have any non-clinical mental health open positions. Thank you!
