GREAT news! Dave got the job he really, REALLY wanted.
He starts next Wednesday as Rescue Mission Manager for a large, non-profit organization called City Team Ministries.
He will be responsible for the overall operation of their Oakland Homeless shelter (they also have shelters in San Francisco, San Jose, Portland and Philadelphia) including the Drug and Alcohol Recovery components. This includes department planning, goal setting, and monitoring, organization of staff structure, personnel motivation, and client services. He will also be committed to discipleship and concerned for the spiritual welfare of all staff and clients; challenging them to grow in Christ. And yes, that was a copy and paste from the website, in case you couldn't tell... :)
Honestly, I don't know if the Lord could have created a more perfect job for him. It wraps ALL of Dave's work experience (church ministry and EMS/para-medicine), talents and passions into one. And God tied it with a big HUGE bow.
I am so proud of him. And thankful to a God who provides.
