11 Things Small Business And Fire Departments Should Have In Common http://www.virtualmusicoffice.com/11-things-small-business-and-fire-departments-should-have-in-common/
“To move from poverty to middle class or middle class to wealth, an individual must give up relationships for achievement (at least for some period of time). The issue is time; there is not enough time to have both.”
― Ruby K. Payne, A Framework for Understanding Poverty 5th Edition

Hey band….. someone asked…. so to be clear, the banquet is for immediate FAMILIES, not just band members.
Did I miss the memo or something? I guess I’ll show up for work Monday and find out. http://ow.ly/i/dXeOs
Both our sons have had significant promotions/job changes this year. More about David’s promotion to Cluster Dean at Andover.edu in another post.
Today is Day 1 for son John at his new job as Worship Pastor of First Baptist, Powell, TN, where he will join 5 other pastors, 5 ministry directors and a support staff of 12+. His kids are excited that his new office is close to the church’s playground.
He was at Stevens Street Church in Cookeville for 15 years, including his undergrad college time, during which he experienced a church grow from two services to three — move into a new facility and still have two morning services. While there, he started their worship orchestra (now regularly includes 20+ instrumentalists) and also started and oversaw their successful School of Performing Arts. For the past year or so he has also been their choir director and worship coordinator. All this while continuing his seminary education and playing in a professional brass band.
FBC Powell includes a Classical Christian School where John & Laurie’s three kids will attend (as part of his pastoral package) and has a deaf ministry that will offer much for them and their two daughters.
When I asked about membership/attendance, he told me about their several campuses. Rather than continue to build (you can see numerous additions to the original building) or add services, they are very active in revitalizations; where they find a struggling church, send members and financially support that church until it is standing strong. During that revitalization, they count that attendance as part of their own. Recently, they sent 300 of their members to such a church in their area.
John & Laurie were able to sell their house without listing it, and to purchase an empty house, just a couple of many demonstrations of the Lord’s work in this entire process. While they wait to close on their house (walking distance from the church), the family is staying in one of several of what the church calls their “mission houses”, used for guests, missionaries — and incoming pastor families.
From both the Cookeville members sending him off and the Powell members welcoming him, it sounds like he is equipped and supported to continue to grow worship ministry wherever he is.
Ninteen years ago, on Sunday evening, September 22, 1996, our good friends, church family and business partners Max and Barbara Garwood and Joan and I with our two sons, were attending the third and final evening of church revival services. The Garwoods were noticeably distraught at the end of the service as they left quickly to find out why their three children, who were leaving the house right behind them to go to the church…..never showed up. It was just a few minutes later when I received Max’s panicky call telling me that he was on his way to the hospital for one of his sons – and asking me to call the Sheriff to find out the whereabouts of his other son and daughter.
Wayne, Eva and Marquis were traveling down one of our country roads (a little over a mile from their home) when a car (the high corn prevented either car from seeing the other) ran a yield sign and broadsided the Garwoods’ Accord. Wayne and Eva were killed instantly and Marquis was thrown from the car. Marquis survived, but struggled for years with migraines and other accident-related issues. Now, in 2014, he is happily married and has a beautiful baby son.
I remember talking to a software customer the day after we put a message on our business phone system explaining why we were closed for a couple days. The comment went something like:
I was a little upset as I was dialing your number because I had this software issue….. but then when I heard your message, all I could do was cry. It made me remember a phrase from somewhere….’the problem is real, but remember that nobody’s dying here’.
Our older son and Eva were both 16 and close friends. John would be 18 before he expressed interest in getting his driver’s license. John is now happily married with three children.
Most QDP customers don’t know Max and Barbara Garwood because they haven’t been involved in the day-to-day operations at QDP since even before 1996. Max was the original programmer for the DOS version of Ultra that we designed back in 1984, just as Microsoft® was releasing PC-DOS (Disk Operating System) for the new concept of Personal Computers.
For several years, we passed daily the two small crosses planted at the crash site. I promised the Garwoods in 1996 that we would “never forget”….so thanks for your understanding and reading as we remember our friends, church family and business partners.
