Letter from Senior Pastor, 
Mid-Atlantic Seaboard

Easter was my last Sunday at the church I served for three years. What began as a nightmare of a possible forced termination ended on a positive note. Instead of being voted out by a gang of disgruntled members, the deacons and I mutually negotiated a peaceful and amicable end to our more than three years of ministry together. In a reception given by the church, we celebrated our time of ministry together instead of parting in anger, frustration and despair.

What could have been a terrible ordeal for my family and me became something that will serve as a springboard for further ministry. When I was at my lowest, I was referred to Charles H. Chandler, Executive Director of MTM. With the looming possibility of losing my job, Charles was able to offer my wife and me a scholarship to attend MTM's Healthy Transitions Wellness Retreat for Ministers and Spouses.

It was during the retreat that my wife and I found a light at the end of a dark tunnel and a road map to wellness that has enabled us to thrive in adverse conditions. MTM continues to provide support during my transition.
