Dear Family, Friends & Community Members,

Recently, I was blessed to graduate from Liberty University’s SACSCOC accredited Doctor of Christian Leadership Program concentrating in Digital Discipleship. Furthermore, I also have been accepted into Liberty University’s Helms School of Government Public Administration program.

My goal is to continue operating TechReady Professionals, while preparing for the opportunity to teach as a college professor and preach as an ordained pastor. Liberty’s curriculum is built for the working professional, allowing me to teach in higher education and preach in ministry.

I wanted to provide you with formal notification of these life events, as it may result in a change of my availability, specifically with my volunteer commitments and community activities.

At the current time, I intend to continue my current responsibilities as a member of my community groups as well as serving in my capacity as Mayor of New Bethlehem. However, as I will be required to author/publish a book (otherwise known as a dissertation), this will consume a significant portion of my time and focus.

Graduate school will also be a very significant financial investment that will come completely out-of-pocket, thus limiting my ability to make as many donations of time, money and other resources. My work hours will increase in order to cover tuition costs, further limiting my active participation in volunteer activities.

Conclusively, over the next several years, my focus will be on furthering my education, while operating my business. I will do my best to balance my current volunteer duties as a participating member of various community groups, however I may need to ‘reevaluate’ my workload in the future.

Thank you for time, understanding and support, as I embark on this momentous journey.
