​                                   JIM'S HOME FOR MEN

SOJOURNER'S JOURNEY

HELLO EVERYONE,

                 MY NAME IS SPENCER AND I'M 48 YEARS OLD. I LIVE IN SPARTA WITH MY AMAZING WIFE KELLY. WE HAVE BEEN MARRIED NOW FOR 6 YEARS AND WE HAVE A BLENDED FAMILY OF 6 CHILDREN, ALL GROWN. WE HAVE 5 GRANDCHILDREN.

                 I'M VERY EXCITED FOR THE OPPORTUNITY THAT KATIE AND THE BOARD OF DIRECTOR'S HAVE GIVEN ME AND THE MEN WE WILL ENCOUNTER ON THIS EXCITING JOURNEY. ALTHOUGH I'M SURE THE JOURNEY WILL HAVE MANY UPS AND DOWNS, I BELIEVE THAT GOD WILL SHOW HIS AMAZING GRACE TO THESE MEN AS HE HAS SHOWN SO MUCH TO ALL OF US. PLEASE BE IN PRAYER FOR THIS EXCITING NEW ADDITION TO SOJOURNER'S JOURNEY. 

               MY GOAL IS TO OPEN THIS MEN'S HOUSE FOR MEN WHO HAVE BEEN INCARCERATED AND ARE WANTING TO TRANSFORM THEIR LIVES WITH THE DIRECTION OF GOD'S WORD. BY CREATING AN ENVIRONMENT THAT IS SOLELY BASED ON THE GUIDELINES FROM THE WORD OF GOD. HELP GUIDE AND MENTOR MEN TO TRANSFORM THEIR LIVES FROM THE MEN THEY USED TO BE TO THE MEN THAT GOD WANTS THEM TO BE.

                 MEN WHO HAVE BEEN INCARCERATED AND WANT TO CHANGE THEIR LIVES, HAVE A HIGHER CHANCE OF SUCCESS WHEN A NEW ENVIRONMENT IS CREATED. I WANT TO HELP AND GUIDE THEM THROUGH THIS PROCESS BY BEING A MENTOR, PROVIDING HOUSING AND TEACHING THESE MEN WHAT IT MEANS TO BE THE MAN THAT GOD MEANT US TO BE. HELPING THEM FORM RELATIONSHIPS IN THE CHURCH AND THE COMMUNITY THEY LIVE IN. I TRULY BELIEVE THAT A MAN SHOULD LOVE CHRIST MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE. THROUGH THIS LOVE, LIVES ARE TRANSFORMED. NOT ONLY THE LIVES OF THESE MEN, BUT THE LIVES THAT THEY ENCOUNTER FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES.

                  I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO ACHIEVING OUR GOALS AND GETTING STARTED. PLEASE BE IN PRAYER FOR ALL OF US HERE AT SOJOURNER'S JOURNEY, AND PLEASE ALSO PRAYERFULLY CONSIDER SUPPORTING US FINANCIALLY. 

                                                                                                            SPENCER
