Steve White Jumps Out of the Boat

Stepping out of the boat and keeping yours eyes on Jesus. This was my test of faith. My boat ? - Over 20 years in the aviation field and a solid career. Many asked - "Why are you getting out of the boat? It makes no sense!"

God has placed a desire on my heart for many years to be involved with ministry. I have enjoyed always being involved in some form or fashion as a volunteer in ministry. Since being involved with FCA Endurance, my desire is to be involved more and more in ministry - investing in relationships that ultimately point others to the truth and power of a relationship with Jesus Christ. As Paul states, not that I have obtained all this - not that I have any clue about how full time ministry works - but one thing I know that I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

For the past year or so, I had a little quote hanging up at my desk of my prior job. I do not know the author but here it is:

"Don't waste your life in a job that doesn't express your heart. Remember the greatest things in life are not things. Meaning is far more important than money.  The richest man in the world once said, "A simple life in the fear-of-God is better than a rich life with a ton of headaches." Aim .. for "the better life" - serving God in a way that expresses your heart. Figure out what you love to do - what God gave you a heart to do - then do it for His Glory."

So here I am, seeking to serve God and bring Him glory in a way that expresses my heart. Relationships! As you know, FCAE gives us an amazing opportunity to invest in others and build relationships from reading scripture together with a Teammate or talking with a complete stranger at the end of a race.

If you have read to this point, it is for you that I serve. My true hearts desire is that others will find the beauty of the relationship with Christ. It is also a strong desire that you will grow even deeper in your walk with God. Our daily relationship with God and our relationship with others.

Thank you for your prayers and support as my wife and I now walk this new paths for our lives! i hope to meet as many of you as I can in the upcoming years of ministry.

Your servant,
Steve White

Savannah, GA and the surrounding area is truly blessed of God to have such a dedicated man of God and his wife Leigh, who is equally strong in the Lord, to co-labor with the FCA Savannah Team Endurance ministry. May God bless you both in His work!

The New Testament has many examples of men, working men, established within their professions, who at the calling of Jesus, the Son of God, abandoned their secular work; laying down their tools.....and joined Christ for the most important journey of all mankind. Such is a beginning walk for Steve. It takes courage and commitment....but more important a love for the One who overcomes the world. quail sends
