Pastor Talmadge wants this for his eulogy: He Loved God, he loved his family, and he loved people.

In the past Talmadge has served in many churches and on a couple of continents as Minister of Music. For the last ten years, God has continually moved him into more pastoral roles, even as he was completely unaware of what God was doing.

First in 2004 God led him to teach at-risk teens at the Forest Park Street School in Forest Park, Georgia near Atlanta. That was the most fulfilling ministry in which he had ever served. But God had much more in store... but it required a significant shift in location.

It was then "up North" to Fergus Falls, Minnesota, and into the Jail Ministry there. He often says that the jail was his second favorite place in town: Home - Jail - Church! Yes, that's a bit strange...but everywhere the Believer goes, he carries the church there, because we Believers ARE the Church. 

In January 2013, God called us to Aberdeen, South Dakota, to the Church of the Nazarene. We arrived in June 2013 and are so blessed to be here, seeking where God is already working and desiring to join Him. What a great opportunity!

And the next blessing is ..... (to be continued)!
