Moving to SC

It is with joy as well as sadness to announce that the Reeder family is relocating to Greenville South Carolina. Saying goodbye will be difficult as we will miss everyone dearly. Although leaving our friends will be hard, we are joyful over the kind providence of Christ in making this necessary transition possible. As some of you know, we have been contemplating this move for several years. The role I serve for my employer is a national role and therefore I am not required to work from any particular office nationwide; however, my direct reports are in Charlotte and I work closely with the teams that are there, so it is advantageous that I be close to that office. Kara and I began to actively engage in the relocation process back in January, but it was not until last week that I received the final approval. I will be working from a home office four days per week and working from Charlotte every Monday. Kara and I will be married for ten years this coming May. We have lived in three different states and six different residences in that time frame. We desire, if the Lord wills, to settle more permanently. In addition to being close to Charlotte, Greenville was chosen for many reasons - primarily for its close proximity to the theological seminary, the resulting educational opportunities as well as the ensuing ministries, conferences, and churches. The transition from urban to a more rural geographic was also sought with a permanent residence in mind as we have spent the last ten years working in and living near major cities. And as an added bonus, Greenville is also a prominent cycling hub hosting national championships as well as many professional teams who reside there for training.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further clarification or with any questions. The projected date for the move will be by the end of May. Over these next 60 days we will be spending multiple weekends in South Carolina preparing for this transition. This coming weekend will be one of those weekends. We ask that you continue to petition our Father on our behalf during this time.
