Mike and Carrie Meisenheimer - February 2017
We are excited to share with you some big news! Over the last few months, our current Campus Outreach Greenville regional director Ben Creasman has decided that God is moving him out of full-time ministry and towards some new opportunities in the marketplace. In his place, I will step into a regional co-director role serving alongside one of our area directors Daniel Hill. While this is bittersweet to us personally as both Carrie and I have 17 years worth of friendship with Ben and his wife Kaye all the way back to college, we are also excited about the new opportunity for us to serve the Greenville region and staff team in a slightly new role. In my 13 years on staff with Campus Outreach Greenville, I have served in almost every possible role helping lead or direct everything from the administrative office and large events to campus ministry and our staff team. So, this step will not involve moving into anything I haven’t had experience thinking for but simply a step into thinking for the whole at all times. Both Carrie and I are extremely excited to be more hands-on with staff and students and to work alongside Daniel and his wife Lindsay and the rest of our current staff team.
To be more strategic in this new role, we are also planning to move our family to the Clemson area. This will place us within minutes of 2 of our campuses, Clemson and Southern Wesleyan, and almost half of the staff team. I will still commute to Greenville and Mitchell Road for meetings and some office hours but this will allow us to be a bigger part of these two campuses through attending weekly meetings and events, coaching staff members, or hosting staff and students in our home.
Thanks for letting us share this news with you. We ask that you would pray for all the logistics that will come along with a move—buying, selling, packing, and getting Copeland in school (K5) by the fall semester. We have full faith in our good Father that he will provide all of these needs when we need them but would love for you to be praying over the next few months as we figure all of that out.
Thankful for you!
Mike for Carrie, Copeland, Anna Cile, and Riggs
