HCR113: Colin Kaepernick and More!

In this 113th podcast of Healthy Church Radio, I team up with Shawn Curtis and Micah Fox to talk about two issues: Colin Kaepernick and his sitting during the national anthem, and what people look for in a church.

Shawn and Sara

Shawn Curtis is from Rochester, NY and joined the U.S. Navy shortly after his 18th birthday. Shawn married his best friend, Sara, when they were 19 years old. Since then, they have been blessed with six children: Kyle, Lydia, Owen, Jerusha, Jonathan, and Charles. They’ve been members of Antioch Community Church since February 2013, after moving to Durham, NC the previous year.

The Navy sent Shawn to Auburn University (War Eagle!), where he completed a B.S. in Chemistry in 2008. He spent most of the next several years attached to the nuclear ballistic missile submarine, USS NEVADA, home-ported in Bangor, WA, where Shawn served as the Assistant Engineer and Tactical Systems Officer. Shawn’s best day on the submarine was also his last at-sea, when his wife and father, Royce, were able to meet the submarine returning from a deployment and finish the ride home. That day, Shawn commanded the submarine from the sail and “landed” her for a final time upon return-to-port with Sara and Royce along to watch.
Now the Submarine Officer Instructor in the Department of Naval Science at UNC Chapel Hill, Shawn resigned his commission in August 2014, and now works for a software company in Durham, NC. To correspond with Shawn, please feel free to email him at shawn.curtis12@gmail.com.

Micah and Kari

Micah Fox was born and raised in the Burlington area and grew up attending Antioch Community Church. Micah married his best friend, Kari, on May 3, 2008 and they have been blessed with three sons, Blake, Seth and Owen, and one daughter, Liza! Kari is a wonderful wife, as well as mother to the boys. Micah received a B.A. in Communications from Thomas Edison State College, and began a Master of Arts in Religion with Southern Evangelical Seminary. He works in business development with North Star Marketing in Burlington, NC, providing marketing strategy, creative services and execution http://www.northstarmarketing.com

HCR107: Interview with David Clubb

Untitled

In this 107th podcast of Healthy Church Radio, I interview my friend David Clubb. I met David on the campus of what was then Elon College in the early 1990’s, had the privilege of teaching him public speaking, worshiping with him on the campus at what we called Elon Celebration, and officiating the ceremony when he married Shannon on June 30, 1995.

David and I talk about his position at Virginia Tech, overseeing the international student center, how he got involved in working with internationals, his family of 7, and his passion for reading good books from John Piper and others.

HCR100: South Africa Mission Trip

M & C

In this 100th podcast of Healthy Church Radio, I spend time talking with my favorite “guest” in the studio, my lovely wife of 33 years. We reflect on the recent mission trip we took to South Africa with 6 others, including our youngest daughter, Susanna. We talk about the value of short-term missions and why we should take our children along.
