Retreat Speaker: Jim Moon

“You say you want to be whole, you say you want to be pure, you want to stand tall, and you want to endure… than more broken…” This is the line from a recent song by Jim. Through his beautiful wife Ingrid and three children, Jay Jay, Maggie Lynn, Sam… Jim has realized in deeper ways his own vulnerability and brokenness as a husband and father. He has also come to see over and over again God grace toward him in spite of his insecurity and weakness… How His Father in heaven delights in each one of us and would have us to “talk and act as if our faith was invincible” (Christ Object Lessons p. 146), because His power is made perfect through our weakness and His beauty is revealed through our brokenness.

Currently Jim is serving as Worship Pastor at the Collegedale Seventh-day Adventist Church and working on a Doctor of Ministry degree from Andrews University in Biblical Spirituality and Discipleship. The focus of His project is Missional Prayer: How to effectively listen to people and pray with them. His passions are worship leading, song-writing, prayer, shooting hoops with his kids, hiking, and listening to people’s stories. He has also released a CD of Prayer and Praise Songs entitled Consume Me.
