On June 14, 2002, David Shore, and his wife Wendy, made their home in Venice. He arrived at the end of season but the activities of the church continued with camps, VBS, Bible Study, Mens and Womens Ministries. He jumped right in and was able to discern the fabric of the church. He, along with our Board, developed a new mission statement: We will encourage and enable people to know, worship and serve God. Daves strong ability to formulate ideas and bring them before our Board and church family proved to be an effective tool that brought about new discipleship classes, prayer time with staff and their ministries and a desire to serve and worship God in many different ways. He loved to present Membership and Leadership classes to our church family. He knew and understood that these two elements were an important aspect in church growth. It soon became apparent of a need to reach out to the needy of our community, to enable them and encourage them to know our great God. With much prayer and Gods direction, we started Manna Ministry, Food for the Soul and Body.
The Church Board, along with Daves leadership has brought our church through a difficult economy, following Gods lead and our faith in God to make paying our district budgets a priority and at the same time, keeping our church financially stable.
Daves ability to give evangelistic sermons each Sunday provided us with a time to grow and also allowed us to see his humorous side, his background and growth in Christ and hope and knowledge that God loves us even in our lowest and highest of times.
On a personal note, his love for his wife, of baseball, singing in the Choir, and his two Chihuahuas (Chico and Chummy) are always a joy to hear about. He is loved and will be greatly missed. We are excited that he has followed Christs lead and wish him and his family a life of blessings as he journeys to Olathe, Kansas on Sunday, September 15, 2013.
(Thanks to Wendy Parker for this tribute to the Florida Shores. Dave and Wendy will be greatly missed on the district, but we will reap the results of their labors for many years! Thank you Dave & Wendy! You are loved!)
