MY BLOG NAME: Onward & Upward
This is a phrase I’ve used to end a lot of conversations. “Onward and Upward” reminds me that I am on a journey with Jesus and toward Jesus! He’s always been involved in my life, even when I didn’t know it. And he’s been encouraging, strengthening and calling me toward real life. I get glimpses of that from time to time. And I’m grateful when I do. I’d like to encourage you the same way. Wherever you are with God, I hope this blog can give you another foot-hold in the journey.
WHO I AM…
I’m Jim Renke. I have a supportive wife, Kris. We’re blessed with 4 sons and 3 great daughters-in-law. I’m grandpa. I am a senior pastor in a great church in Lincolnshire, IL. I love encouraging, teaching, motivating and equipping people. I get a thrill out of God’s Word. I’ve given up my hobby of motorcycles for now. My little Miata will have to suffice. I like pickleball, table games, reading and travel with my family. My life goal has always to been to be helpful and give people a picture of what could be. Let me know how I can encourage you!
