This post has been a long time coming... This week's eligible bachelor is a dear friend of ours and an excellent catch. When I heard Kelly was hosting another "Show Us Your Singles" day, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to introduce...
Bachelor of the Week #8:
If his smile hasn't already hooked you, let me tell you a little about this Virginia gentleman...
Born and raised in the south, but educated in Boston, this 29 year old is a perfect blend of down home manners and hospitality with a good dose of Northern pragmatism - especially when it comes to equality of the sexes etc. After receiving his undergraduate degree close to home, he attended Gordon-Conwell for a Master of Divinity and then Harvard University (yes, a Harvard grad ladies) where he earned his Master's of Theology. Today, he is living in Roanoke teaching online college courses in World Religion and Christian Theology, while also dabbling in insurance to "pay the bills." One day, he hopes to get his Ph.d and teach at a major university.
Impressive resume aside, his heart is first and foremost for Jesus. But, don't be intimidated... Beyond that, he enjoys playing the piano, writing music (but always forgetting the composition), distance running, reading, studying old languages (really, really old ones), watching plays and artistic movies, and writing. He is also a fantastic teacher and loyal friend --- I can say that with confidence from personal experience. :)
"Pastor Seth" is looking for a godly woman to share his passions, his ministry, and his life with. Specifically, he wants someone "who is passionate about her relationship with Jesus, and who approaches Him with a sense of mystery and reverence; A woman who gives definition to her community, but who is not defined by it; A woman who is not afraid to be weak, but who is not afraid to be strong either; A woman who can build sandcastles on the beach like a little girl, but who can navigate an international airport without anxiety; A woman who isn't bound by her past, and isn't afraid of her future; A bold and free-thinker: A cross between Scarlet in the red dress and Joan of Arc." (Can you tell he's a writer? And, a romantic?!?)
And, better yet, his ideal date is "a night sitting in front of the ocean with a bottle of red wine talking about ourselves, our ideas, and our art." Hooked yet?
Ladies, don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity! He is the kind-of guy we make lists about when we are in high school. ;) Email me right away if you are interested (firstname.lastname@example.org)... This offer won't last long!
