New Season Upcoming for The Tebbe’s

For several years now I’ve been serving as a Frontier Leader and Coach with 3dm (

3dm’s vision statement is:

Changing the world, by changing America, by changing the church, by training leaders to put discipleship and mission back into the hands of ordinary people.

If you’re not familiar with 3dm I encourage you to check out their website.

Over the last 6 months or so I’ve discerned with the leadership at River Valley Church and 3dm that God is calling our family to take on an expanded role in training and equipping local church leaders in discipleship and mission. We will transition out of River Valley in December and move to Pawleys Island, SC  to be a part of the 3dm team!

It is a bittersweet season: we have life-long friends and co-laborers in ministry in Mishawaka that we will dearly miss. As always in these circumstances, we are excited to go and sad to leave. The amount of work God has done in our lives through this discernment is immeasurable: refining identity, clarifying calling, building faith, speaking words of blessing, challenge, and trust.

We are excited about the new season God has called us to with 3dm and hope-filled that God has incredible plans for River Valley in the future.

We tell Deacon every night “God has created you for love, joy, adventure, and relationship”.

Well – here’s an adventure, Deacon. Get ready, boy. Get ready.
