About retire2serve

Missionretire2serve exists to encourage individuals to use their retirement for significant service to God, and to encourage churches and faith-based organizations to facilitate this service.

Principal:  Jim Hughes

I launched retire2serve in May 2005.  I accepted early retirement from Texaco in 2002 and established Mapmaker Coaching, a Christian life coaching practice,  later that year.  Early on, I was struck by these facts:

Choosing to use retirement years to serve is not a new idea, but it is an idea that has not yet come into the mainstream. 

My goal with retire2serve is to reach the larger audience of regular folks who in retirement have the option of choosing to serve.
