My wife, Tacy, and I both spent our early years in Starkville, Mississippi. We started dating in high school and were married after our sophomore year of college. We graduated from Mississippi State University in 1989 and moved to Kingsport, where we joined the Northeast Church of Christ, and I started my career with Eastman Chemical Company. We have three children, Gill, Shelby and Kendall, who have grown up attending Northeast. As part of my career with Eastman, my family has spent 3 years in Europe and 2 in Columbia, South Carolina but we’re happy to be back at home in Kingsport. We are so grateful for the love, attention and teaching that we and our children have received from the wonderful members of Northeast over the years. God has blessed us with a loving church family and we are privileged to serve as part of the Northeast congregation. My prayer for the church is for unity and maturity while helping each other to serve God.
