I was blessed to grow up in Pensacola, Florida with parents who daily demonstrated their love for God. I went to Harding University and met a wonderful girl from Alaska named Pam. I was more confident of our relationship destiny than she was. Patience won me a wonderful bride that I continue to delight in even after thirty years of marriage. God has blessed us with three children – Erika, Jon, and Saundra. We are indebted to all those who have helped influence their lives toward godliness. We have been at Northeast since 1991 and feel so blessed to be part of this body. It is an honor to be asked to serve as an elder. I’ll close with a verse that remains one of my favorites, “The eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth seeking to strengthen the hearts of those fully committed to Him.” My prayer is for us to join together in presenting lives that reflect God’s tremendous investment in us.
