I became a believer as a child, but didn’t really start growing up in Christ until shortly before my senior year of high school. I became acquainted with a youth director who introduced me to the challenges of having a daily quiet time with God (Bible reading, prayer, meditation), memorizing scripture, getting involved in serving others, and being committed to walking the walk instead of just talking the talk. It changed the direction of my life.
I married my high school sweetheart—the source of much joy and blessing. We are blessed with two wonderful children, a boy and a girl, who love and follow the Lord and are teaching their children to follow Him as well. We are so proud of all of them.
I began a new career and ministry challenge in my current position as Business Administrator at the church. I am finding it an opportunity to use my business experience, aptitudes and spiritual gifts in exciting new ways. I’m also enjoying the learning and the fellowship.
