I'm glad to have been a part of Harrison Hills since October 2001. I've served in various ministries and positions since early 2002 such as providing administrative and managerial assistance to the pastor; a position which eventually evolved into the Technology Coordinator position I serve in today. I also lead and teach a small group and assist the worship ministry.
I was born and grew up in the Lanesville area where I attended Lanesville Community Schools graduating in 1978. I joined the US Air Force upon graduation, spending almost 24 years serving my country as an air defense radar technician. In 1993 I married Sherri, whom I met while she was also serving in the Air Force, but she originally hails from Northern Mississippi. We have four daughters, Kelly, Marianne, Haley, and Hannah and six grandchildren. I retired from the Air Force in October 2001 and moved back to my hometown of Lanesville, where most of my extended family still lives.
I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ, fully trusting Him in the fall of 1983, at the age of 23. I was ordained as a deacon in 1994 and am also an active Gideon. I spend much of my free time writing computer programs and working on the family farm, which sounds like work but I find relaxing.
