My wife, Brenda and I have known each other since the 4th grade, 9 years old. We graduated high school together and married shortly thereafter (I don’t recommend that for everyone).
I served in the United States Air Force for 7 1/2 years traveling all over the world. Abilene, TX, Dyess AFB was where I was stationed most of my Air Force career. We surrendered our lives to the Lord at Trinity Baptist Church in Abilene, TX, Bro. Howard Ingram, pastor.
We have now been married for 45 years. We have 2 boys, Les and James. 5 grandsons and 2 granddaughters.
Wilson Creek Baptist is my first pastorate out of Bible College and we have been there 33 years as of June 2017. We have spent over half of our lives at Wilson Creek Baptist Church, which I think is a great thing. We have been serving the Lord together for 42 years.
We have gone through 3 building programs and the Lord has blessed in all of those endeavors. The church is 89 years old in May 2017.
Our church has been able to plant 5 other churches in these last 33 years.
