I grew up in Irving, Texas and lived there until 2004, when Mary and I moved to the Colorado mountains to serve at a Christian camp for 5 years. We have now lived in Mansfield and attended PSBC for 8 years. I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior in 1969, at the film,“The Cross and the Switchblade.” Thanks to my parents, I got plugged into a great church and began to grow in my walk with Him. God has graciously provided solid Biblical teaching throughout my life. Mary and I will have been married 39 years this November. We have been blessed with two married sons and two grandchildren, who are a tremendous joy to us both. I have had the privilege to serve in a number of ministries, including 10 years in full-time ministry and as a deacon and an elder in prior years. It is an honor to be able to serve the Lord as an elder at PSBC.
