I'm from Decatur. I graduated Lincoln Christian College. I was a youth minister and minister of education at Fisher Church of Christ. I married Theresa and we had two boys.
I went to work as a chaplain for Christian Homes. I ended up staying with that company almost 25 years, serving as an administrator, the regional operations director, and finally as a vice-president.
I enjoy Christian service because I saw what my dad's conversion did for the family, the positive changes that made. It brought stability and clear values to our family when I was a boy. If I can help others to have that kind of stability, it will be a worthwhile effort.
I continue to live in Decatur with my wife. I've been a member of Northwest Christian Church most of my life. I get to spend time with my grandkids, and I love that.
