About Me

I am the Pastor/Teacher of Rivers of Joy Baptist Church in Minford, Ohio since August 2008.  I am married to Charity since June 14, 1969.  I have four grown children.   Having served in the local church for over forty years as Pastor/Teacher, Asso., Youth Pastor, Minister of Education, Building Upkeep, Camp Director, Sunday School Teacher, etc. Also I have worked in the public place for as many years as I have preached. Charity and her sister are co owner of Union Mills Conf. (Bakery) in West Portsmouth Ohio


The old gospel tent meetings were a part of my life as a child. My father was holding services in a tent years before I was born in 1947. Dad would go to cities and set up a tent and preach for a month or more, and from those who were saved, a church would be formed.

The old picture above is one of dad's tents. My brother and I would spend a lot of hours under these tents.
