About Me

My photo

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



Now while I love to preach and teach and have for forty years, and while I could never give my total attention to playing sports, I have always loved sports.


Sports have never taken the place of ministry, but as a youth director or pastor they have been a part of ministry with youth.


I have previously told the story about my collection and how that started (check here). Sports has being a connection with my kids and friends and people whom I didn't know.


This new Lexmark x3540 scanner has really been great. The cards above are just a dot in my collection.
Some preachers play golf, some preachers race cars, really. Some preachers play basketball. You can play golf at 80 years old. Maybe I should have taken up golf. I will address that issue later, Eric.
Thanks again kids for the scanner/printer/copier/fax.
