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


I was at the desk today, and Charity said, "are you going to move the tables today?" And without thinking I said, "Yes." What was I thinking? So within minutes I went down stairs and begin to take the kitchen table out and going to replace with the table in the dinning room. Then Charity wanted to take the love seat out of the bedroom and put in the new sitting room, which was the old dinning room, which was the TV room. So the work began. What a morning. Charity said, "I am glad that you listen to the Pastor's message on Sunday." I had to remember what I had taught. Am I responsible to listen to what I preach?

Then later we went to Chillicothe for dinner at Red Lobster. Then to J.C. Penny's where I bought two shirts. Then to Sam's to buy contact lens. A great 80 mile round trip and time with Charity and back home in three hours.
