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

40th Wedding Anniversary and 1st Year at ROJBC

Its true, the first time in our 40 years of marriage, we song together as a special song. I said I would sang on our Wedding Anniversary, not realizing the date was on Sunday. So the people at ROJBC held us to it. They said we did okay.

July 6 was our first Sunday to preach, and then July 28 we were voted as pastor
  • The joy that Charity and I have had since coming to ROJBC is amazing. We have never in our entire ministry been so well loved in our first year. You wonderful people have treated us so kindly here at ROJBC. From the very start, we have just felt the joy of preaching and teaching, and the fellowship with all of you. You have shown calmly your willingness to listen and take in what I have presented. You have been encouraging to both Charity and me. In the face of difficulties, ROJBC is going to be okay, the Lord’s willing. Thank you for allowing us to be your pastor/teacher.
