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



The Sunday Bible Study we continued in Proverbs 13:21-24 The wisdom of Solomon on parenting. The Bible as the wisdom for sure. To apply those principles in our lives is another challenge for sure. But we had a great time with our class in dealing with this subject. What is interesting, in our society today, grandparents are raising their grand kids.It is amazing how many are doing this. We have great-grandparents who take care of their grand daughter's child..

The Sunday Morning service was good too. Bill Bower was great in leading us in singing, and Johnny Edwards again was great in playing the piano and singing as usual. My message was from Romans 3:21-26 Maybe the most important verses in the Bible. How Are We Make Right With God? Romans is a great book.

Charity and I had a nice afternoon, nice lunch, and then back to church by 5:30 p.m.

Good service Sunday Night, I spoke on The Eagle. Ten Dangers To Look Out For.

Following the service we had a great time of fellowship. Its good that we can have time to fellowship.

We were back home by 8:30 p.m.

I will be putting the three lessons on Vimeo. Outlines will be posted later. This is going to be a good week.
