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

Standing Behind the Sacred Desk To Speak the Word of God

 Bill Bower:  He love the Lord, he is a great help to us at Rivers of Joy Baptist Church
 I asked Charity to take a photo of me in the pulpit.  I have loved standing behind the pulpit since 1963. 
 Standing behind the desk to bring forth the Word of God is the joy of my life.
Some have said that I am more a teacher than a preacher, which is okay: I like Pastor/Teacher
