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


One of the first sermons I preached was "Samson's Empty Hands." In my old Scofield Bible that I had back in high school I have the notes that I used.  Goodness.  I must have preached that sermon a few dozen times.

I don't know if it was back in 1964 in Roanoke Baptist Temple that I first preached it.  But I preached it in a lot of places.

Al Myers and Don and myself would go places to preach in youth meetings in those days. We had a great time.  I only wised we had photos of those days. But I don't have any photos of those times in Roanoke, Virginia.

Talked to Al and Barbara  Myers March 01 over the phone, and they are doing so good as a family and as servants of Christ in their local church. What a blessing to learn of their faithfulness to the Lord.
