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

Visiting with Famiy in Lexington KY


The family threw me pre- birthday party on Saturday at Eric and Leslie Whisnant house. Leslie had a wonderful meal prepared for us.

The photos are not in order of the events that took place.



The theme of the event was THE OWL.  There are two owls on our property back of the house and that was the theme.  So Charity had Union Mills to make a cake with the owl.

And also there was the cookie owls that they made, and they were really good.

So here is the cake and the Stuff Owl and the cake

We had time to play with AGW and Trey while we were there

We had fun with AGW and Trey and Zippie liked Trey as well
