Associate Pastor / Music
God has blessed me with an amazing wife, Dianne. We have been married for 45years. We have one child named Mark, a daughter-in-law Cheryl and a grandson Layne and granddaughter Alana. I have been blessed to serve here at FBC for the last 42 years.
Here is my testimony. Before I was saved, I was dead in my sins and dead to God & had no desire for him.
By God’s grace I was placed in a Christian home where I heard the gospel at home and in my church. The first realization that I personally needed a Savior was as a young boy (about 8). My mother explained John 3:16 to me and I believe that the Word of God created faith in my soul (“ faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” Romans 10:17). I responded by trusting Jesus alone. After my conversion, I made a profession of faith in Christ at our church and followed in believers’ baptism.
My life since, has been probably much like yours….days of walking closely and sensing the presence of God, but also days of walking contrary to God’s revealed will. When I sin, the Holy Spirit convicts me of my sin, and reminds me of the all-sufficient grace of Christ. To quote John Piper, “I am desperately dependent on grace and happy about it.”
