Sandy and I moved to Conway and to R&C in September 2009 after fifteen years with the North Heights church in Batesville, AR. I am an Arkansan by birth, Sandy was born and raised in Michigan, though by southern parents. It only causes problems on the rare occasion that Arkansas plays Michigan (She’s a little conflicted -- I’m fine).
We have three daughters. Whitney is a therapist (MFT) and is working with the Southern Christian Home. Leeann is an instructor at UCA, near the end of her doctoral work, her husband Jordan is a therapist and works with Southern Christian Home in Morrilton, they have one son, Jude. Our oldest daughter, Lindsey, is a stay-at-home mom, caring for our two oldest grandchildren: Kade (8) and Zoe (5). All three girls, and the two sons-in-law, are all Harding grads, Lindsey’s degree is in Child Development. Lindsey’s husband, Keith, is a minister for the Pleasant Valley church in LR.
I have been preaching full-time now for over thirty years. Sandy and I met when I went to Michigan to attend a preaching school there right out of high school. After graduation there I continued my education and have earned both undergraduate and graduate degrees from Harding University.
Sandy and I love living in Conway and are excited about what lies in store for this church and community. I enjoy our weekly “Staff Meetings” at Stoby’s with Jonathan, Nick, and Ben (Wednesday’s happen to be “pancake day”). Sandy refers to it as our “Stack meeting”.
