Cindy and I placed our membership with this congregation on Nov. 19, 1989 (the day after we were married). Almost half of our lives have been spent in this congregation and our girls have grown up with this church family. We’ve seen many changes: families come to and move away from Conway, kids grow up and wonderful saints go ahead of us. As a deacon for 14 years, I’ve seen one thing that hasn’t changed – we have an eldership who strives to be faithful to God’s Word.
As a new elder, I cannot imagine a better group of men to work with. Your elders love you, love each other and most importantly love God and desire to be true to His Word.
As I take on this responsibility, I am reminded of what Paul writes in Philippians 4: Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
