What I love about what I do: I just love listening to and seeing people connect with God.  It's a marvelous and beautiful thing! 

My dream for Saginaw UMC: My dream is that SUMC would continue to grow in spiritual and numerical growth.  I want to see people excited about God working in their lives and sharing what God's doing with others. It's contagious!

Brag about my family: I have four grown children and 3 grandchildren.  Most of them live in Arkansas.  Kim, my oldest daughter is currently teaching, although she has her doctorate in Physical Therapy. She and her husband, Forrest, live in Conway, AR and have two sons, Noah-10 and Isaac-8.  My next daughter Tiffany lives in Plano, TX and is a dental hygienist.  My oldest son, Luke and his wife, Carolyn live in Bentonville, AR. Luke is an ICU nurse.  They have a daughter named Olivia who just turned 1.  My youngest, Bryce, lives in Fayetteville, AR and is a graphic designer.  My dad was a long time Methodist music minister in Fort Worth.  My mom still lives in Fort Worth and attends University Christian Church.

Favorite Scriptures:

John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing."
Galatians 2:20 "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."
Luke 15:20 “So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him."

Currently Listening to: Liebeslieder (Love Song) Waltzes by Brahms, Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra and Miles Davis.
