I have been in ministry for over 50 years. I have held various positions over the years. Most of the time, music was my primary focus, but at times I also served in other roles, including minister of youth, education, and administration. My last twenty years of ministry have been at Yellow Creek where I served as Minister of Music and Senior Adults and created the Easter pageant, “The Living Cross.” In 2003, I retired as the full-time minister of music but continue to work part-time with the senior adults. I have loved every minute of it!
I could never have served so long in ministry without the help of my loving wife, Iva. It has always been “our ministry.” Iva and I have been blessed with three wonderful daughters, Ronda, Amy, and Kara, and our six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren have added a lot of joy to our lives.
I received training for my positions in ministry from Campbellsville University, University of Louisville, and Southern Seminary, as well as various conferences in my fields of service. I enjoy reading and writing. I blog about things from the 40s, 50s, and 60s. The blog is entitled, “How About When.” Stop by and read it at www.howaboutwhen.com.
