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
