Elder

Why be an elder at Southland?
Being an elder is another way to serve.
When and how did you first come to Southland?
Our family first started coming to Southland through the 608 services with our college age children. Eventually, Amy and I decided to make Southland our home.
What’s your daily routine like of connecting with God?
I read a chapter a day and jot down notes as thoughts occur to me. I will also memorize scripture.
What’s your favorite area to serve in at Southland?
I have enjoyed serving in the children’s area on the Lexington campus.
What’s your life group or Biblical community like?
I currently meet weekly with a group of guys that are both very similar and very different from me. I have enjoyed the bible study and conversation.
What’s your wife’s name and kids’ names/ages (include grandkids) and how long have you been married?
Amy and I have been married for 31 years. Erin and her husband Michael presented us with our first grandson, Caleb (1 year). We also have two sons, Wade and Seth. All of our children are in their twenties.
What do you do for a living?
I am the local sales representative for Meda Pharmaceuticals.
What do you do for fun?
Amy and I enjoy traveling. We enjoy opening our home to a group of young people for Thursday Night Dinners. I enjoy reading, hiking, camping, and some hunting.
What’s one book that has impacted you?
Celebration of Discipline, Richard Foster
What’s something God’s been teaching you lately?
God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him. Matt 5:3 I have always thought this verse to be a good evangelistic prayer but now I look on it as something to pray for myself and other believers daily.
