Personal:

I am married to the former Mary Ann Adams from Knoxville Tennessee.  She home schools two of our three children and works part time for the village of Cedarville as the collection clerk.  She is a very a talented musician blessed with a beautiful voice which she uses to the glory of God singing in our church choir and with a band that plays primarily Christian oriented music with a bluegrass style.

I have three children Josh (15 years old), Jessica (13 years old), and Joey (9 years old).  Josh is in the nineth grade at Cedarcliff School, plays soccer and is a musician.  He plays the french horn in the schools band and various guitars.  Jessica is home schooled by her Mom and is a ballerina taking classes at Pontecorvo Ballet Studios and has performed with Ballet de Jeunesse (a pre-proffessional company) and at our church.  Joey enjoys sports of all kinds.  He is an active nine year old.

My family initially joined Emmanuel Baptist Church upon our arrival to this area in 1992.  At Emmanuel I substitute taught on occasion and filled the pulpit several times.  My wife and I changed membership from Emmanuel Baptist Church to Grace Baptist Church in December 1995.  We believed it appropriate become members of the baptistic church in our local community.  Since joining Grace I have led a small-group discussion on Wednesday evening, served as an usher, substitute taught my Sunday School class, and been on a teaching committee for the class.  I am currently the lead teacher for the Home Builders Sunday School class and serve as a deacon.

Prior to moving to Ohio I had previously taught several college age Sunday School classes, supplied the pulpit in approximately 25 churches, engaged in "street ministry" in Memphis, preached regularly at a rescue mission, worked with inmates at the jail in West Memphis Arkansas, been actively involved in Evangelism Explosion, taught Navigators 2:7 classes, served on a finance committee, and served as an usher.
