    I was born and raised in Blount County. Carolyn and I have been married for 54 years. I have served as a deacon and as a pastor in the Etowah and St. Clair Baptist Associations. I enjoy preaching the Word and being a servant to God and the people. I have a good sense of humor, a forgiving spirit, and a tremendous love for the church and the people. Looking forward to see what great things are ahead for the church. “God is good, all the time”
