LIFE STORY

I was not raised in a Christian home- quite the opposite, I was raised in the local bars. My parents divorced when I was 2 yrs old, which lead to several step-dads. Step-dad number 4 was abusive and a drunk. In high school I met a Christian girl. She invited me to her church and youth group. I became a believer at one of her youth group events.

After high school, I joined the US Navy and I married that Christian girl just after bootcamp. We have two grown sons and six grandchildren. My wife, April and I have been married 41 yrs.

 

HOPE FOR FELLOWSHIP

My hope for Fellowship Community Church is for open hearts to honestly love God, abide in His word, and love others with genuine compassion.
