It has been our tremendous privilege to lead First Baptist Church of Glen Este for the past 33 years. Through the ups and downs of pastoring the joys have far outweighed any discouragements that we have had. The people of First Baptist have made our journey a joy.

Paul said in Philippians 4:1 “Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.” That is how we feel about you, our church family. Our desire for the future is that together we will “stand fast in the Lord.”

Thank you for honoring us today for 33 years of pastoring. Joy and I love you, appreciate you, and are grateful for the gifts and acknowledgment of the years.
