Senior Pastor

1. How did you find yourself at Arbor?

A friend sent my name to the Search Committee twenty-six years ago. After much prayer I accepted the call to Arbor and began my ministry on May 1, 1990. I have considered it a privilege to have served God in the same church for over twenty-seven years.

2. What is one of your favorite scriptures?

One of my favorite verses is in Psalm 33.4-5, “But I trust in you Lord; I say, You are my God. My times are in your hands.” Nothing happens in my life without God’s permission.

3. Do you have a favorite movie?

My favorite TV show is NCIS. I am in the process of collecting the DVD’s for all the seasons it has been on.

4. What are 5 of your favorite books?

My favorite authors are Chuck Swindoll, Max Lucado, John MacArthur, D.A. Carson, and Mark Batterson. Each one of these writers spoke to me at a particular time in my life when I needed encouragement. They are all solid Biblical authors.

5. What do you like to do in your free time?

In my leisure time I enjoy spending time with my wife Marsha, my sons P.K., his wife Melinda, and Matthew; my grandchildren Kennedie, Avery, and Cory. I also enjoy reading by the ocean or reading in the shadow of the Smokey Mountains.
