Our great God and Savior has given me the grace to pastor this wonderful faith family for over 26 years. Karen and I have been blessed with a blissful marriage for 41 years. We have two wonderful grown children and 5 amazing grandchildren.
My passion and purpose for my life and our faith family is:
Love God (Matt. 22:37 & 38)
Love People (Matt. 22:39)
Make Disciples (Matt. 28:18-20)
I want to personally invite you to worship and serve our Lord alongside of each other.
You are always welcome at Hahira First Baptist Church.
