I have been a follower of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, since childhood, and a member of GBC for about 20 years. I enjoy teaching the Word of God and helping disciple and shepherd other members of the Body, so that we can collectively carry out the Great Commission. In that regard, I have served as Chairman of the Congregation and as a member of the Church Council on numerous occasions, and currently teach the Adult Fellowship Sunday School Class and the children of GBC through AWANA. I am married to an amazing lady (Barbara) who has gifted me with four wonderful adult children (Aaron, Jake, Nathan, and Abby), and any time I can spend with family is a good day in my book. I recently retired after more than 42 years as a federal government employee, including six years active duty Navy (submariner) and more than 35 years as an operations analyst at the Officer of Naval Intelligence. Outside of church activities, I usually can be found watching or participating in some type of sporting event.
