|I breathed my first breath on July 30, 1930 in a little farm house near Marietta, OK. My first memories are from age 2½ years. Between then and our move to Yuma, AZ in 1941 we lived in 9 other places. |
From the year I started school through the 4th grade I had repeated one grade, missed 1½ years of school and changed schools 7 times and occasionally made the honor roll.
In high school I majored in agriculture, was a member of the FFA and the Yuma Criminals football team. During my junior year I became a Christian and met the girl I married 4 days after we graduated from high school. I felt called to the ministry during my senior year and my education plans changed. Beyond high school: Arizona Bible Institute in Phoenix, AZ, 1 year; Western Baptist College, Salem, OR, 2½ years; and extension courses from Fuller Theological Seminary.
I was a "jack of all trades" working as a heavy equipment operator, mechanic, welder, farm hand, hard rock miner, "powder monkey" (high explosives), and truck driver. Most of my work from 1956 to 1974 was "bi-vocational." I worked in secular employment while serving 17½ years as pastor of 5 different churches in NV, CA, and WA. I owned and operated a long haul truck 1977-1994.
In 54 years of marriage Sylvia and I have lived in 34 different places in Arizona, California, Nevada, Washington, and Oregon. And were successful as parents of 2 boys and 4 girls.
