Disaster Relief

We have a group from Arizona with us this week.  They joined up with Disaster Teams from several local churches today to continue the clean-up effort and put vinyl siding on an area home.  Pray that the weather holds while they are here.  One “new” trailer was placed today.  And, we are expecting the Lane’s trailer sometime this week.  At least three new building projects are in the plans.  ((I ask you to pray for one young couple whose home was severely damaged…it looks like through the combined effort of the Red Cross, the Baptist Men, and several of the Methodist churches in the area, we will be able to place them back into a home soon  {{I love to see the Body of Christ working together!!!!!!}}))  Continue to pray as things “come together!”  If you or your church would like to volunteer, please call Tommy Styers with the North Carolina Baptist Men.  His number is 828-244-5686.

About Pastor

My Family: My wife and I have been married for 30 years (wow! that's hard to believe.) We have four wonderful children and EIGHT perfect grandchildren!! Education: I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Pastoral Theology from Tennessee Temple University. After serving Bethel Baptist Church in Ontario, Canada as Youth Pastor and South Buncombe Baptist in Asheville, NC as Associate Pastor, we moved to Wake Forest, NC where I attended Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. In 1995, I received my Master of Divinity degree (with languages.) From 1999-2001, I attended Southern Baptist Theological Seminary pursuing my Doctor of Ministry degree in Expository Preaching. Ministry: I have had the privilege of pastoring three wonderful congregations (Montwood Baptist 1993-1997; Union Baptist 1997-2002; and, South Fork Baptist 2010-present.) In 2010, God brought a very special group of people into my life. South Fork has become much more than a ministry to my family - it has become our home. If you are looking for a Church to call home, you will not find a better group of people than the family that makes up South Fork.
