Served as a deacon of Missions and the outreach Ministry under the elders of the West Huntsville church of Christ. In the Outreach Ministry I was respoDsible for the extension services for Todd Towers, Big Spring Manor, Huntsville Nursing Home, Johnson Towers and Parkview Village. I was responsible for the scheduling of speakers and worship service participants. This program provided worship services for residents confined to these facilities. I would assist in getting residents to and from the worship area. I was responsible for speaking at one or more of these services each Sunday. I also was responsible for the mid-week service conducted at Johnson Towers on Tuesday nights. I served as Co-chairman of the Mission Committee. In this capacity I was responsible for the interviewing of prospective candidates for Missionary work both stateside and overseas. I made recommendations to the elders after researching and evaluating the mission work. This required budgeting, traveling to other states (to include New Hampshire, New York, Maryland, North Carolina, and Georgia) and visiting other congregations. I also visited mission sites supported by the church at West Huntsville. This required annual visits to evaluate the progress of the work and to provide moral and spiritual support to the assigned missionary and his family. I prepared written and formal oral reports and evaluation to the elders after each visit.

Team Leader

Served as a member of the West Huntsville church of Christ. I devoted many hours to the Lads to Leaders Program. Lads to Leaders is a developmental program for Christian youth. It serves as a training ground for youth in the areas of song leading, scripture reading, speaking, puppet ministry, scripture memorization, etc. This program was for boys and girls. I basically worked with the young men in speaking. I worked with my children as well as other groups in the congregation. We competed on a national level each year in Nashville, Tennessee with as many as 5,000 participants. Many of the youth came away with titles in their divisions(Two of my children won first place in their division). I served as a Judge in the speaking division for the competition held at David Lipscomb each year. I also worked as a Youth counselor in the Summer Camp Program held at Camp Neyati in Guntersville, Alabama. Each year the youth of the congregation would spend a week at the camp. I directed classes for the teens, guided art classes, and conducted special devotionals and nightly programs. During this time while attending the Preaching Workshop, I conducted the speaking service for Wednesday night. Participated in the speaking series and scheduled speakers for each Wednesday night.
