I want to be intentional about my service to Jesus! I have the awesome opportunity and responsibility to be the Lead Worshipper at Bethel Baptist Church! This affords me the pleasure of organizing and preparing for corporate worship, conducting weekly structured practice for the adult choir as they lead out in worship and special events, and providing individual opportunities to participate through special music and service in our audio/video booth. Annual events that include an Easter Musical Drama and Christmas programs are other area of emphasis that provides additional service platforms.

I am Vice President and COO of Akin & Porter Produce Inc., this is my day job! I enjoy my family which includes my lovely wife of over 30 years, Tammy, our 4 grown children, 3 of which are married, and 3 grandchildren (so far…).

What I do in my spare time……..Sunday School Teacher of the Truth Seekers Sunday School Class, Active Deacon, Director of Banc 3 Holdings, Trustee at my alma mater Union University, high tenor for Second Generation Gospel Group, and oh yea, Tammy and I like to travel too!

God is faithful and I’m forgiven! What else is there?
