"In addition to the projects below, it's a true joy that our outreach extends to me serving as a "Regional Elder" for about 40 ministers in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in central Arkansas.  I am also able to preach at our denomination's churches when they need me.  Through it all, serving in all these ways is an amazing gift and blessing that I'm grateful for each day."
