How do you desire to serve God: 

At my age, I am limited to what I can do physically, but I can still pray, call and send cards.  I also can keep up my church clerk duties on my computer.   I would like to do what I did down through the years, but God gave me the good sense to realize those things are in the past.    Now I can study my Bible, pray and listen to good Southern gospel music.

What I Love About OBC: The servant spirit of so many here. I also love the way the gospel is presented in a bold, unapologetic way. We have a love for God and our community and are not afraid to live it.

What Inspires Me: My children are a constant source of inspiration for me. The boldness and steadfastness of our staff is also a point of inspiration. I find that Christian music of all genres helps me with the day-to-day challenges and inspires me to seek God’s face in not only the trying times , but the good times as well.

Favorite Bible Verse: There are so many, but the one that means the most would have to be Hebrews 12:1-2. Romans 8:1-4 is another passage that has helped me.

How Do You Desire to Serve God: To show the love and mercy of God to those who have not found him yet. Using my talents to fulfill the Great Commission. To see the lost and wandering come to a true, personal relationship with Jesus.
