Ministries: Missions and Men of Valor

I was introduced to the Church by a deacon at the Southside Church of Christ in Jacksonville, Florida. He conducted a Bible study with me and I obeyed the gospel about a month later. I wanted to serve God and lead my family in the right direction. The Word so inspired me to dedicate my life to God and still motives me to this day.

Understanding Mark 8:36,“ For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” is the driving force behind my daily commitment to my work as a deacon. I became a deacon in 1990. As a member of the leadership at West End, it is sometimes difficult to look out at the wonderful flock we have and not have my heart to ache with where we could be if everyone would use their talents more. Sometimes not getting the support I desire and lack of participation from the congregation is a two-edged sword. It’s saddening, but motivation to know we have such opportunity to make a difference.  When I look out over the congregation I see so much talent that God has blessed us with.  As an elder, I look forward to serving the flock in any way that I can according to his will.
