Greetings First United Methodist Church of Goldthwaite TX!!
Sherri and I are so excited to be here and are ready to be in ministry together with you. We have lived in Kansas all our lives but fell in love with the Texas Gulf Coast, particularly Port Aransas, about ten years ago. We made the decision a few years ago to make Port Aransas our retirement home. We're not quite ready for retirement yet, but we're certainly ready to be closer to our retirement home. We haven't purchased one yet, but we'll be working on that over the next few years.
I have been a pastor in Kansas for 22 years, first in the Kansas West Conference, then in the Great Plains Conference when Kansas united with Nebraska to form one Conference. When I requested an appointment in the Rio Texas Conference, I made myself available to serve anywhere in the Conference. We could not be more pleased with the result. We are loving it here in Goldthwaite and are looking forward to getting to know you! We have received such a warm welcome and gifts of food and items for the house that we feel right at home already.
Thank you for making us feel so welcome! Looking forward to the fun we're going to have being in ministry with you.
