May 8, 2017 – present: Moved to Durant, Oklahoma to work as pulpit minister of the Northwest church of Christ.
From September 8, 2013 till May 8, 2017, we were blessed to minister at the Sunset Avenue church of Christ in Madera, California, 93637. We were an English and Spanish-speaking congregation meeting in the same building of some 145 members (when they are all there) with five elders and four deacons when we left.
(Terry and I have had many people into our home the first year here and continue to do so regularly. These are a few of those pictures…plus a few others that relate to leadership and our location)
January 1, 2013 – September 5, 2013: Terry attended a language school in Beijing, China, so we could get our Visa to stay in the country. I worked full-time with the Beijing church of Christ (www.beijingchurchofchrist.com) in addition to having numerous private studies with individuals and groups in our home.
February 14, 2011-December 29, 2012 – Terry and I were in Jingzhou, China teaching conversational English (www.tjsman.wordpress.com) in a university there. In our private times, we were sowing seed among the Chinese youth through small group studies.
May, 1979 – March, 2010 – Prior to these efforts, we ministered in Sacramento, CA., Plantation, Florida, Murfreesboro and Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Mansfield and Mentor, Ohio.
