Chris is the current liaison for Outreach. Have you trusted the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and eternal life? This is the most important life decision you will ever make! I have been married to my wonderful wife Sue for 27 years. We have been blessed with 3 kids, Daniel, Steven, and Jessica who all love Jesus! My passion and ministry is to share the good news of Jesus with others. I love to teach the Truth of God’s Word and Biblical apologetics to kids so they can be firmly rooted in their faith, knowing they can trust the Bible from the very first verse in Genesis. Another passion and ministry of mine is supporting and serving at Horton Haven Christian Camp where the focus is sharing the Good News of Jesus with the campers and discipling the teen and young adult staff.

Since retiring in 2006, Pat has enjoyed travel (highlights include trips to Israel and 7 mission trips), gardening, and women’s Bible Studies, but her real joy is being with her family. 7 of their 14 grandchildren live locally and keep things lively!
