I have attended CFO's since I was a child. As an adult, I have been actively and regularly involved with Shrine Mont CFO in Virginia for thirty years. I have been on the Council Ring and served as the Chair, led a children's program, led in creatives, served as a lamplighter, and have been a delegate to Zone 7 planning retreats. Participating in our summer family camp has positively impacted all six of our family members. Professionally, I am a Special Ed. high school teacher in central Virginia. I experience serving my students as ministry. My wife, Beverly, and I serve in various ways at our local church, including leading life groups and serving on the worship prayer team. Experiencing God's forgiveness and the joy and peace of walking in the Spirit continues to be a high privilege as a child of God.
