It is the pleasure of our deacon board to serve as spiritual leaders of our church. They serve by sitting on committees and by having designated families for whom they are accountable. Please contact us if you would like to know more about your deacon and how you can contact them.

I grew up in East Tennessee where I lived when I joined the Army in 1984, retiring in 2006. My wife Barbara of over 30 years and I raised kids and traveled to 48 states and 44 countries before settling in Elgin four years ago. We attend and worship God at Blaney with son Jeff and daughter Ashley. I play in a bluegrass band, sing in choir, and oversee the Stewardship and Personnel Committees with fellow deacon Jason. Besides travel and music, I also enjoy fishing and golf.

I love the Lord and love serving in our church. I asked Jesus into my heart at an early age, and was baptized by my grandfather, who was a pastor. I am passionate about seeing people come to know the Lord as their personal savior. My wife Kimberly and I have been married twenty years, and we grew up in Blaney church. We enjoy being involved in children and youth ministries.  We have two beautiful daughters Anna Grace, and Ashley. 
Proverbs 3:5-6New International Version (NIV)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.

I was born and raised in South Carolina and have lived here most of my life.  My family started attending Blaney Baptist Church when I was five years old.  I was baptized in the old sanctuary at the age of 12.  After college, I strayed away from God but was led back to Blaney in 2006 and have been here since.  I am currently attending college so that I may use the gifts God gave me to the fullest.  I am glad to serve a loving God who, despite my many faults, sent His Son to provide a way for me to be made right with Him.

I am a native of Florida and ended up right here at Blaney after coming back to God’s plan for my life. I have been blessed to be on this journey with Mitzi (my wife of over 20 years). We have both greatly enjoyed our time helping with different activities and being on the youth council. I was baptized early in my life and chose to reaffirm this at Blaney. As a first time deacon, I pray everyday that He would lead me in what He would have me do in service to the Bride of Christ
