    I was raised in Birmingham, Alabama, whoo hoo for the south!  I have 6 brothers and sisters. I went to Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida. My wife Danita and I have served New Albany First since 1997. To God be the Glory. He is so faithful to this body of believers. One of my passions is seeing people come to a deep relationship with the Lord, connecting people to serve in capacities as God leads. Come and join us here at New Albany First; you won't be disappointed. God has great plans for your life.  Journey with us and together we will touch a city for God. Hope to see you this Sunday, ready to worship and praise together.

    I am a mother of three wonderful sons who are all serving the Lord. That brings me great joy. New Albany has been my home town for over 35 years. I went to New Albany High School, Zion in East Providence, Rhode Island, then to Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida. This is where I met and married my husband Steve. I serve in several different capacities in our church, working with some great people. One of my greatest joys of ministry is seeing souls come into relationship with the Lord and growing. Hope to meet you soon.

    It has been a privilege to be apart of New Albany First for over 17 years.  Chris and I attended, met and graduated from North Central University in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  We have 3 children which we hope will support and care for us one day.  We have years of youth, missions, and worship experience and currently lead worship on Sunday mornings to help usher in the presence of God.  Helping connect people to Christ through worship is something we love.  We are grateful to be a part of a wonderful church family where our family can grow.
