The couple has two children, Josh who is a building science major at Auburn University and Laura who is a business major at Southern Union State Community College. The family enjoys having game nights, family meals and camping.
Manufacturing steeples, baptistries and crosses for churches is an honor. Steeples are more than just a decoration on the top of a building – they identify a building as a church, a place of grace and love. It stands tall and points to heaven and our Heavenly Father. Baptistries are more than just a pool that holds water. They are something that is used to demonstrate the forgiveness and grace given by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Cross is the most important symbol of the Christian faith. Without the cross, we have no hope. It is a reminder of what Jesus did for all mankind and His saving grace that is extended to us all. We view our work as a divine calling and count it privilege to work with the churches we serve.
And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. - Colossians 3:17
