God has blessed be with the opportunity to serve as Pres. of the Board of Winston Area Community PArtnership- a coalition of local folks who dream big; I also serve on the board of the Winston Community Education Network, a group of folks deeply committed to providing funding for education; I serve as a Commissioner on the Douglas County Commission on Children and Families where I assist in programs such as Healthy Start; Build Our Kids (a 40 Asset based program developing community assets); I am a Winston Dillard School District budget committee member; I am Chairman of the Finance Committee of the Executive Committee of the Northwest Baptist Convention; I am the Treasurer of the Winsot Dillard Ministerial Association.

  1. Steve,
    Your name sounds familiar. My name is Tim English and I am a SB pastor in Pueblo, CO. I attended Midwestern Seminary from 95-01. I am also originally from Dallas, Oregon. Let me know if we have met somewhere before.
