Kim the love of my life for over 30 years. Children: Lindsey & Chris, and sons Ian, Steele, Jacks and Max and daughter, Bennett. They attend Shady Grove. David Jacks Jr. (DJ) & Leslyn, and sons Emmett, Miles, and Declan live in Houston TX. DJ is an accountant for Cal Pine Corporation. They attend Talawood Baptist Church. Jonathan Jacks (Jon Jon) & Jarah, Jayney Jo, Owen Jay, and Halle live in Arkadelphia. Jon is employed by Legacy Inc and serves as the Youth Pastor at First Baptist Church, Murfreesobro, AR. I’m Blessed.
My passion is for the Body of Christ, the local church. There is nothing like the local church when the local church is working right. The local church has been entrusted with carrying the life changing message of Jesus Christ, and it’s the only hope that I see for this hurting and broken world. There’s nothing else like it. Not only does the local church help lost people come to faith, it helps the lonely, broken-hearted people cope with the cruelty of evil in this world. I love to lead, preach, dream, and pastor. My dream is to see this local church, Shady Grove thrive through leadership, evangelism, and outreach, by keeping Jesus at the center of all we do.
My Grandsons. Crappie Fishing. Working on projects around our house with Kim. Something you might not know about me: I love woodwork projects and especially with my boys when they come home.
One other interesting thing about me….I’ve never eaten a salad.
