Pastor Denzil Smith // Pastoral Care

I was born in Southern Indiana, one of six children, and raised on 143 acres of farmland with animals including 75,000 chickens. At age 13 my family attended a Camp Meeting where our entire family was saved. I was called to ministry at age 22. My wife Gerry and I have three children, which along with their wives are all serving in ministry, 12 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. We are very blessed in that we have been serving God for over 50 years and our families are serving the Lord also. God is so good!
