My wife Lois and I have worked side by side in ministry for many years, in a multitude of churches, as pastors, youth pastors, and as campus ministers. We have gown 2 kids and are helping grow many grandkids that bring great joy to our lives. Our desire as a couple is to use our giftedness in a way that is faithful to our participation in the Kingdom of God.

We have served the Church here in  the Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church from 2011. Our ecumenical past has taken us many places in ministry. We served in Kansas with Youth for Christ until moving to Tallinn Estonia in 1993 where we served as missionaries until 1995. We have worked side by side in the Evangelical Covenant, and American Baptist denominations, before finding our home here in the United Methodist Church. In Oklahoma we have served 15 different churches and ministries in three different home locations to date. We love working side by side in ministry. Lois is a retired Registered Nurse prior to ministy, and Francis a Hairstylist and platform artist with a major perm company.  These experiences helped form our ability to relate very well to people from a multitude of backgrounds. 

Lois is a runner. Francis a couch potato that plays video games. Francis likes making things from wood, Lois likes giving them away. Lois loves to camp, Francis sets up the tents, cooks, cleans, packs the truck and coolers, and anything else camping entails. Francis likes to stay up late, Lois is an early moring chatter box. Francis is an introvert and Lois is a jokester. LOL or maybe the other way around... you will have to meet us to figure that one out. The main things we have in common is our love for eachother,family,friends, neighbors, and especally Jesus... and the joy in our working together in ministry! 

We have led many short-term missions and spiritual retreats. We have led and worked with many groups in short-term mission experiences in Estonia (Former Soviet Union), England, Hungry, Mexico, intercity Chicago, and Indianapolis, urban ministries in many cities around the midwest. We have also organized several camping retreats in both the Smoky Mountains and the Rocky Mountain National parks. 

We are blessed to be a part of the Albright Church community and are love the many people we have as friends in Ponca City area. We hope to meet you soon.
