What's on your nightstand?
Usually some clean clothes I haven't put away yet, some flower nonsense that my wife put there, and my TV remote.
What's on your iTunes?
An eclectic mix really. But some that come to mind immediately are U2, Dave Matthews, Joe Bonomassa, classical, and a collection of Blues music.
What do you do with your free time?
I love to exercise, eat poorly (have to balance the exercise part), watch and play sports, and joke around (I don't take myself too seriously).

Grace Church is led by a group of men called elders. You can find out more about "elder" in our doctrinal statement.
The group of elders are laymen who serve in a purely volunteer basis as the legal officers and spiritual guides of the church. The lay elders are joined on the Elder Board by the Pastor. Lay elders serve for terms of typically three years followed by a sabbatical year. The Elder Board members are: Michael Belote, Jud Jones, Jerry McCall, Roger Von Edwins, and Bill Wenneker; and of course, Pastor Joshua Hurlburt. At any given time, 1-2 elders are on sabbatical. Doug Mary faithfully served for many years and has retired from the Elder Board, but his wisdom is still sought when appropriate.
