|Youth Minister - Paul Fletcher|
I was born in Norman, OK to Ron and Pam Fletcher
on June 8, 1972. My Father Ron has been a
Church of Christ preacher my entire life. He is
still preaching in Butler, OK where he has been
preaching for over 20 years. My dad as well as my
brothers and I have all been a part of the
University of Oklahoma Sooner Football
We grew up in Clinton, OK where my dad served as
the preacher for a Church of Christ there for
eight years. I was 12 years old when we
moved back to Norman. Christmas day, 1984,
I was baptized by Willie Franklin at the Westside
Church of Christ. I graduated from Norman
High School in 1990.
From 2000-2004 we served as Youth and Family
Minister for the Pleasant Valley Church of Christ
in Van Buren, AR. Dory and I had our two
children, Caleb and Shiloh, in Ft. Smith during
that time. In 2004 Nancy Rankin, Jimmy
Allen and Bobby Parks were instrumental in
helping send me to the Harding School of Biblical
Studies in Searcy, AR, along with many other
loving family, friends and supporters. We
graduated from the School of Biblical Studies in
July 2006. We served with the Crossroads Church
of Christ in Bradford, AR the first year while in
school and with the Downtown Church of Christ
during the second, along with a few trips to
Poteau as well.
|Involvment Minister - Paul Williams|
I was born in Arlington, TX, in 1959. We moved back ‘home' to Sebastian County, AR, when I was 7 years old. We had a farm and my dad began preaching. We moved again from Hackett, AR, to Wayne, OK, when I was 14 years old. I graduated high school from Wayne. Upon graduation, I attended Oklahoma Christian College for two years. I then went to the Bear Valley School of Biblical Studies and went through their intense three year program. I began my career as a youth minister in Wellington, TX. After a couple of years, I then went into full time pulpit ministry. I have preached in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma. When I turned 40, I left full time ministry and began working at Sebastian County Road Department, in Greenwood AR. I continued preaching and teaching in a ‘part time' capacity. I have three children, PJ, Kristin, and Austin, five grandchildren, one step daughter, and one step granddaughter. I have been married to Gina for 7 ½ years. Gina and I love people. We accepted the Involvement Minister position in November, 2018. This position is one that we cherish. We love meeting new people and having people into our home.
|Prison Minister - Kevin Lashley|
|Spanish Minister - JJ Espinoza|
I was born in San Antonio, Texas to Jose V. and Rosalinda S. Espinoza. I am the oldest of three boys and one older sister. I was raised in San Antonio, Texas and graduated in 1995 from Sidney Lanier High School. After high school, I continued my education at San Antonio College and Harding University School of Biblical Studies in Searcy, Arkansas.
At the age of 15, I was baptized at Grove Avenue Church of Christ in San Antonio, Texas, where I was part of an inner-city youth group. Later at the age of 23, I was invited to volunteer in some medical campaigns to different parts of Mexico, which made me realize how blessed I was by God. Upon returning from one of the medical campaigns, I was encouraged by my now brother-in-law, Esteban Gonzales, to get to know Christ better and attend Harding School of Biblical Studies. I was already seeing God's blessings, but I wanted to know more of his word and that grace which saved me. After attending Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas, I came to Poteau, Oklahoma to see my first niece born. Coming to Poteau, Oklahoma is a blessing because God continues to bless me and now uses me in the sharing of his word. Poteau, Oklahoma is also where God blessed me with my beautiful wife, Amy S. Espinoza, and my Christian family at the Poteau Church of Christ, where I now serve as the Spanish Minister.
