Associate Pastor - Administration

Ministry Role & Responsibility:

I wear a lot of hats at WHBC. My primary role is church administrator which involves the daily oversite of the facilities. On Sunday and Wed nights I assist the volunteers in our children’s ministry. During the week I assist the pastor in care for the members, outreach and education.

About Me:

I have been married to my beautiful bride, Wanda Hudson (Toccoa, GA) since 1974. We have a daughter, Andrea Malone (Marc) and two wonderful grandsons Hudson and Silas.  My son, Micah (& Blair) are serving in Southeast Asia. Lydia, Elli, and Caleb are my other wonderful grandchildren.

I grew up in East Point, GA and have been in ministry since 1973. We love spending time with our grandchildren and camping.

Youth Pastor

Ministry Role & Responsibility: My role on the Western Heights leadership team primarily relates to ministering to middle and high school students and their parents. I am responsible for building relationships, encouraging spiritual disciplines, and providing opportunities to serve and participate in the different ministry areas in the church as well as in the community. It is my role to equip other members of our faith community to invest in our students. My passion is sharing the good news of Jesus with others, and equipping students and other members of our faith community to do the same.

About Me: I married my wonderful wife Ryann in 2008. We have lived in and around LaGrange ever since then. LaGrange is our home and we love this community! For fun we like to spend time with friends and family, we enjoy movies and good books. We also enjoy home projects and repurposing discarded items into new life! I am also a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan.

Favorite Scripture: Psalm 1:1-6

Interesting Fact: I am what some would call a penny pincher. I prefer the term frugal or frugally minded. That is why it is not uncommon to see me pulling my car over to peek into dumpsters at construction sites and around businesses. You never know what treasures you may find!
