Music Minister

I serve as the music director of FBC in a bi-vocational position. I was the Jr. High Principal for 16 years at Friona, then retired from that position, was an assistant principal at Clovis High School in Clovis, NM, and am currently substitute teaching and driving activity busses for Friona. 

I grew up in Sudan, Texas, until I was 13. My family moved to Friona when my dad bought land and began farming here. I graduated from Friona High School in 1973, and went to Angelo State University and then Wayland Baptist University, where I earned my BS degree. I married my high school sweetheart, Carolyn Murphree, and began coaching and teaching, which took me to Plainview High School, Muleshoe High School, and Snyder High School. After getting my masters degree in mid-management at West Texas State University, I began my career as a principal at Petersburg High School. In 1992, an opportunity presented itself to move back home to Friona after being gone from the community for 19 years. My wife and I have lived here ever since then. A few years after moving home, the music minister left, and I said I would fill in until they found another one, and twenty years later, I'm still "filling in"!!

Carolyn and I have three children who are grown. Sheila and her husband, Toby and four children live in Amarillo, TX. Son, Kyle works for an insurance company, traveling all over the U.S., and Brian and Hope and their two children live in Minneapolis, MN, where he serves with a mission organization called Training Leaders International.

I love to sing and lead in worship at FBC!   I still believe in the value of the hymns, and love to find meaningful worship songs of today. One of my outlets in music is singing monthly with the Panhandle Singing Men of Texas.
