Associate Pastor - Administration
I am a native Floridian coming to the Winter Haven area from Panama City Fl. In 1967. My wife Kandra (Short) Deal and I have been married for 46 years and have two children & five grandchildren. I was raised in church and have been involved in ministry much of my adult life. God opened the opportunity to move into a part time ministerial position in June of 2004 and eventually becoming full time at Ridge Community. I have served in several different areas of ministry while being on staff at RCC. At the present time I am Associate Pastor and assist the Lead Pastor in different areas. One of the areas that I oversee is the Golf team here at RCC. We often have as many as 8 men who show up on Monday afternoons to play and fellowship with each other. This activity has allowed us to build close relationships with each other for prayer and encouragement.
