Church was always an important part of Wendell’s life as he grew up in El Paso. At the age of 13, he accepted Christ as his Savior at a youth camp in Paisano, Texas where a deep love for young people and serving the Lord took root. He has been in various ministerial roles over the past 30 years and especially enjoys encouraging others to have a deeper walk with Christ.
Wendell has been married to his wife, Karen, for 27 years. They have 3 college-aged children of whom they are very proud. Wendell’s sense of humor and his positive attitude have led him on many adventures. He likes to golf, camp, hunt, and fish whenever he can and is licensed as a pyrotechnic with fireworks. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Studies and Theology from Louisiana Baptist University.
His favorite Scripture is Isaiah 41:10.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
