- Favorite Bible Verse/character and why:
- Favorite verse: Habakkuk 3:17-19. Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation. God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer’s; he makes me tread on my high places.
- Favorite character: As someone who has struggled with pride, his favorite Bible character is John the baptizer for John gladly became less that Christ might become more.
- Hobbies/Extracurricular Activities:
- Lee likes hunting, fishing and reading. He also likes to eat meat, lots and lots of meat. Julie is a reader as well. She enjoys crafts and loves the beach.
- What would you tell someone looking for a church home about Twickenham?
- Twickenham is a church that believes the Bible really is the word of God and that this word really does bring life. We really do believe that we were enemies of God and objects of his wrath. And we believe that - at just the right time - Christ died for us, the ungodly. We believe that, in doing so, he justified us by his blood and reconciled us to God. And we believe that, since God has reconciled us, we should give of our time, talents and treasure and even our very lives to make his name known here in Huntsville and among the nations that those from every nation, tribe, people, and language might know that salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne and to the Lamb!
