Don grew up in the small town of Elwin, IL in Central Illinois where he came to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as a young man in his early 20’s.  Don and late wife Theresa were blessed with 7 children.  Don and Theresa began attending Harvest Decatur on “Launch Sunday”, the first public service held when the church began operation in the Mt Zion Stand movie theatre.   From that first day, Don knew Harvest was to be his family’s church home as the unity of the saints was sweet. The preaching was directly from God’s word, and everyone was working for Christ to bring the Gospel the City of Decatur.  Don, an Industrial and Civil Engineer by formal education training, has served at Harvest in all aspects of the church and continues to serve God’s people to this day.  What a mighty God we serve.
