I was raised and saved at the Tulsa Baptist Temple under the ministry of Dr. Clifford Clark. I attended Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri, from 1973 to 1976, and graduated in 1976 with a missions major. While in college I met Cathy Hudberg and we were married in 1978. We have four children (Kjersten, Kaleb, Karson and Kolter) and one grandson (Myles).
For eight years we served in various positions in three churches in Colorado, Georgia, and Montana. In January of 1986 we started the Friendship Baptist Church in Clancy under the authority of Liberty Baptist Church of Helena, our mother church. In June of 1992, after purchasing acreage, we then began construction of an 8,000 square foot church.
The highlights of our church-planting endeavor are many: the joy and satisfaction of seeing souls saved, lives changed, and making an impact on an entire community. The Lord has blessed us with a missions-hearted people who have a desire to impact not only their community, but also Montana and the world for Christ.
