I was born in Fort Worth, Texas in 1954 to Bill and Bobbie Davis. I have one brother, Bryan, and one sister, Brenda. My mom always referred to our family as the 5 B's. After spending most of my elementary school years in Hurst, Texas, my dad was transferred to Tulsa, Oklahoma just before I started sixth grade. We attended the Memorial Dr. congregation for a short while before we moved to the north side of Tulsa and started attending the Springdale Church of Christ. There was a very active youth group there where I experienced a lot of youth rallies, camps, and mission trips.
After graduating from East Central High School, I attended Harding College where I met my wife Carol. I held several positions in the Frater Sodalis social club including President my Junior year. I was also on the college bowling team all four years and still hold the record for the highest average (207) in school history. I went on Campaigns Northwest my Senior year to Moses Lake, Washington, and Portland, Oregon. I left before we got started in Great Falls, Montana to head for Lisbon, Ohio where I married my bride. After graduating from Harding in 1976 with a degree in Business, Carol and I moved to Monroe, Louisiana for a little over a year where our first child, Candy, was born. After returning to Tulsa to work for Amoco, Crystal came along in 1979. We eventually got an opportunity to relocate to Denver in May of 1981. Carie came along in August, shortly after our arrival. Brandon was born in 1984 and our family was complete.
Once in Denver, we attended the Lakewood congregation until, with the help of Carol's dad, we built our house out close to Parker. I should probably say that Carol's dad, Argle, built it with a little help from us. We then attended the Parker Church of Christ for a while until we discovered Southeast thanks to Jay and Wanise Lemmons, good friends from college.
We worked with the youth group much of the time we have been here. I have served as a Shepherd since 1995. My passions are short-term mission work in the former Soviet Union and teaching. I have been to Russia, Khasakstan, and Ukraine. I plan to continue going back as long as the Lord allows and the doors are still open.
We are very blessed to be a part of a loving family like Southeast. We are also blessed to have all of our children married and still living close to us here in the Denver area.
