Charlie Martin

I am married to Barbara and we have two grown children. I have been a member of the church since 1952 and a member of Fairview Road since 1998.One of my favorite Bible verses is Colossians 1:21-23. I like this verse is because it summarizes what God, through Jesus’ death on the cross, has done for us, reconciled us to him and what we must continue to do in our lives as his children, live in faith, established and firm and holding on to the hope of the gospel.


Britt Newby

I am married to Lynne Newby and we have three grown daughters. I have been a member of the church and a member of Fairview Road since 1981.One of my favorite Bible verses is Romans12:18. The reason why I like this verse is because it says a lot about how we are to view and interact we all people. Also, I saw this verse demonstrated by both my grandfather and father. Romans 12:18 In as much as it depends upon you, be at peace with all men.


Jerry Templer

I am married to Claudia and we have two grown children. I have been a member of the church since childhood and a member of Fairview Road since 1975. One of my favorite Bible verses is Habakkuk 3:17-18. The reason why I like this verse is because of the expression of unconditional faith and devotion to the Lord under the most difficult circumstances.


David Parker

I am married to Michele and we have four children at home. I have been a member of the church since childhood and a member at Fairview Road since 2006, when we relocated to Columbia. One of my favorite verses from the Bible is Micah 6:8 because it is a simple guide of how we should live out our Christian lives in the world. What does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”


Dee Vanderburg

I am married to Lisa Vanderburg and we have 3 grown children. I have been a member of the church since 1968 and a member of Fairview Road since 1994. The interaction with members and assisting them with their growth and relationship with Christ gives me great joy. It is inspiring to see the effect on a person’s life when they allow God to be in control. That process is a beautiful thing to behold!
