Jim Childress became an Elder in 2008. He was baptized at the age 16 at the Waynesboro church of Christ. The Denney family introduced his family to the church and his parents were long time faithful members. Jim has been in the car business 39 years. He currently works at Colonial Auto Center in Charlottesville as a Sales manager. He met his wife Kathy at Lipscomb University. They both graduated in 1974. They have 2 daughters. Karla graduated from Lipscomb and lives on the West Coast. Kristin graduated from Abilene Christian University and lives on the East coast. The Great Commission found in Matthew 28.18-20 speaks to Jim. He is a great firm believer that we should share the gospel with everyone. He also loves the character of Noah, a preacher who built the ark on faith. He loves to sing “I am Crucified with Christ,” “I’ll Fly Away” and “The Battle belongs to the Lord.” As a youth, he loved space exploration and never missed a launch. He is an Eagle Scout and has devoted 21 years to Scouting, and served all positions. He has travelled to Hong Kong, China and Japan. He loves to watch NASCAR racing, travel to Nags Head and spend time outdoors camping. Jim’s favorite part about being an Elder is being asked by members to come pray with them.
