For as the body is one and has many parts, and all the parts of that body, though many, are one body - so also is Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body - whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free - and we were all made to drink of one Spirit. So the body is not one part but many.

1 Corinthians 12:12-14

We love serving in our local church and seeking to further God's Kingdom.

Sid Ware

Student Ministry director

Growing up in the small eastern New Mexico village of Grady taught me 3 things, you can make your own gum if you chew up enough grains of wheat, you can see people coming to visit for miles, and family is very important. While attending Eastern New Mexico University, I met Buffy at the BSU, Twice (Ask us for details). While dating, we starting working at the Baptist Children’s Home, allowing the opportunity for us to get married on the grounds there. Buffy and I now have 2 beautiful daughters, Morgan Brooke and Tyla Mason. As a family, we enjoy spending time together hunting, fishing, and spending time together.
