Deacon Rich Winn
I am a very blessed man who happens to be married to a beautifully creative woman, Cindy. She has a heart on fire for the Lord Jesus in serving the many women that God brings through her ministry!
We have two amazing daughters, Mickey & Anna, who are indeed gifts from the Lord. I will never stop praising my Savior for my awesome girls and my fantastic wife!
The Lord brought us up here to live in the foothills of Calaveras County, in the small town of Murphys, often referred to as "Queen of the Sierras." I am so glad that we were willing to follow His plans for our lives, so we could raise our daughters in a rural environment of seeing His beauty that abounds all around us!
I was honored to be their "principal" and my wife was their teacher throughout their education, having been being home-schooled in a loving educational setting. They were raised with the knowledge that Jesus Christ will always be there for them, as their Firm Foundation, their Mighty Rock in life!
By profession, I am a licensed contractor, and I work from home as a full time Senior Estimator.
I also serve with love as the treasurer and deacon at FBC for the last ten years.
In my limited spare time, I enjoy woodworking, watching a good mystery movie, remodeling projects, reading, vacations in Minnesota, and spending quiet times with God.
My love for the Lord continues to grow with each new day that presents itself with the trials of life, and the belief that being thankful to God thru it all surely makes the difference!
Embracing what God does for us is the best thing we can do for Him; it's much too easy to just think as the world would like us to believe. That is, that you and I can easily fit into the lies, without even thinking about how we are sliding downward towards being ungrateful people.
Lets try to fix our attention on God...and you'll see an amazing change that can happen within you!
Be ready to recognize what the Lord wants from you, and don't hesitate to respond to him!
Listen and hear how He is calling you and be prepared to fight what may be dragging you down to the levels of worldly immaturity.
Allow him to bring the absolute best out of you, a maturity that surpasses man's understanding!
Thankfulness Releases Many Blessings,
Deacon Rich Winn
