Elmore celebrates service in ninth term as BCH Trustee

He is a natural leader who is described as a “go-to person” and one “who gets things done.” He is willing to stand out front but is more than likely seen in the background turning dreams into reality –– for his family, in his community, and with Baptist Children’s Homes (BCH).Born on October 8, 1932 in rural Sampson County, only-child Elmore and his parents moved to the nearby town of Dunn when he was read more

Still a cowboy at heart


I grew up wanting to be a cowboy. The Christmas before my fourth birthday, I received a red and black Roy Rogers cowboy outfit with silver-banded Stetson, cap gun six shooter, and low-slung holster. It was perfect. Yee-ha!My cowboy heroes galloped across the silver screen: Roy riding Trigger, gunslinger Alan Ladd, and war-hero turned movie star Audie Murphy. My imagination popped as I saved the schoolmarm from dastardly villains or shot it out with the town’s bank robbers. The simple life of the read more

He lives!


What a joy it is to celebrate a risen Savior every Easter! In the Gospel of John, Jesus refers to Himself as the Good Shepherd and speaks of how the Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. This is exactly what happened when Christ willingly allowed Himself to be crucified for His flock — for you and for me. Three days later, miraculously, Jesus rose from the grave. He lives!Like lost sheep, children regularly come to Baptist Children’s Homes (BCH) in search of safe pasture. And when boys read more
