They have three adult children who are all actively serving the Lord and twin toddlers who keep them very busy! In their free time, they like to ride mountain bikes, dirt bikes, and water ski. Mack and Nancy love most to spend time with their family and their church family. They have a heart for children at risk on our mountain and work closely with our local Foster Agency.
