Curtis has served as a non-staff elder since 2005. He has a bachelor’s degree in English and he says the reason he studied English is because, “I enjoyed the analytical part of my English major—the skills I developed to analyze and understand different world views and approaches to life. While I read lots of material, I was more interested in writing ‘position papers’ that compared and contrasted thoughts and ideas.”
Curtis feels three spiritual gifts give him the greatest joy: administration, teaching, and encouragement. And he has recently been able to use these gifts as an elder, montor, and as a LifeGroup coach and leader.
Curtis and his wife Kathy have three grown boys, two daughter-in-laws, two grandsons and a granddaughter. They have been a part of Mill Creek since 1997. Curtis is development director of The Crecer Foundation.
Curtis says that, if he could, he would love to meet Francis Schaeffer: “His books have impacted me a great deal. His ability to analyze the culture and his passion to communicate the Truth of the gospel would be exciting to discuss with him.”
