    Larry is a graduate of Spencerville High School in 1964.  He married his wonderful wife Judy in 1966.  Larry and Judy have 3 grown children (Ann, David and Lynette) and 9 grandkids.  Larry is a lifelong farmer and also works part time for Hill's Supply.  Larry was first introduced to Youth for Christ when his kids were in high school and he joined the YFC Board in 1994.  He loves knowing that Youth for Christ gives unchurched kids the chance to learn about Jesus, many of which, for the first time.  Larry loves YFC and wants to see middle school and high school students give their lives to Jesus.
