Don was born and raised in Dothan, AL and came to faith in Christ at the age of 13 while a member of the Headland Avenue Baptist Church Dothan.
He is married to Peggy Richter Mills and they have two grown sons Brian and Alan. Upon marrying Peggy, he moved his membership to Calvary Baptist Church in 1983 where he has served as a LG teacher, deacon and elder.
In his spare time, Don enjoys bike riding, reading, taking trips to the Smoky Mountains and watching Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies over and over and over.
“As an elder of Calvary Baptist Church, I believe one of my primary functions is to help shepherd the flock as outlined in 1 Peter 5:1-3. As in any shepherding, there has to be a love for the people that make up Calvary Baptist Church for the people are the church.”
The Bible verse that best describes my relationship with Christ is based on Ephesians 2:4-5 that speaks of God’s mercy, great love and grace.
“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ – by grace you have been saved.”
