Love the people with the Love of God!


    I was raised on a dairy farm in central Indiana, the fifth of five boys born in the family. I received my undergraduate degree from Wilmington College, a Quaker college. My graduate degree is from United Theological School in Dayton, Ohio with an emphasis on Christian Education and family Ministries. My wife, Darlene, is a school teacher in Randolph County and we have three grown children and 5 grandchildren. We have lived and ministered in Friends Meetings (churches) in Ohio and three congregations in North Carolina. I enjoy God’s creation, gardening, fishing, playing with our grandchildren and reading. My wife and I are grateful for the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, His love and tender mercies. We truly serve and awesome God.   


    Archdale Friends Meeting is truly a great place to be! The staff are welcoming, resourceful and always eager to answer questions. We have an active “Young at Heart” ministry for our seniors and have a youth ministry for ages grade 6-12. We are involved in several local outreach projects and have sent teams to help Mission of Hope in Haiti. Our Preschool and after school programs are Christ based and growing.


    Stop in sometime for a visit, come to worship and lets be Friends! 


    Blessings in Christ, Rusty
