Taylor is emblematic of a “Quiet Disciple”.  As one of our lay speakers, Taylor unhesitatingly steps in to deliver Sunday morning messages on short notice – and not only for our congregation, but at other churches in the district as well.  He is actively involved in Methodist Men and participates in every men’s group activity to include helping prepare our Valentine’s Day prime rib dinner and Palm Sunday breakfast.  Taylor is instrumental in the organization of our Emmaus group to include serving as an Emmaus board member and table leader.  Taylor, along with his wife Millie, routinely host events at their house and act as de-facto grandparents for many youth in the congregation who are geographically separated from their own kin.  As a servant of Christ, Taylor is selfless in expressing love for his neighbor.
