Together they have served in almost every area of ministry our church has to offer in their years at Red River, Buddy has led men's ministry, served as Secretary/Treasurer and as an elder before becoming pastor. Tracy has served our church in Administrative duties, children's ministries, and women's ministries. They truly have a heart for our Lord, our church, our community and TO SERVE.
