Larry Branch, Senior Adult Director
 
A native of Sanford, NC.,  I attended Grace Chapel Christian Church and was born again April 12, 1964.
 
I graduated from Appalachian State University and taught at eleven different schools in Ashe County, teaching mostly elementary physical education and coaching various sports teams.  I remained with the school system for 31 years.  I have been a budget counselor, trained by Crown Financial Ministries, for 23 years and also a real estate salesman and broker.  I was employed by Samaritans Purse to work with Operation Christmas Child.
 
I am married to Judy, who is an Ashe County native.  We have two children.  Monica teaches at Westwood Elementary in West Jefferson and Allison is a medical assistant in Raleigh.  We have one grandson, Blake, who is in kindergarten at Westwood.
 
I enjoy playing golf and watching college athletics.
 
I have been on staff at Bald Mountain for six years and count it a blessing to minister with such caring servants of the Lord, both staff and the seniors that I serve with.  The seniors do a great job of ministering to those inside of the church and also those who are outside of our fellowship.
