After graduating from high school, he went to Tennessee Temple to train for future ministry. This is where he met his wife, Kim. Kim’s testimony was heavily related to her parents. Her dad, Dr. Pat Creed, had accepted the Lord while she was very young. They moved to Chattanooga to attend Tennessee Temple in the late 60s and early 70s. Dr. Creed was asked to take the bus ministry when M.J. Parker, the director, suffered a stroke and Kim was thrust into ministry at a young age. Dr. Creed then became the pastor of a church in Clinton, Maryland. When Kim was 13, she led the children’s church ministry and had her own bus route.
