Leadership

Home
Preacher Don Adkins is a native of West Virginia.  He graduated from Logan High School in 1969 and immediately joined the navy where he spent the next twenty-three years.  He married Brenda, his high school sweetheart in 1970 and they have been together ever since.  They have two children, Chad and Stacy.  Chad is the youth and family minister at Central and Stacy is married to a preacher and they live in Whitehouse, Tennessee. Don and Brenda also have five grandchildren.  Don has a rich heritage in churches of Christ.  His father and grandfather were both song leaders in churches in southern West Virginia and Kentucky.
His great grandfather was a gospel preacher.  He and Brenda also have a rich heritage at Central.  Although Don grew up in Churches of Christ, he didn't obey the gospel until the summer of 1983 while stationed at Port Canaveral and attending Central.
After his retirement from the navy in 1992, Don finished his BS degree in Sociology from the University of the State of New York and decided to enter the ministry.  The whole family moved to the plains of West Texas where he and Brenda both attended and graduated from the Sunset International Bible Institute in Lubbock in 1994.  At that time, Central was looking for a new preacher and Don and Brenda were ask to begin their new work in June of 1994.  He and Brenda have served the Central church continuously since then.
