Bro Thomas and Sis Doris Smith were married in October, 1965, and they began preaching soon thereafter. They began pastoring in 1971; they've now been in pastoral ministry for just over 43 years. They also evangelized for 8 -- 9 years.
Bro Thomas and Sis Doris are natives of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. They have 3 children (2 sons and a daughter), 9 grandchildren, and 16 great grandchildren.
Bro Thomas encourages the church to win the lost to Christ by telling them, "If you don't aim at something, you will get what you aim at everytime -- nothing."
