"I accepted Christ into my life on 12/20/81 after attending Shandon Baptist Church where Anne grew up. I had no interest in church or God for the previous 20 years - I thought my life was in order. When confronted with the claims of Christ, I yielded to Him and my life has not been the same since".

Mrs. Dottie Mazur has been faithfully serving as secretary at Harvest for over 30 years. Over the years, Dottie has filled many needs including secretary, treasurer and nursery director. She and her husband, Jim Mazur, have been married for 32 years. On January 12, 1984, Dottie trusted Christ as her personal Saviour.
"I was lost and undone without God's only Son until I was in my early 40's. The only reason that I came to Harvest was to see my son Scott get baptized. Jim and I did not really want to go, but I did not want to disappoint my son. Through this we started attending HBC and I accepted Jesus as my Saviour in January of 1984. This was the most important day of my life. I'm so glad that Jesus Christ led me to Harvest. Gayle Autry led me to the Lord in the nursery at Harvest - my life has never been the same."

He was gloriously saved at Faith Baptist Camp in Resaca, Georgia. He currently serves in the United States Air Force in the SC Air National Guard as a Master Sergeant (E-7) in Financial Management.
