ELDERS
Hayward Blanton
        Hayward and Betty Blanton were born and raised in Kentucky. Hayward came from a family of nine children and Betty from a family of six children. Betty was brought up by parents and grandparents who were members of the Lord's Church. In fact, Betty is a fourth generation member of the Church of Christ on her mother's side of the family and a third generation member on her fatherís side.
        Hayward was converted from a religious denomination to Christ, at the age of twenty four after careful Bible study and the influence of a Christian wife. He served as a deacon for about ten years and has been serving in the eldership for about thirty years in 2013, due to the blessings of the Lord and a Christian wife.
        Hayward and Betty have three sons and daughters-in-law, all of whom are members of the Lord's church. The majority are members of the Hamburg Pike congregation. They have 11 grandchildren, ages 7 to 22 years, six of whom are members of the Lordís church, making them the 6th consecutive generation in the body of Christ. Precious memories! Thanks to our Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ!

          "This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil."
          "Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless. Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things. Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus." -

1 TIMOTHY 3: 1-13
