Family Black

Joined 5 years ago from Dallas, Texas




Alan & Karen have two beautiful daughters, Elisabeth & Mary. We researched and found a motto for the surname Black, "Non Crux, sed lux", which translates as, "Not the cross, but its light". We like it and had shirts made for the photo last year.

Dr Black entered ministry in 1985 while earning a BA in Theology, MA in Ministry, and Doctorate in Ministry. Dr. Black has served in positions of Youth Pastor, Associate Pastor, Church Planter and Senior Pastor. Dr. Black worked with Baptist ministries in Utah to assist numerous new church plants along the Wasatch Front.
