My name is Joe Durnin and I am one of the Laurel Church of Christ’s elders charged with the CSC’s oversight. I came to the CSC in 1978 where I met Debra, my wife of 39 years. We were both active with the CSC and consider that time to be a cornerstone period of our faith. We remain close to many of our friends from that time and in fact we have raised our children (3) with many of those friends and their families’. As an elder at Laurel, I am continually encouraged by the relationship between Laurel and the students at the CSC , a ministry begun by UT/Laurel students over 60 years ago.
