Our Shepherds


Dwight and Mary Lea became members of the Pitman Road in 1969. They were married in 1961 and have two adult children and eight grandchildren: Todd and his wife Jeannie reside in Panama City, FL, and have a son and three daughters; Jana and her husband Ronnie reside in Nashville, TN, and have four daughters. Dwight is a retired Physical Education teacher and baseball coach. Mary Lea, also retired, was a Gifted and Talented elementary school teacher. They enjoy their retirement by visiting their children and grandchildren as much as possible!  Dwight and Mary Lea, in their many years here, have served at one time or another in most of our ministries! Mary Lea has been teaching a Women’s Bible Study in their home community for over 30 years. Their focus at this time is nurturing their personal relationships with our members. Dwight is our longest serving elder, having been appointed in 1991. Dwight and Mary Lea are often called upon for their wisdom by many members of our church family.
