Dan Gillespie (far left)

Dan is a family man - He has been married to his wife Ronda since 1979. They met while they were both furthering their education at Ozark Bible College, marrying after their junior year and moving to the Orleans/Mitchell area a year later. They have four adult, married children. Dan said this about family, "So I guess that you could say that we have eight children because we love them all as though they were ours, also." Ronda and Dan also have nine grandchildren, making their lives a little bit more busy. They have been attending TSCC since the early to mid 90's. Dan is employed with Walmart, at the store in Bloomington, and has been with Walmart almost 22 years. He has also worked with Event Services at IU for the past 13 years. Dan has enjoyed over the years being involved in coaching kids from pee wee leagues on up at the Mitchell Youth Leagues, he has a real passion for young children and seeing them grow up in learning about Jesus. He truly enjoys talking with and having fellowship with people, and as an elder, he strives to help folks through visits, prayers, and being there during good times and hard times.
