Mike Bertram, Deacon of Ushers

I came to know Christ at a youth retreat during my freshman year in high school.  My wife and I moved to Louisville to attend seminary in 2003, and we joined Clifton that year as well.  We are blessed with four children, Micah, Abby, Haley and Owen.  I currently own my own business doing interior and exterior painting.  We are so blessed to be at a church like Clifton and it is my joy to serve the body by being a Deacon of Ushering.

I grew up hearing the gospel at home and at church, and placed my hope and trust in Jesus at age 9. My wife and I have lived in Louisville our entire lives and were married after our sophomore year of college. We love being parents to our two young children.  I work as an actuary at a local insurance company. My role as deacon of finance involves making sure Clifton’s financial statements are produced accurately and overseeing the budgeting process.

James White, Deacon of Building

I came to know the Lord quite a few years ago.  I can’t choose the day that I felt that I was saved or belonged to the Lord until my pastor at our previous church suggested that I should go forward.  We discussed it, and I prayed about it and knew that I had faith and trust in Jesus and should be baptized as a profession of that faith.  This was several years before moving to Louisville.  I now serve as deacon at Clifton, helping to care for our building.

Jeremy Rhoden, Deacon of Ordinances

I grew up in a home where the Gospel was proclaimed and lived.  Around age 5 or 6, the Lord began to draw me to Him and save me.  I was baptized in my teenage years.  Over the years, the blazing need for Christ has only become more evident.  And over the years, His grace has been more and more sufficient.  I’m humbled to be married to my lovely wife and to be a father to our four children.  The preaching and fellowship of Clifton Baptist Church have graced my life since 2000.
