Did you know that 111 donors (individuals, couples and families)…
The couple, married for 58 years, attended Central Christian College, now Oklahoma Christian University, during its final year in Barttlesville, Okla. Dave Harvill played basketball for the school and DeAnna Harvill worked for professor Bailey McBride, now The Christian Chronicle’s editor emeritus.
Dave and DeAnna HarvillThree of their sons graduated from Oklahoma Christian and two grandchildren currently attend the university.
Dave Harvill spent 37 years working as a salesman, manager and consultant for Johnson & Johnson, while DeAnna Harvill worked as an administrative assistant and trainer for one of the company’s subsidiaries, Ethicon.
The couple has traveled across the country but remained involved in church each place they lived. Dave Harvill served as an elder for more than 20 years. DeAnna Harvill taught children, teen girls and women’s Bible classes. She also taught how to minister to others as part of Stephen Ministries.
The Harvills now worship with a congregation in Farmington Hills, Mich. They have supported the Chronicle for 26 years.
When did your connection with the Chronicle begin?
DeAnna: We learned about the Chronicle through Oklahoma Christian College. We were delighted to find a paper that reported on different congregations throughout the world, since we had lived in several states and were exposed to various world ministries. We appreciate how the Chronicle addresses sensitive and moral issues fairly. Our favorite feature is Dr. McBride’s monthly Insight column.
Why have you chosen to donate for 26 years?
We have donated to the Chronicle because we believe it has an important purpose: to inform, to encourage and to edify.
We want everyone who wants the paper to be able to receive it, whether or not they can pay for it.
