Hi I'm Vince

I'm Vince. I teach high school Spanish, I coach football. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have taught high school Spanish for over 20 years. During this time I have coached various sports; football, baseball, track, and swimming. I always knew I wanted to be a coach, at some level. I enjoy outdoor sporting events, concerts, and going to the movies. I love to spend time with my children, they are growing up, so the time I get to spend with them is more and more precious.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. Growing up in a small town in VA where my family and I were the only members was interesting. The closest members lived some 30 miles from our little town, and we had to travel 50 miles one way to church each Sunday. I appreciate my parents' example of not using our long drive as an excuse to not go to church. I suppose it is easy when one is young to follow the example of one's parents and simply tag along for the ride. However, once adulthood is reached, it becomes time to start making decisions for oneself. I continue to attend church and participate because of my parents' examples AND because I choose to do so myself.

How I live my faith

Throughout my life in the church I have had the opportunity to serve in many different callings. Each one teaches and reinforces distinct gospel principles. I enjoy serving others and look for opportunities to accomplish this both inside and outside the church.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon provides us with another testament of the divinity of Jesus Christ by telling the history of the inhabitants of the American continent before, during, and after Christ's mortal ministry here on the earth. It also provides an account of Christ's visit to the people who lived on the American continent, so they too could see, hear, and know for themselves He is the savior and redeemer of all mankind.
