As to the brothers Chip and Rick S (for Ed P): I have no idea where they are today. Several years ago, the entire family was based in Florida. As to the Stalnecker mode of transportation in those days, I found another interesting reference on a church history page which can be read here, by scrolling down to 1978: http://www.muldraughhill.org/ChurchHist ... -1984.html
Or here, if you want to read only the relevant excerpt:
"During the week of June 23-July 2, 1978, The Stalneckers conducted revival services here with their music, preaching, and activities for the youth. They traveled in a bus which furnished their living quarters. The group included Ed and Bette Stalnecker, their 2 sons and wives, and 1 grandchi1d. At that time, they had traveled to over 600 Southern Baptist Churches from First Baptist Church in Key West, Fla. to First Baptist Church in Anchorage, Alaska... A special called business meeting was held on July 2, 1978 in which the church decided to purchase the organ (which we now use) from the Stalneckers at a cost of $2600.00..."
Later, Ed personally with the help of Bette and the boys converted a used Greyhound bus into a motor home. Some time later they bought a commercially built unit.

Bette in her fur and evening gown on Saturday night, singing Scarlet Ribbons and her eyes filling with tears and her false eye lash coming loose. Rick was driving a red Mercedes coupe, Chip was all chubby. I remember how they ran up a huge long distance phone bill that the church was not expecting at all....the tour through their Airstream trailer, times sure have changed!!!
All those memories. And from what I understand that church EHBC as well as others really hasn't grown that much in the past 30 years.
Thanks, Mark, for those links! Those were fun to look at.....just makes me feel old, now!

I left INDY to go to college back in 73, after graduation moved to Cincy and have lived in DFW for almost 20 years now. EHBC's former pastor, Otha Winningham had the most influence in my Christian walk and call to ministry.
