Lawrence County,  Tennessee, USA

    Representative Barry Doss Spends Time away from his State Job;
    He devotes entire first week of June each year building Churches.

    This content is the full responsibility of this web site, ShoalCreekSage.com.  It provides an expanded observation of Barry Doss' true character, a far cry from                 opposing narrow minded, unfounded, Deceit and Deception.  For the record, it is published here simply as information and certainly not paid                                             advertising.  ShoalCreekSage.com thinks it is sometimes important to openly share virtues of persons whose humility is just naturally anonymous, especially when       such individuals are easy targets for Slander and Libel.  
    The Slide Photos below show the start to finish construction of Gum Springs Missionary Baptist Church.  The project came about through Barry Doss' devotion and     participation with the organization well known as Carpenters for Christ. To know Barry Doss a bit better let's begin with the Mission Statement of the organization           Carpenters for Christ, a group of which Barry Doss is an active member and fellow keeper of the following admonitions;

                                         A gathering of Givers called 'Carpenters for Christ'
                                                                                              THEIR MISSION IS CLEARLY STATED:

   "We are among the thousands of volunteers who answer the call each year to assist a construction need for the Lords work, going anywhere in the world. We         begin our work at home, in our church, our community, in our state and in our nation. We attempt to build the body of Christ world wide through physically               constructing orphanages, shelters and worship centers.
    We are an organization of volunteer men and women committed to Jesus Christ. We pray that every person going on mission trips have made that                         commitment, and if not, they will have the opportunity to do so before they return home.
    We are not sponsored by nor do we receive any financial aid from any particular church or religious denomination. We come from many different faiths and           work in unity and cooperation with established mission organizations. Each person is responsible for his/her own finances for the trip.
    Our only asset is that we are just ordinary men and women who are available to our Lord to be used in any way He wants. We firmly believe that our Lord is           more interested in our availability than our ability. If we make ourselves available God will grant unto us the ability to do His work. Some of our volunteers are         construction men by trade. However, the majority of us come from different professions such as mechanics, farmers, teachers, housewives, doctors, lawyers,         electricians, pastors, plumbers and many others.
    God can use any person who is willing to be used. Knowing that, and because we are in the spotlight as we travel around the world, our expectations of team         members are very high. It is not permissible to use any form of alcohol or tobacco on a mission trip at any time, even while traveling. Each person is expected       to maintain the highest scriptural standards during the trip. If some action is questionable, don’t do it!"

    Barry Doss' participation with Carpenters for Christ happens the first week of June each year whereby he and more than a dozen Lawrence County members gather       at a given location and spend the entire week building a church from the ground up. They often travel hundreds of miles at their own expense.   As the Mission               Statement notes,  Each person is responsible for his/her own finances for the trip.
   We hope Barry Doss is not embarrassed or offended by this exposure of this one aspect of the man whose foremost life calling is to serve God by filling the needs of    others as best he can.  There is no better representation for the citizens of Giles and Lawrence Counties than Barry Doss. 

   The buttons above are to help us remember America well before Political Correctness, back when Patriotism was a matter of pride

   and a God Given Blessing to be an American. . . . .Hopefully these videos  will give you a Spiritual Lift along with fond memories of growing    up and living in The Good Old Days; the time of great patriotic movies, and heroes.  Then came Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino,            Ricky Nelson,  Del Shannon, and countless others that fueled the Revolution of Rock and Roll - just being an American should make us all      want to get up and dance!!!   THE OLD JAIL MUSEUM and CROSSROADS of DIXIE are links to local history and preservation in a major way by local volunteers.
