“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15
The Trustees are the stewards of the finances and facilities of the Church. The Trustee Board is responsible for making sure the various ministries and church entities are remaining fiscally responsible, and to the maintenance, betterment, and security of the facilities of the church. Below are the current Trustees at FCC. Please pray for them to be good stewards of First Christian Church’s resources.
Meet our Trustees
David and Linda Aikins first came to FCC at the invitation of Coach Fambrough. They immediately felt at home and continued to attend after the loss of Coach. They look upon the church members and family and are willing to do everything they can to keep the family together. Dave recently retired from owning Lawrence Decorating for 48 years with his partner, Gary Schmidtberger. Linda works at Grandstand Glassware + Apparel in Lawrence. Together they have five children and nine grandchildren and enjoy spending as much time as they can with them. David graduated from Erie High School in Erie KS, where he was an outstanding athlete in football, basketball, and track. After graduation, he played football at KU from 1965-1970. He looks upon those years as very special and maintains contact with his teammates. Linda graduated from Ashland High School in Ashland KS and moved to Lawrence in 1980. Dave and Linda have been together for 14 years. Dave served as a trustee from 2012 to 2016 and agreed to serve again this session. David and Linda volunteer as servers at church; helpers with Bible School; eager participants in Trunk or Treat and look forward to future activities at the Church.
I was raised in the Shelton Memorial Christian Church in Ulysses, Kansas, and baptized in 1972 at the age of 13. When I was 14, my father passed away, and I slowly fell away from Christ. I moved to Lawrence in 1984 and worked for the Journal World for 30 years. In 1988 I met my wife Lisa. Pastor Goodman married us in 1999, but not before he required us to attend church six times and also attend marriage classes. Going to church those six times really turned me back to Christ, helped me make peace with the passing of my father, develop a closer relationship with Christ, and begin to trust His will even when I don’t understand or know
where it is leading.

Linda (my wife) and I came to FCC about 5 years ago. We were searching for a new church home. We immediately felt at home here and loved that FCC is a place that nurtures our souls. I grew up in a Christian home and professed my faith as a late teen. God has truly watched over and blessed me all these years. I have recently semi-retired from the business world and look forward to spending more time with family, grand children, and finding more ways to become involved at First Christian Church.
