Kurt Wallace — the new state representative for House District 42, covering Chilton County and part of southern Shelby County — joined Ebenezer Baptist Church right after he and his wife were married there in 1975. He has taught Sunday School for more than 20 years and was ordained a deacon in 1999.

Q: How did you come to know the Lord?
A: Daddy is a Baptist pastor (Aubrey Wallace), so I grew up in a Christian home. But we were living in Redlands, Calif., at the time I was saved. ... It was on a Sunday night in July 1969 when the Lord got me, and when He got me, He got me hard. I had a grip on the back of the pew, and I didn’t think I could let loose of it. But once I let loose, I couldn’t get down the aisle quick enough.

Q: How have you been involved in church through the years?
A: I’ve been a Training Union director and a Sunday School director. I’m currently a Sunday School teacher, chairman of the deacons, a member of the choir and a Gideon speaker.

Q: What have you gotten from that involvement?
A: Just a huge sense of family. There is no substitute for my church family. I love them and I know they love me. When you’re struggling, they lift you up in prayer. And when people lift you up in prayer, it’s an awesome thing.

Q: What does the Christian life mean to you?
A: It’s all about service and I’ve seen firsthand that God has blessed me in anything I’ve used in serving Him and my church.
