Bittick marks 25 years with Denton Association

DENTON--In the modern mobile society, long-term employees are rare. Long-term volunteers may be rarer still, but Janie Bittick has served Denton Baptist Assocition as its associational clerk 25 years.

"I really love it," she said. "Staying after it for 25 years, I've gotten to meet and know a lot of saints--a few sinners, but mostly saints--and they have inspired me greatly on my journey."

The experience also has given her a bit of historical perspective, as far as the work of the association goes.
