Jimmy returned to serve on the Board of Elders in June 2002. He previously served on the Board for 13 years, during which time he served as chairman for two years. He and his wife Chambliss began attending McLean Bible Church in 1974 soon after they moved into the area. Both were young Christians eager to grow in the Lord. The teaching and service opportunities at MBC have been critical to their and their family’s Christian growth. They have also had the opportunity to minister with parachurch organizations, including Jimmy’s service on boards of three area Christian organizations. The Mitchells have two sons, two wonderful daughters-by-marriage and six grandchildren.
