Carl (Mac) McMurray started in 1976 preaching and teaching in local churches in Iowa, Nebraska, Florida, Tennessee, and Indiana. Since 2004 he has labored with the Anderson church of Christ in Anderson, Indiana.  His work in certain local congregations has included serving as an elder, and directing intern programs for young preachers.  He has trained eight young men over the years, all eight of which are currently continuing to labor full time in gospel preaching.

McMurray has spent over 36 years preaching full time including over a dozen trips to the Philippines, Russia, Ukraine, and Africa where he has assisted in scouting, church planting, teaching, food distribution to Christians, and follow-up. 

Mac has 17 years of experience on live call-in radio, as well as hosting a cable TV program, and some live call-in television programming over the years. Visit the Anderson church of Christ  WEBSITE  to listen to his most recent radio programs.  He also worked with his daughter to produce a pre-evangelism DVD to introduce the church at Anderson to the community, and a side note is that Spiritbuilding provided the sound system for that project.

Besides being Chief Muckety Muck of Spiritbuilding, Mac also works hard with the everyday goings-on of the company, although he would tell you that without the help of his team of Lorna, Sarah, various proofers, Jamey Hinds as typesetter, and great authors, he couldn’t do a thing. His artistic talents are a plus when he’s designing covers, or typesetting books and publications.

Some other irons in McMurray’s fire would include editing the Spiritbuilding blog MORNING COFFEE  which he says he’s always behind on, and overseeing a website on foreign evangelism, found at www.evangelismupdate.com. He also is a co-director of Open Hearts Helping Hands, an organization that assists and helps feed New Testament Christians in Zimbabwe.You can learn more of this group at www.OpenHeartsHelpingHands.com.

He and his wife Lorna, of 38 years, consider themselves blessed to have been kept busy serving the Lord in teaching efforts and outreach, from two-year-olds to adults, in this country and overseas. They have two children, Sarah and Forrest, and a beautiful daughter-in-law Terri to make three faithful Christian children. A sweet genius of a grand-daughter, Willow Grace, and a handsome grandson Silas Graham are just icing on his cake..
