As a life-long learner, Selby has spent much of his adult years learning about the God of Sacred Scripture, who pursues those He loves. Selby’s evolving passion is to explore God's word and seek to understand how the message of Jesus Christ applies to every facet of life.

Selby and his wife, Angie, live in Painesville, Ohio and have been attending LCC since early 2011. “Angie is the most wonderful person I have met. She is truly a great joy and delight, a marvelous wife and my dearest friend.” The Lord has blessed us with two adult daughters, Connie and Beth, a son-in-law, Paul and two grandchildren Kahlan and Isaac.

Favorite verses: “Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.” Jerimiah 9:23-24 (ESV)
