On August 25, 2019 after serving at Woodridge Baptist for 19 years, Morris will finish his ministry there. He will continue in ministry by assisting other churches with building programs and serving as a transitional pastor. He and his wife, Kathy, also plan to do some traveling and spend time together and with their three children and two grandchildren.
