9. Board of Directors

Sherry Smith

From Richvale,  Sherry is the president of North State Diving, and brings a wealth of practical experience running an office and a business in California.

Al Mauer

Al lives in Oroville, and has been visiting California State Prisons for years, and has a real burden to share the hope of God’s Word with the incarcerated.  He began been meeting with two Butte County Jail inmates as a CJM for months before we brought him onto the ARM board.  He has experience with Facebook, and a desire to get the word out about the opportunity we provide local churches and volunteers to make disciples of inmates in Butte County.  His financial experience allows him to serve us well as our treasurer.

Pastor Allan Dikes

Allan pastors the Open Door Church on Baldwin and Washington in Oroville, and works closely with the Oroville Rescue Mission, the Hope Center, and Jordan Crossing Ministries.  His passion for “the least of these” is evident in all he does, and his networking skills connects us with many other like-minded ministries and individuals.  He also brings web skills to help us keep our web site current and serves as Chairman of the ARM Board.

Leroy & Vicky Myrick

Leroy serves as Vice-Chair of the ARM Board, and Vicky, as Board Secretary. The highlight of their week is the inmate ministry program at the Butte County Jail on Thursday evenings. They are passionate followers of Christ, addressing the inmates’ spiritual needs and fulfilling the Great Commission of Christ; “go and make disciples of all nations… teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20) They also spend time visiting and sharing Jesus with the homeless in Chico and Oroville with empathy and compassion.  No one is outside God’s grace and Christ’s deliverance, including the poor, the oppressed, the needy, the lost, and the prisoner. We are the hands and feet of Jesus, and are called to do as Jesus did; “bind up the broken hearted… proclaim freedom to the captives, and release from darkness to the prisoners“. (Luke 4:18-20, Isaiah 61:1-2)

Leroy and Vicky Myrick live in Paradise.
