An Oklahoma Mason


Registered User
Greetings. My name is Tim Israel. My site ID is dad.israel, a name from a number of years as a DeMolay dad. I am from Elk City, in western Oklahoma along Interstate 40.
My masonic involvement arose because my wife joined the Order of the Eastern Star and thought I should become a Mason. That was almost 30 years and hundreds of dues cards ago. I am a member of most of the "Masonic bodies" which meet in Oklahoma. I am a past master of 2 lodges, Elk City & Erick (WM in Erick again). I have been very active in the York Rite, on both a local and state level. I am currently the Grand Junior Warden for Knights Templar of Oklahoma and an officer in the Council of Kadosh line at the Guthrie Consistory, AASR.
Professionally, I am an attorney in private practice. I operate Sagebrush, Inc. in Sayre, OK, which provides housing and jobs for adults who are developmentally disabled. Also, I pastor a small United Methodist Church in Canute, OK.
I am married to Jan, who is a past Worthy Matron of OES. I helped Jan start a Rainbow Assembly in Elk City, where she is the founding Mother Advisor. After my law partner and I started a DeMolay Chapter, it only seemed fair to give the girls an opportunity for Masonic Service and a real connection to the Masonic Family.
I am looking forward to these forums. I love to read others thoughts on Masonic topics. I tend to share my thoughts verbally and probably not enough back in a forum. I will seek to do better here.

Welcome from Chickasha OK. I use to live up there and worked at North Fork Correctional Facility. There is a brother, still EA that lives in Elk City. He may need help, is it ok if I send him your way?
