Occupation: Pastor, Cherry Hill Missionary Baptist Church, Cherry Hill, in Perry County, Arkansas, west across the Arkansas River from Conway, requiring a ferry ride, or an alternative roundabout trip north through Morrilton, which I preferred. [about november 1966] Cherry Hill, Perry, Arkansas
Since 1977, friends have called me Obiwan. This got started with a young co-worker, because we were both Sci Fi and Star Wars fans. I commonly go by Orville Boyd. But this is hard for people to get out, so many call me Orville.

A few friends prefer to call me Boyd, which I also like. I am named Boyd after my Uncle Russell Boyd and like that association. The Boyd family name is an honorable Scottish name, also known as Bute or Buit, a sub-sept of the Stewart clan, which produced the Royal Stewarts of Scotland and England. The name is from the word in the Scots (Northern Anglian) language, originally from medieval French, that also has come into the English language as "butte."

My Kenyan friends and colleagues normally just call me by my initials: OBJ. In my international radio broadcasting in Kenya, I used the radio name O B Jay.

I grew up in Quanah under my dad's tutelage in the radio business. He owned KOLJ, and I tagged along with him from early years. I began working on the air at age 9 and for 4 years I worked on the air, running the end-of-day program, "The Six Twelve and Twenty Show," a request program.

Dad was very big on natural health and we raised a totally organic garden on a half-acre, a quarter of a city block behind our home on 11th Street (US Hwy 287). We three boys worked in the garden, helped dad plant an orchard or fruit and nut trees over the acre of our home and garden plots. We sold vegetables at a stand in front of the house along 287, and were involved in other business ventures, like selling greeting cards and delivering papers. All three of us brothers sold the Grit newspaper, each to our own set of customers.

I distributed the Sunday Oklahoman weekly newspaper. I remember having to get up early, even on snowy, icy winter days, before the rest of the family was up, to roll and bag my papers. I would deliver them on my Cushman Eagle motor scooter, an 8 horsepower motorcycle style scooter, which was very popular among guys in Quanah. Quanah, Texas, was a small place, safe for children to roam and work, and full of opportunities.

I participated in school band from the 5th grade, playing the tenor saxophone. The band was responsible for half-time activities at the school football games. I hated marching and slogging through the mud churned up by the cleats of the football team in the rainy fall. I just wanted to play music. I stuck with it and continued with music and primarily play the saxophone today.

I later added the guitar, bass guitar and others along the way. I ultimately played in various worship bands in several countries and states of the US. I was in rock, blues and jazz bands, as leader of one and co-leader of another, and was worship leader for various churches and gatherings over the years. My folk-rock group (The New Light, playing around Arkansas, USA) and my jazz-pop group (Some Guys, in Kenya) each recorded one album.

We were members of the First Baptist Church, where I was baptized at age 6. I was in graded choir from my earliest memories, and learned music theory there. This was very important in the music foundations that later expanded to singing in various music groups, serving as the music leader for several churches from age 13 on. I was also nurtured in an exploring faith in those early years at First Baptist, and at age 15, felt a call to preach (or ministry that would unfold in various channels and forms as my faith and experience developed).

I actually preached my first sermon at age 13, in the mission church of First Baptist, on the north side of Quanah, called Quanah Baptist Chapel. Our family was already involved in this mission on the north side of Quanah, and I was the regular music leader for the worship services.

Southern Baptist Churches have an annual event called Youth Week, which was an opportunity for youth of the church to be involved in all the church leadership activities as part of their discipleship. My assignment was to preach the evening message in that church, where I was already the regular music leader. Due to my already long experience, I was ordained the week I graduated from High School in Conway, Arkansas. I had already been serving as the pastor of a church for the last two years of High School.

I lived in Quanah, Texas, until about June 1963, when my father and I went to Arkansas to jobs he had arranged for us, as the first stage in a move to Arkansas, where dad and mom had bought a farm. The last year in Quanah, wwe were all listed together as a family in Quanah's city directory for 1962-63.

Before leaving Quanah, from age 12, I had been leading the music in a mission church speonsored by our church of First Baptist Church in Quanah. I also preached my first sermons there in a youth Sunday when I was 13. Not long after we moved to Arkansas, I was serving as the music leader for a small church in Conway, Arkansas, where my father and I opened an electronics service center. At the end of our first year there, before the end of my 10th grade, I expressed a sense of call to full-time Christian service, and stated it was for music and preaching.

My pastor gave me opportunities to [preach and I began getting invitations to other chirches., Near the end of the summer, I was asked to serve a church inn the neighboring county tht met every two weeks. I worked there till I graduated form high school. the church was in Springfield, Arkansas.

"Springfield (Conway County), once the county seat of Conway County, began as the intersection of the Old Cherokee Boundary Line and a principal route of the Western Cherokee in their relocation west of the Mississippi River. The National Road, from St. Genevieve, Missouri, was routed through the area, taking advantage of a large reliable artesian spring. These roads connected the area with developing population centers such as Batesville (Independence County), Clinton (Van Buren County), Lewisburg (Conway County), and Little Rock (Pulaski County)."
-- "Springfield (Conway County)," Encyclopedia of Arkansas History and Culture, http://www.encyclopediaofarkansas.net/encyclopedia/entry-detail.aspx?entryID=6416

I graduated from Conway High School in June 1966.

From the week of graduation, I worked as a disk jockey-announcer and producer at a local radio station in Conway. I later worked at another station in Conway. During the first year of classes in college, I also served as a pastor. But I dropped that after the first year. I worked at the radio station, whatever else I was doing. I was a DJ, but also produced some live-band programs we recorded for Saturday broadcast,. It was a busy time

I had to pay my way through school, and I was living on my own. I later had a similar job at another local station, together with a freight dock job for a trucking company in Little Rock. I was often working 12-16 hours a day, plus taking a full load of classes, and leading my music gourp. I slept when I had to.

In the first week of classes at State College of Arkansas, I met Edith Marie McSwain. We became close and got engaged after two years of school, We waited till she graduated to marry, in August 1970. The first couple of years we participated in the Missionary Baptist Student Fellowship on the campus. I served as pastor of the Cherry Hill Missionary Baptist Church, in Perry County, west across the Arkansas River from Conway.

There was a ferry on Hwy 60 at the river, but because of time and uncertainty, I always took the long way around on US 64 through Plummerville to the west and south to Perryville, county seat of Perry County, then out a few miles west to Cherry Hill. Cherry Hill was a rural community with a couple of small churches. The whole county is rural, with only about 10,000 people.

"Perry County is a county located in the U.S. state of Arkansas. Its population was 10,445 at the 2010 United States Census. The county seat is Perryville. The county was formed on December 18, 1840, and named for Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, naval hero in the War of 1812."

Edith and I and some of our group also became familiar with the Baptist Student Union and began to spend more of our time there. In my second year of college, I organized a Christian folk group called The Folk after I taught myself to play the guitar in my freshman year. Edith was one of the members. The Folk became fairly successful for a year or so.

We went to Daytona Beach one Easter and sang on the beach and in the bandshell. I was there again as a solo act on another trip through the Arkansas Baptist Student Union. Edith and I were there once later as we joined the Arkansas group from our new residence in North Carolina in Easter 1971.

The Folk sang at several events at the BSU and other locales in Central Arkansas. After some members of the group graduated and moved away, I organized a new group as a rock band playing Christian folk and rock songs for the last couple of years I was in UCA. I called this folk-rock band The New Light.

By 1969 I was working at two jobs, sleeping very little and continued to sing and preach every chance I could get. The New Light sang in quite often in churches, youth groups, local music festivals, regional and state events and after-game events for high school and college, especially at the BSU in Conway. We began singing at events across the state.

The New Light was traveling around the state in music programs, mostly at churches or university music events, various BSU events, as well as local events around Conway and Faulkner County. In 1970, The New Light recorded an album, which we sold at our appearances. What a schedule! I continued in school for a ninth semester for the fall of 1970.

In my last couple of years at UCA, I took courses in music theory as electives, three semesters of music studies in small classes with music majors. That was fun and enriching. I took music theory to get a better understanding of chord structure to boost my writing and arranging for songs for The New Light. This was a very enjoyable part of my college experience. I continued with my major in Philosphy and minor in French.

In the French I took the teacher education courses in the French, even though I was not intending to teach. This gave me deeper exposure to French language and culture and honed my skills, which I continued to use for the rest of my life, in international travel, work and study. I later took a course in Commerce in French with the University of the Sorbonne in Paris, thorugh their branch in Nairobi, Kenya. Another enriching and fun experience.

Edith and I got married in August 1970, and were applying for a 2-year volunteer period, where we were assigned to Kenya the next year. The New Light continued when I finished my studies at UCA in January of 1971, and moved to North Carolina for Seminary study.

I had arranged for The New Light to become the official music group of the Arkansas Baptist Student Union, succeeding the first group that had filled this new slot in the BSU work, The Mill Singers. The New Light continued to sing in various Arkansas locales with the BSU, churches and other events after I went to Kenya in August of 1971.

Over the years, Edith and I were involved in overseas work assignments for 36 years. We were in Kenya over the period 1971-1973, then 1976-1997, with short periods in the US every 3 or 4 years.

I was a teacher and methods instructor in the Toronto Institute of Linguistics (TIL) in several summer sessions from 1974 through 1985. I worked there and on the field working with Dr Donald Larson of Bethel University, and TIL in Kenya, Zambia and the US in training sessions for volunteers and missionaries, focusing on language and culture learning methods.

The Toronto Institute of Linguistics was founded in 1949 as part of the Canadian School of Missions and offered intensive language and culture courses training missionaries.

I developed a community-based and culture-oriented Swahili language learning program and implemented progress and competence evaluation formats and conducted similar programs in 7 languages of Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. Over the years I developed methods of self-evaluation and implementation of custom programs in several languages and cultures around Africa, and served as a resource for various cross-cultural training programs and organizations. During our 25 years in Kenya, I wrote, edited and/or translated various resources for language and culture learning and Christian work and life.

Many materials and learning modules were developed for several courses I designed and implemented for cultural oreintation, initially in East Africa, then over many countries and cultures of Africa. I conducted training workshops for orientation coordinators and developers in many language groups of the huge African continent.

Some resources were formally puiblished for broader use and distribution. I was also a guest lecturer at several Universities or Christian seminaries on Culture, Islam, language and culture learning, ethnographic reseach, cultural worldview mapping, Orality and non-literate culture and worldview, and anthropological mission strategy approaches.

----------------------
For many years Orville Boyd Jenkins has been responsible for the language learning and cultural orientation program for Southern Baptists in East Africa. During this time, methods and techniques have changed as newer and better methods have been discovered. Orville Boyd has combined cultural learning and adaptation into the language learning program where he works at the Baptist Language Centre, located at Brackenhurst International Conference Centre, near Limuru, Kenya. He says, "Learning a language means learning a culture."

More recently he has become Area Language Consultant for Africa and has traveled widely on the continent assisting missions in establishing language and orientation programs. As language learning and cultural adaptation have become increasingly more urgent in reaching people, Orville Boyd has developed methods to help those studying language to become more proficient in language and to commicate effectively. He is well qualified to assist new missionaries in developing an attitude which facilitates language and culture learning. This book demonstrates his value as a linguist, and I highly recommend it.

We moved to the Mediterranean island nation of Cyprus, 40 miles from Turkey and 70 miles from Syria, 1998-2001. Then we spent 4 years in Richmond, Virginia, when I was organizing and coordinating a research network on the ethnicities of the world.

I was the first Editor of the Registry of Peoples, a new codeset for ethnicities of the world, designed to enable databases of any form and format to exchange and compare information to gain a more accurate picture of the peoples of the world and the changing factors generation to generation. I directed this project for the first four years from Richmond, Virginia, then continued when we moved to South Africa, from October 2005 to January 2008.

I worked halftime or so on the international people group research while working in more local settings in Eastern Central and Southern Africa with local teams in various countries working on people research and cross-cultural communication strategies. Moving back to the United States, I handed this responsibility to the succeeding editor, Dr Jim Courson, in 2009 after served as Editor for over 7 years before final retirement from service in April 2010.

You can see that from the two charts above, the dual chain of descent joins into my maternal line with Augustus Lafayette West, son of Sarah Mullinax, and his wife Amanda Tatum, daughter of Nancy Elizabeth Mullins, who was the granddaughter of Frances Ann Mullinax.
