Pastor McClure has served on numerous Boards and Committees within the Church of God along with serving as the PTA president of several schools, president of CACPC, vice chairman of Dallas Bay Volunteer Fire Department, and other community positions in recent years.   

He is married to the former Sherri Parson of Mosinee, Wi.  They have been married for over 33 years. The McClure's have two children, Sara of Soddy Daisy and Jonathan who serves as a Lieutenant in the U.S. Army stationed at Fort Eustis, Virginia.  

Pastor McClure has led the church in multiple new ministry opportunities that focus on the community.  Multiple partnerships have been formed in order to accomplish ministry.  Some of these partnerships include Ganns Middle Valley School, Dallas Bay Volunteer Fire Department, Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, and various other groups.  In particular, Pastor McClure has led the church to be a major supporter of an orphanage in Cusuna, Honduras.  In addition to these programs, he led the church in various building projects since 1997.
