Born in Quincy, Ill., Clair grew up in Liberty, Ill., until moving with his family to Albuquerque when he was 16. Following his graduation from Valley High School in 1964, he married fellow Valley alumnus Conni Weaver, who had been born, born again and reared in Albuquerque.

     Clair spent the final two years of his Army enlistment, from 1966-69, as a chaplain’s assistant. It was during that time, he says, that a seed was sown in his heart for ministry. After working in the finance business in New Mexico for 10 years and serving as a deacon at Paradise Hills Baptist Church, Clair was ordained to the gospel ministry and served the church as administrator, associate pastor and principal of Paradise Hills Christian School.

     Clair was called to be camp pastor/counselor of Cross Roads Range Christian Family Camp and Retreat Center in North Dakota in 1992 and as pastor of First Baptist Church, Langdon, N.D., in 1994. He pastored the church in Bernalillo from 1996 until 2010, when he was called to be pastor of Nelsonville Baptist Church, Ewing, Mo., which he led until returning to New Mexico.

     God blessed the Clairs with three children: Timothy, who lives with his wife, Theresa, in North Carolina; Catherine, who lives with her husband, Brett, and their two children in New Mexico; and Jonathan, who was born with many physical challenges and died at age 6.
