Currently, he is the proud owner of a Harley Davidson Road King.
And after close to 45 years in the world of education, Church can now use the term "riding off into the sunset" literally.
The long-time school administrator and former Northview High School principal officially announced his retirement as principal from Greencastle High School during the school corporation's school board meeting Wednesday.
"I was going to wait until the end of the year, but it was time to make it known," Church said.
Church said he spoke with Greencastle Community Schools Supt. Bob Green on Jan. 5 about his plan to retire.
He said the for sale sign went up by his house Thursday morning.
"I wanted the board to know first," Church said.
Clay Community School Corporation Supt. Dan Schroeder never worked with Church, but said he was sure he'd be missed.
"I think he was well liked here," Schroeder said.
Church was born in Coalmont and graduated from Linton High School. He also spent time in Navy following graduation.
On Thursday, Church told The Brazil Times he and his wife Brenda recently purchased a home in Cape Coral, Fla., and plan to move there at the conclusion of the school year.
"My wife and I have been going there for a number of years during Christmas and Spring Breaks," Church said. "We love the beach."
Church said he and his wife plan to spend plenty of time near Ft. Myers Beach in the future.
Church, who will turn 70 in July, began his career in education in 1965 as the band director at West Vigo High School.
From there, he served as band director at Indiana State University from 1967-73 before going back to school to receive licenses to serve as a counselor, principal and superintendent.
After spending a year at Woodrow Wilson Middle School in Terre Haute, Church served as Dean of Boys at West Vigo before heading to Greencastle to serve as principal of the high school.
Church then spent time as assistant principal at Terre Haute South High School before coming home to serve as assistant principal and principal at Northview.
Church then went back to Greencastle as principal.
"I kind of made a little circle there," he said, pointing out that his first job as a principal was at Greencastle.
After close to 45 years in education, Church said he will miss working with students.
"The kids are at the top of the list," Church said. "I'll have to find me some kind of job. I can't just sit around.
"I will miss the kids. I love being around them."
