First Baptist Church
I was saved and baptized at the age of 16 through the ministry ofRiverside Baptist Church, New Orleans, LA. I was called by God to preach His word in 1975. That year I was licensed to preach by Parkview Baptist Church of Laurel, MS, and then ordained one year later by the same church.
Since 1978 I have served 8 Southern Baptist churches as Pastor in bothMississippi and Florida. For the past 10years I have been the pastor of First Baptist Church, Clara, MS.
Style of Preaching:
I consider myself to be an expository preacher in that at least the major points of my sermon should come directly from the selected passage of Scripture. Since I believe the Bible to be God breathed I also believe that it contains the power to change lives. For the past 39 years of preaching ministry here and in many other countries of the world I have sought to share with others the inexhaustible truths of God’s Word.
