In October 1997, Port Royal Baptist church asked former Campbellsburg Christian Church pastor Carl Rucker to serve as their interim pastor.
They asked him to serve while they looked for a new pastor. Two weeks into his temporary stay, Rucker was approached again.
“In the second week in November, they said ‘would you stay with us through December,’ to which I responded that I would,” Rucker said. “About the middle of December, they asked if I would stay with them through 1998.”
