  • The ending was foretold in the beginning

    In the summer of 1979, I began conversations with five men — Robert Moore, Andrew Johnson, Edward Mitchell, Douglas Payton and Ben Coomes — that would ultimately lead to my serving for more than 38 years as pastor of the Eminence Baptist Church.
    The years I’ve spent in this community and with Eminence Baptist Church have blessed me and shaped me more than I have blessed or shaped the community.
    I cherish this marvelous relationship which came to an end on April 8, 2018.
    One does not spend 38-plus years with one church merely because one wants to do so.
