Small in number, but mighty in the Lord


YPSILANTI – I was 5 years old as I watched Godly men work on the building of North Prospect Baptist Church block by block. This church was built in 1957.


I have many personal feelings, happy memories, and lots of love within the walls of this very building. My parents raised my brother, sisters and myself in this church. I was married here, and raised my own family here. My three daughters were saved and baptized here.


God called me to be a deacon in 1974 and I served as a deacon until 2018. At that time I felt a calling to preach. I met that call as my church voted me to be their pastor.


My journey as pastor of this church has been blessing after blessing. I feel in my heart that God is not through at North Prospect. I foresee that God has great and mighty things ahead for this very church.


I pray he will show me this vision (Jeremiah 33:3). The congregation here is very loving and God-fearing people. My prayer is that God will give me the wisdom to lead His people to build his church in the way he desires.


Our congregation is small, older and slightly handicapped, but I know with God's help we can do wonderful and mighty things. Many other things could be said about this congregation; they are very friendly, loving and a very generous and giving group of people. Small in number, but mighty in their love for the Lord. I love this church and I thank God every day for calling me to preach and also calling me to be the pastor of North Prospect Baptist.
