A True Hero of the SBC
Since then, Higher Ground has grown to 60-70 regular attendees in their primary worship service. They have baptized several, including the man you see in the picture with Pastor David, who now serves as the church caretaker. They have started a food pantry for the community. And they are steadily making improvements to their facility. In addition to their primary worship service, Higher Ground has a Hispanic service (Pastor David preaches with a translator) and a worship service geared toward children. (Their parents must attend as well.)
As one of my colleagues aptly remarked, "This is the guy who should be on the platform at our conventions." Amen and amen.
