McCoy Memorial Baptist Church is celebrating its 75th Church Anniversary on Sunday, November 28, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. The Theme for this auspicious occasion is “Going Beyond the Walls.”
The McCoy Memorial Baptist Church has served the Los Angeles community since its birth in 1935. The McCoy Church Family has had only three Shepherds: Rev. J. A. H. Eldridge; Dr. E.A. Anderson, and our current Pastor, Dr. R.A. Williams, Jr. Since its inception, the McCoy Memorial Baptist Church has strived to serve the Los Angeles community, spreading the good news through song, preaching, and teaching. Our current shepherd, Dr. Robert Williams, Jr. is a world renowned preacher and teacher, and has spoken at numerous venues, from the National Baptist Convention to the Keswick Conference in England. He also co-founded and is the current President of WHW Ministries, which hosts its annual “The Methods of Expository Preaching and Teaching” Conference each October. The Conference has thrived over the past twenty years, growing from a core group of 30 ministers to over 1200 participants and students.
Our Guest speaker for this momentous occasion will be none other than Dr. A. Louis Patterson, Jr., Senior Pastor for the past 36 years of the Mount Corinth Missionary Baptist Church located in Houston, Texas. He is recognized internationally as a leading expository preacher. He has been recognized three times by his peers as a “Living Legend” and has lectured to the Ministers’ Division of the National Baptist Congress of Christian Education of the National Baptist Convention, USA for the last 19 years. In the November 1993 issue of Ebony Magazine, he was honorably mentioned as one of AMERICA’S GREATEST BLACK PREACHERS, and inducted into the Morehouse School of Religion’s Hall of Preachers. Pastor Patterson has pastored churches in California and Texas, and authored books, “Prerequisites for a Good Journey,” “Joy for the Journey,” and “Wisdom in Strange Places.”
