First Person: Paige Patterson, the SBC, and Me (too)

I remember well the first time I met Paige Patterson. He came to preach at the annual area-wide Bible conference at my home church, Glendale Baptist in Bowling Green, at the invitation of our long-time pastor, Richard Oldham (a conference where I also met Albert Mohler, Richard Land, Hershael York, and a host of other SBC personalities for the first time). I even remember what he preached on (four views of the Lord's Supper). This was in January of 2000. I was 15. I went up to him afterward and had him sign my Scofield Reference Bible, which I proudly carried for everyone to see. I knew of his legendary status in Southern Baptist life even at that young age.

20-something pastor, wife see foster care as calling

Hazel—For Hailey Roach and her husband Jordan, pastor of Hazel Baptist Church, foster care is a calling and has been since before she and Jordan married three years ago. The turning point for Jordan in this calling, however, came after observing the family situations he saw many of the children the couple brings to church on buses.
