Pastor Morgan has been active with NAACP over years past. He is a man of prayer, sound faith and is known as a pillar founded by our Lord and Savior Jesus to follow the direction of Christ for the Church Family and the community.
Some of the youngest members have been with the Church for over 40 years. Others have been members for more than 60 years.
