Sullivan, Alvin C. comment (0)
March 3, 2011
Alvin C. Sullivan, pastor of Kushla-Bethany Baptist Church, Eight Mile, died Feb. 9. He was 82.
Sullivan served the Mobile Baptist Association church for 53 years and “never missed a Sunday,” said Mack Morris, friend and pastor of Woodbridge Baptist Church, Mobile.
Sullivan was a pastor for 55 years, two of those spent at Four Points Baptist Church, near Mobile.
A native of Sims Chapel, Sullivan served in the military in his youth and returned to study at Bob Jones University in Greenville, S.C. While in college, Sullivan felt called to be a pastor.
Active in the Mobile Association, Sullivan preferred to be known as “a pastor and that’s it,” his daughter Ruth Anne said. He was not one for frills and special recognitions but took pride in the responsibility of leading his church.
Sullivan is survived by his wife of 60 years, Dolores; two daughters and two grandchildren. (TAB)
