Glennís Chapel pastor Perkins marks 60 years in ministrycomment (0)

April 7, 2011


Thomas Perkins, pastor of Glenn’s Chapel Baptist Church, Gardendale, has been in the ministry for 60 years, and he has no plans of stopping there.

Recently the North Jefferson Baptist Association church recognized Perkins’ ministry milestone with a special service that included a message by Director of Missions Steve Loggins and music by the Unity Quartet.

The service also included a slideshow of the places Perkins has served over the years as well as a plaque presented to him on behalf of Glenn’s Chapel Baptist. Following the service, the church had a special time of singing and testimonies.

“I feel so honored that the Lord has chosen me to share His word for so many years in ministry,” Perkins said.

Perkins, who was licensed to preach Jan. 31, 1951, has served as pastor of 20 churches and planted three churches. He has served as a police chaplain for the Bessemer and Birmingham police departments and is the director of evangelism for North Jefferson Association. He is married to Elizabeth.

“At the present, I don’t feel the desire of retirement,” Perkins said. “When God calls a person to preach, He doesn’t take the call away.”
