Mack Sporman, pastor of Bethel Baptist Church, Glenwood, died Jan. 31. He was 80.
Sporman attended Troy University, Auburn University and the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Before he became a pastor, Sporman was a lay speaker for churches and filled in for various pastors.
After serving as pastor of Bethel Baptist for eight years, he served other churches in Alabama, including Dozier Baptist Church; Joquin Baptist Church, Goshen; and Rutledge Baptist Church. Sporman returned to Bethel two years ago.
“Brother Mack was one of those pillars at our church,” Bethel deacon Ricky Grant said. “[He] was a mentor to younger pastors coming into the ministry.”
Sporman is survived by his wife of 61 years, Jean; two sons; and three grandchildren.
