Roger Willmore, former president of the Alabama Baptist State Convention, resigned as pastor of Deerfoot Church, Trussville, effective June 30. He served as senior pastor for nine and a half years. Willmore served in pastoral ministry for more than 40 years. He was active in denominational life having served the Alabama Baptist Convention. He also served as a LifeWay trustee for nine years. For 15 years he taught in the annual Beeson (Samford) Pastors School. Willmore’s ministry has included active involvement in foreign missions.
