King retires from TBFA after 21 years of service

After 21 years of service George King retired June 30 from his position as vice president of client services for The Baptist Foundation of Alabama (TBFA).

King earned a bachelor’s degree from Samford University in Birmingham and a master of divinity and doctor of ministry from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

He previously served as pastor of Moon Lake Baptist Church, Mentone; Berry Baptist Church; and Valley Creek Baptist Church, Hueytown. He also served as pastor of churches in Birmingham Baptist Association and Mud Creek Baptist Association as well as a church in Mississippi. He currently serves as bivocational pastor of Mountain Hill Baptist Church, LaPine, a position he’s held for nearly 19 years.

In his role at TBFA, King administered the scholarship program, something he said he was thankful to have been a part of as he saw more than $500,000 given in scholarships each year to Alabama Baptists seeking seminary degrees. 

He also noted how TBFA is a unique Alabama Baptist ministry in that it deals with estate planning and “leaving a legacy.”

“Too many times ministers get a bad rap about preaching on money but ... if we don’t have funds, ministries don’t get started,” King said.

“If you plan your estate then you can plan to leave funds for the Lord’s work. ... I feel (TBFA) is truly a ministry from the Lord, and I thank Alabama Baptists who had the forethought (in 1940) to say we need some way to have Alabama Baptists give through their wills and leave a legacy.” 

King and his wife, Sandra, have two children and four grandchildren.
