August 21, 2008
Ricky White has retired after more than 40 years in the ministry. Most recently, White was pastor of Hamilton Baptist Church, Robertsdale, in Baldwin Baptist Association, serving there for seven years. “I will miss the people the most.
They are out-of-this-world members,” he said of his Hamilton Baptist family.
During a reception July 27, the church presented him with a retirement gift — money to go to the Holy Land.
White plans to spend his retirement traveling and spending time with wife Carol, their three adult children and their eight grandchildren.
In addition to Hamilton Baptist, he served eight churches in Mississippi and four in Florida. White received a master’s degree in pastoral ministry from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and a bachelor of arts from William Carey College (now William Carey University) in Hattiesburg, Miss.
He is available for pulpit supply and revivals. To contact him, call 251-946-2371 or write to 19565 Oak Circle, Seminole, AL 36574.
