Weldon Baptist

WELDON — Malcolm Ray Renn Jr., pastor of Vaughan Baptist Church, will be the guest speaker at noon Wednesday at the bi-weekly complimentary lunch and prayer meeting of Weldon Baptist Church, 609 Washington Ave.

During lunch and before the prayer time, attendees will hear Renn share the inspiring success story of church revitalization since his pastoral ministry began at Vaughan Baptist in 2012. Upon his arrival at what is his first solo pastorate, the once thriving rural church had dwindled to less than a dozen members. The congregation has since stabilized and grown under his and the deacons’ leadership.

Besides pastoring and community volunteerism while fathering three children with his wife, Jessica, he is also the full-time automotive instructor at Halifax Community College in Weldon.

“With so many historic churches — rural, suburban and city — experiencing numerically declining members throughout North Carolina, the U.S. and Canada, we look forward to hearing and learning from Pastor Ray about how the Lord spiritually revitalized, revived and stabilized 123-year-old Vaughan Baptist,” said Weldon Baptist’s new pastor and scholar-in-residence Francis Kyle.
