Rev. Willie C. Alford

You often hear him say that during daily devotion he always ask God to show him someone that he can help.  He has a love, compassion and a giving heart for the senior citizens. With that passion he makes weekly calls to senior citizens, and engages on a regular basis with taking people shopping and to doctor’s appointment who are not members of his

congregation without compensation and sits with the elderly often. As a testament to his caring spirit, he sponsored 50 Senior Citizens with a $50.00 gift. He opened his home to several people who had no place to stay. He goes to surgery with anyone who asks and supports the families, makes hospital visits to as many, if not more, non-members as his own members.

As Community Eulogist he accompanies families outside his church during

bereavement by assisting with plans for service arrangements and advocates so that no one can take advantage of them. He sends sympathy card/condolences to families around the area who have lost loved ones. He continues to call deceased nonmember spouses.  People from other churches call him for advice, prayer and he makes himself available for those who need a listening ear day or night. For his classmates he sends birthday cards, plans dinners, fellowships, holiday gatherings and cruises. He makes phone calls and text messages regularly to encourage young men to be positive role models in the community and tutors students if needed. He is a preacher pastor’s friend, a confidant to those of the cloth. A family man, a

husband, awesome dad, grandfather, brother, uncle, friend, an anointed man of God and a great spiritual leader who has committed his life to service to God and others.
