In Memoriam - Beloved Associate Minister

Vincent Turner

 

Reverend Vincent Turner, formerly of LaGrange, Georgia, attended Ward Chapel Church.  He graduated in 1976 from Buchtel High School.  He accepted Christ at the age of fourteen.

In 1976, Reverend Turner enlisted in the U.S. Army and earned an Associate Degree from Vincent College.  Reverend Turner retired from the U.S. Army in 1997.

Reverend Turner married Sis. Sandra Turner (whom he referred to as his "Queen") and proudly bragged on their three adult children:  Sierra, Vincent Jr. and Michael.

Reverend Turner was ordained in 1988 as a deacon of Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church.  Upon moving to Alabama, he began serving under Pastor Charles Dent as an Associate Minister at New Generation Baptist Church in Mobile.  He was ordained in 2005.  Reverend Turner served as an Associate Minister of Pastoral Care under Pastor Mark Spencer at New Beginning Baptist Church.

In June 2011, he was elected to two key state positions for the State of Alabama: Chaplain, American Legion and Chaplain, Disabled American Veterans.  In July 2011, Rev. Turner was voted 2011 Chaplain of the Year by the United States Corps of Chaplains for his committed service and dedication to the veterans community, both locally and nationally.

As Associate Minister at Mt. Pleasant, Rev. Turner often served as a Bible Study Leader, Prayer Leader and  as the Veterans' Program leader.  He supported the Youth Ministry and spearheaded the building and addition of a custom-made large wooden prayer box, found in the sancturary that allows members to submit private prayer requests. His often quoted motto that members remain mindful of today lives on: "Keep Prayer Alive" !!
