Former ETBU VP & Longtime Central Baptist Pastor Retires

MARSHALL NEWS MESSENGER (1/24/15) -  Almost 38 years after he joined Central Baptist Church as pastor, Wallace Watkins bid adieu to his flock to warm wishes and fond memories.

"There's a friend of mine who said, Wallace Watkins is not a famous pastor but probably should be," said Patrick Adair, Central's new pastor. "From my perspective it was a tremendous honor and blessing to be able to follow in Wallace's footsteps."

Watkins retired from his pastorship on Jan. 1 but the church held a service on Jan. 11 to say farewell.
