Bishop Simeon Hall to preach at Baltimore Baptist Convention
Bishop Simeon Hall will be the singular non-American among seven speakers and preachers when the National Baptist Convention U.S.A. Inc. meets in its 114th Annual Congress of Christian Education.
Hall will be amongst a field that will include reverends Theron Jackson, Kenneth Johnson, Allen B. Green, Lester Taylor, Tellis Chapman, Willard Ashley and Frank Ray, for the four-day Congress.
“It is a long way from humble Choke Neck Alley to a distinguished pulpit before tens of thousands in Baltimore, but with the help and blessings of the Almighty, I shall do my best to represent The Bahamas and the kingdom of God,” said Hall of his upcoming opportunity to preach before the convention.
The Congress will be held in Baltimore, Maryland, June 18-21.
The National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. is the largest of all three Baptist Conventions in the United States and the world at large, boasting a membership of seven-and-a-half million people, spanning 31,000 Baptist congregations.
Dr. Jerry Young is president of the National Baptist Convention, USA, inc.; Dr. James Cokley is president of the National Baptist Congress of Christian Education; Chapman is director of the Pastors and Ministers Division.
Hall, 72, has been preaching for more than 53 years and has already preached in 45 of the 50 states in America.
Hall, once a fifth-grade drop-out, later became a 1973 graduate of American Baptist Theological Seminary in Nashville, Tennessee. His thirst for knowledge and education as well as his passion for Christian teachings and ecumenism in general pushed him to immerse himself in this area of kingdom-building and to hone his oratory skills.
He is known for sermons that are hermeneutically sound and homiletically well-structured.
