Fred Lowery is an ArkLaTex Best

Posted: Updated:
BOSSIER CITY, La. (KTBS) -

Where do you begin telling the story of a man who has changed so many lives? You could see them Sunday morning all over the packed sanctuary at First Baptist Church Bossier.

Hands raised and hearts full in the presence of their Lord, the one he introduced them to. For instance, there was Mark Rode who 5 years ago, was virtually homeless when...

"the church brought us food when we were hungry."

A few years later, "Dr. Fred baptized me" recalls Mark.

There have been 1000's of those since that dark haired preacher arrived from South Carolina back in 1983 and from the beginning, there was a consistent message.

"What the most important thing we do, church and prayer connects you with heaven."

There was just something about him. When Fred Lowery spoke, people listened and 100's answered the call to ministry.

"Under your ministry, I trusted Christ and my life has never been the same."

We will never know how many times that happened but we do know that the church grew and prospered under his leadership and people were never the same. That little homeless boy is now on staff at the church that fed him in more ways than one.

There were plenty of tears Sunday morning, even the ever stoic Dr. Fred got red eyed.

"We are really happy today and we are really sad today.

It is and the human side was all around him that morning. Holding him close...the lives changed, the marriages healed and the pastors born. 30 years of one faithful man who shared the good news. He plowed the hard ground and on that Sunday morning, he beared witness to the harvest.
