Willowbrook Baptist Church Welcomes Retired Major General Douglas Carver
June 30, 2015 – – Huntsville, Alabama’s own Willowbrook Baptist Church is proud to announce that retired Major General Douglas Carver will be joining them on Sunday, June 28 for all services. The congregation can expect to see him at the 8am, 9am, 10:30am and 5pm services, and the church has made it very clear that they are very excited about having Major General Carver as a guest speaker. The news has been shared through the Willowbrook Baptist Church’s official Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/WillowbrookBaptistChurch They express: “At Willowbrook, we are committed to the adventure of following Christ and watching Him radically and wonderfully transform lives.”
Major General Carver is recognized for his contribution to the church through his role as executive director of chaplain services for the North American Mission Board (NAMB) of the Southern Baptist Convention. He reportedly graduated with degrees in theology from both the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and the University of Tennessee. He is known not only for his worth within the Baptist Church, but also for his time in the United States Military through which he earned a number of distinguished medals such as a Bronze Star, Global War On Terrorism Service Medal, Legion of Merit, and many more.
Willowbrook Baptist Church Huntsville AL is reportedly known within the community as being a Bible based, Christ-centered church with a unique take on worship. They open their doors to all those seeking to reconnect or connect more deeply with the Lord, and have suggested that they hope their high-energy services will help bring in new faces each week. Having Major General Carver join them is one way which they seem to be working toward this goal. They are described in the following way on the official Willowbrook website: “It is a place for believers to grow deep in their relationship with Christ. It is also a safe place for those who have been bored, burned, or bypassed by church to reconnect with God.”
While Willowbrook is looking to connect Christians to a more modern approach to worship, Carver is also said to be working toward making new connections. Recently Baptist Press News reported that Major General Carver said he hoped to help form a closer knit bond between local churches and chaplaincy. Chaplains have always been a part of the outer circle of church ministry, but he is hoping to show just how integral they can be in the military as well as other areas where they serve.
