On October 8, 2017, we extended Gospel Light Baptist Church to the city of Meridian. We temporarily met in Webb Hall, DuLaney Room at Meridian Community College. Our burden grows for Meridian, and now we are spending every first and third Friday night of the month in the homes of our congregation, specifically praying for this community, its leaders, and the church we are trying to build for the honor and glory of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Caleb Weems, son of Pastor Tim and Mrs. Deana Weems, was ordained by Gospel Light in February, 2018. Over the last year and half, Bro. Caleb has been working on a MA in Pastoral Theology at Commonwealth Baptist College in Lexington, KY. He was the lead of a church planting team for CBC and was dedicated serving the Lord in soul-winning and working the bus route. Having earned his degree in May of 2018, Bro. Caleb intends on using the knowledge he has gained at CBC and officially planting Gospel Light Baptist Church in Meridian in the upcoming months.
Bro. Caleb also knows the city of Meridian well, for he is a graduate of Mississippi State University-Meridian with a BA in Business Administration. Bro. Caleb is prepared, eager, and ready to begin this new church in Meridian.
We are overjoyed with the many doors God is opening for Gospel Light in Meridian, and we hope you will join us in prayer as this new ministry begins.
