Ernestine Adkins Stevens in Hardy, Kentucky, and entered the presence of the Lord on October
20, 2020, from his home, at the age of 76.

Union, where he pastored for nearly 26 years. Prior to this, he pastored Shawnee Community
Church, Hamilton Church, Faith Tabernacle, Satterfield Chapel Christian Union, and Beasley’s

which states, “What shall I render unto the LORD for all His benefits toward me?”

historical cars, etc. He especially loved music and played a variety of instruments, but of greatest
significance were the many lives who were touched by his ministry.
