HISTORIC ZION BAPTIST CHURCH HONORS PASTOR’S 25TH ANNIVERSARY
July 22, 2018
Re: Zion Baptist Church Honors its 24th Pastor For Serving 25 Years!!!
From: Clementine W. Pigford, Historian
Twenty-five years of Faithful Service
On Sunday July 22, 2018, Denver, Colorado’s oldest African American Baptist Church celebrated the 25th anniversary of Senior Pastor Dr. Frank Marvin Davis. Pastor Davis is Zion’s 24th “elected “pastor. He became Zion’s Interim Pastor in 1991 after the death of Zion’s longest serving Pastor Dr. Wendell Theodore Liggins.
The anniversary celebrations included a “First Lady Kathleen Gow Davis” luncheon Friday July 20, 2018 at Denver’s Park Hill Golf Club, an Anniversary Banquet that featured Pastor Cleveland Thompson from the Emmanuel Baptist Church, Colorado Springs, Colorado, and the Sunday morning service where Pastor Wade C. Davis brought the morning sermon.
During Pastor Frank Marvin Davis’ tenure, a large number of established ministries were sustained, and an impressive number of ministries were created. Most notably the African Connection that enriched churches, environmental projects, and spiritual uplifting. With Pastor Davis’ leadership, The Zion Learning Center, Zion Resource Center, the Forest Street Compassionate Care Center, and the Zion Senior Center became debt-free properties of the church.
Frank Marvin Davis was born and raised in the Brazos “bottom” city of Bryan, Texas. He is the fifth of twelve children born to Brother Golden and Sister Emma Davis.
Reverend Davis is a devoted husband and father. He is happily married to his lovely wife, Kathy, and they have five children; Letitia, Jevon, Sheriee, Francine, and Frank, Jr.
Zion Baptist church continues to serve the community by offering a number of no-cost services to its near and far away neighbors. The church persists through today’s societal impacts.
Pastor Davis promotes Zion as a light, a lift, and a safe harbor!
