FROM THE BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY OF PRIMITIVE OR OLD SCHOOL BAPTIST MINISTERS BY DAVID MONTGOMERY AND MARK GREEN: 

ELDER BUDDY ABERNATHY, JR.

 

I was born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on June 9, 1963. My mother faithfully carried me and my sister to Five Mile Church where she is a member. I joined Five Mile Church in November 1978 and was baptized the following month by the pastor of the church, Elder Elmer Kitchens from Jasper, Alabama.

 

In 1981, I entered the University of Alabama in pursuit of a degree in Engineering. It was also during this period of time that I began to feel impressions to speak but did not realize that the impressions were an indication that I was called to preach.

 

In June of 1985, I was liberated to preach and the following August I met Miss Tina Lynne Wingard of McCalla, Alabama. She was not a member but had attended a singing at the home of one of the preachers in our community. We then began attending church together regularly. In June of 1986, Tina joined Five Mile Church and was baptized by Elder Glenn Payne.

 

Elder Payne was my "father in the ministry" and always encouraged me regarding my efforts to preach. In July of 1986, I was ordained to the full work of the gospel ministry. Tina and I were married on January 3, 1987 and began living in a rental house in Akron.

 

In June of 1989, I accepted the care of Mars Hill Church in Edison, Georgia. Thechurch owned a house in which we were allowed to live and they were financially generous to us. Therefore, I was able to devote all of my time to the work of the ministry, for which I am grateful. In August of 1994, I accepted the care of El Bethel Church in Tampa, Florida.

 

By the end of 1998, I felt that I had completed the work, which the Lord had sent me there to do. For approximately six months I traveled by airplane to Birmingham, Alabama and filled appointments at Grants Mill Church. Initially, I had accepted a call to pastor Grants Mill Church. However, I could not feel at peace with my decision and declined the call. As of this writing (Feb. 2000), I am traveling to preach at other churches almost every weekend as I prayerfully wait upon the Lord to open a door in accordance with His providential will.

 

My wife and I have been blessed with five children Sara (11), Rachel (9), Hannah (6), Lydia (3& l/2), and Chloe (1 month).
