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

 

 

 

ELDER LARRY (CARL) STATEN

 

 

I was born on August 19, 1957 to Raymond Jackson and Arietta Elaine (Brooks) Staten in the city of West Point, Ms. We lived in a small rural area which is known as Una Community. I joined the church and was baptized on the 1st Sunday of February of 1971 at the age of 13. I was baptized as the custom was at that time in a pond in the middle of a pasture. I remember it was a cold day, but don't remember the water being cold.

I was married to Sheila Ann Armstreet on January 17, 1976. To this union there have been 4 children born, 3 sons, and one daughter: James Adam, John Gregory, Kenneth Jackson, and Christina Hope Staten. I felt the moving of the Spirit to speak for several years, I really don't remember how long. I do remember trying to avoid it. I was and have been a diesel mechanic by profession and a mechanic by trade since I was 15, when I took my first public job. It was on the job in 1982 that I finally came to grips of the nature of the call to preach. I made the thoughts known to my wife and then to the church. I started speaking under the guide of Elder Cleveland Smith and Elder J. T. Shields, who were the co-pastors of our church at that time. I was ordained to the ministry on the 3rdSaturday afternoon of June 1985. I thought I knew what the weight of thecall was until I felt the hands of the presbytery that day. I was called topastor my home church that November, as well as travel around the state for quite awhile.

 

My family and I moved to Arkansas in January of 1993 to Russellville. We moved our letters there to Point Remove Church where Elder Harold Stumbaugh is pastor. I traveled around the state of Arkansas for 6 years and held appointments at churches regularly during that time. I attribute a lot of my growth as a minister to that time to the teaching of Elder Stumbaugh. Elder Don Farris has had a great influence in my life as well. I was called to pastor Little Flock Church at Rogers, Ark in July of 1999.
