Jay Harris

FROM THE BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY OF PRIMITIVE OR OLD SCHOOL BAPTIST MINISTERS BY DAVID MONTGOMERY AND MARK GREEN: 
-
Elder Harris was born in Floyd County, Virginia on April 27, 1938. He was the son of Marvin and Blanche Harris. He was married to Reba Hatfield from Dunlap, Tennessee on February 10, 1957. They have one son, Craig S. Harris.

 

Elder Harris joined Indian Creek Church, Indian Valley, VA and was baptized ByElder Jethro Harris on April 17, 1955. He was ordained as a Deacon at Indian Creek Church on October 2, 1960  Jay and Reba became charter members of the Pulaski Church that was constituted on November 28, 1964.
On March 16, 1975, he was given liberty to  preach. On May 29, 1976, he was ordained a Primitive Baptist Elder and was called to serve Pulaski Primitive Baptist Church, Pulaski, Virginia on the same date. Elder Harris is still the pastor (January 2000). Most of his labors have been at Pulaski Church with occasional trips to other churches. Pulaski Church, even though small has been blessed to be almost a mother of preachers. Five ministers have been ordained from our church, the last two in 1999.

 

Jay worked a sales territory for a tire manufacture until 1995, when he took an early retirement to spend all his time to being a pastor.
 
 
 Elder Jay Harris went home to be with the Lord Tuesday morning around 2:00am, May 15, 2012. He was a faithful servant and dedicated to the cause of Christ and the furtherance of the Gospel; he will be missed by his family and Pulaski Primitive Baptist Church.
