Barnabas Brammer



I was born in Campbell County, Virginia on November 11, 1942. For most of my early years, I lived in Henry County, at which time I resided in the Bassett area and later the Collinsville area. It was early in my life that I was exposed to the Old Baptist teachings, primarily because my father, Elder Thomas Brammer and my uncle, Elder Leonard Brammer, were both Primitive Baptist ministers. I had spent many hours at home listening to Dad and many others sharing their beliefs,experiences, and callings. We children were taken to "meeting" every week and very often we had also attended the associations that would last for three days. I can still remember sitting outside on those hard benches, the ones without the back to lean up against, from around 9:30 in the morning until two or three in the afternoon. At some point in time I decided that when I was old enough to be in control of my own life, that I would never attend another Primitive Baptist meeting. It was many years after I had moved from my home state to Baltimore, Maryland that the Lord worked a work in me that caused me to be convicted of my sins. After a long period of living in this condition of emptiness, unable to pray, the time had finally come upon me when I found myself able and blessed to pray as it were "God be merciful to me a sinner" as I was retiring for the night. As I awoke the next morning all was peace and joy, the sun had shone brighter than ever before, the birds sang sweeter, and even as Pilgrim in the "Pilgrim's Progress" the burden wass removed. I then found myself gladly driving 650 miles round trip to attend those meetings I spoke of earlier. I now am a member of Rock Springs Church in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania where I joined on October 4, 1981 as they were singing the words "Thy Blood can cleanse the foulest stain and can avail for me." I served as deacon from July 5, 1987 until May 30, 1993 at which time I was ordained to the full work of the ministry. I serve as pastor of Newport News Primitive Baptist Church in Virginia and as co-pastor of Black Rock Particular Primitive Baptist Church in Butler, Maryland.

Current Update: Brother Brammer now serves as Pastor for both Newport News and Black Rock churches.
