primitive baptist sermons  
Ricky Harcrow

I was born on Jan.28, 1951 in Gadsden Alabama, Etowah County to Mr. and Mrs. Jack Harcrow. I have lived in the general area where I now live most all of my life. I have been acquainted with the Primitive Baptists all of my life and reared in the church.
I began preaching in 1970 and was ordained that same year by the order of Pilgrims Rest Primitive Baptist Church at Rainsville Alabama, my home church at the time. I was 19 years old. From that time until now I have served churches in a four county region of North Eastern Alabama the Sand Mountain area of the state.
On August 9, 1974 I was married to Miss Susan E. Rosser at the Zion Hill Primitive Baptist Church near Boaz Alabama where I was pastor at the time and am still the pastor at present. My wife was a member of the church there then together with many past generations of her family. Our family has been blessed with two children, Sarah and Jackson. I have baptized them both and we are all members at Zion Hill in Marshall County Alabama. I also serve New Clear Creek Primitive Baptist Church in the same community. I attended High School at Plainview High School near Fort Payne Alabama in Dekalb County, Northeast State Jr. College and Jacksonville State University at Jacksonville Alabama. I have been employed by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) for 22 years the power distributor for a five state region. I have been elected to the City council of my hometown, elected Mayor and presently serve on the Dekalb County Board of Commissioners being elected from district one of Dekalb County Alabama. May I say that the Lord has richly blessed me in so many ways. I have been blessed with a wonderful family, in-laws who are wonderful people, and church members and people whom I serve who have been so gracious to me. I have been blessed to travel and preach extensively and Gods people have been so wonderful to invite and receive me. My friends in the community are dear and I covet their prayers and affections.

I love the church today more than I ever have. It is more precious today than it ever has been to me and mine. We want to be nothing more than plain and simple Old Line Primitive Baptists. We are satisfied with the order of the House of God and want nothing added to it from the religions of this day. I love the people I serve, as poor a servant as I am, and want to continue in the best way that I can.
