Leon Wiggins, Sr.

From the Biographical History of Primitive or Old School Baptist Ministers, 2001.

Elder Leon Wiggins, Sr. was born in Sumter County, Georgia, on December 19, 1911. (In 2001) He and his twin brother, Leo, were the only surviving children of eleven that were born to John T. and Elizabeth S. Wiggins. He attended Liberty Primitive Baptist Church during his boyhood and joined the church and was baptized on February 20, 1931, by his brother, Elder O.E. Wiggins. He was ordained as a minister of God in May 1955 at Liberty Church.

He was a faithful pastor of the following churches in Georgia: Liberty Church, Sumter Co., 16 years; Harmony Church, Barwick, 18 years; and Bethel Church, Pavo, 12 years.

In 1979, he moved to Brunswick, Georgia, to hold regular services with a small group of believers in their homes. From this labor of love and service, Zion Church was constituted in September 1979. He was called as their first pastor and served Zion Church for 16 years.

Due to failing health, Elder Wiggins and his wife moved back home, giving up the pastoral care of Zion Church in September 1996.

Elder Wiggins married Rosa Lee Bently from Roberta, Georgia, in December 1938. After she died in 1941, he married Helen Davis of Terrell County, Georgia, on April 2, 1943.

The Lord blessed Elder Wiggin and his companion of fifty-six years with three daughters and two sons.
