Men’s Day event coming Sunday to Coley Springs

May. 31, 2013 @ 08:23 PM


This Sunday, the men’s ministry of Coley Springs Missionary Baptist Church will conduct a pair of services for its annual Men’s Day of Celebration.

Minister Adrian Davis of Spring Street Missionary Baptist Church in Henderson will speak during the morning worship, starting at 10:45 a.m. The Coley Springs Male Chorus will provide music at this time. The celebration will continue with the 100 Men in Black Celebration at 4 p.m. Accompanied by his church’s male chorus, ushers and congregation, the Rev. Anthony Vickers, pastor of Spring Street, will speak.

A Vance County native, he became a born-again in March of 2004 and announced his calling three years later. In August of 2011, he was licensed to preach. He currently serves as an associate minister at Spring Street under Vicker’s tutelage. In addition, he serves as Sunday School teacher, Bible study teacher and New Disciple instructor, while providing for the spiritual needs of nursing homes residents every week.

Davis has taken biblical studies and church administration at both Shaw University and Franklin Bible Institute. He is currently enrolled in Liberty Bible College.

Vickers achieved clinical certification and theological training from Chicago Baptist Institute, as well as a bachelor’s degree in business from Trinity Christian College. He has since accumulated more than 25 years worth of both ministerial and accounting experience. Now, he advises other ministers on how they may achieve similar success.

In addition to his role as a minister, he has held numerous positions with religious organizations, such as financial secretary and appropriations committee member (Salem Baptist District Association); and director of finance (Baptist Ministers’ Conference of Chicago and Vicinity).
