Prince of Peace Church History

On December 5, 1982, Prince of Peace Missionary Baptist Church Inc. was formed. This church body is strictly of God and most miraculous. Prince of Peace M.B.C. was founded under the pastorship and leadership of Reverend Stanford Hervey with twelve (12) chartered members. After three years of pastorship, On June 28, 1985, Pastor Hervey was called home to glory.

On December 7, 1985, Reverend Clifton Dollison accepted the responsibility of pastor and was installed on August 17, 1986 by Reverend Cleytus D. Malone and the membership of Second Missionary Baptist Church. After leading the Prince of Peace flock for six years, Reverend Dollison relocated to Florida, where he accepted another pastorship.

On August 30, 1992, the Lord sent us a shepherd, Reverend Robert Lee Seaward. Reverend Seaward pastored Prince of Peace M.B.C. for twenty six years; prominently known for his servant leadership. In March, 2008, Reverend Seaward officially offered his resignation as pastor due to health complications. Even in ill health, Pastor Seaward's attitude was:

“Come what may, God knows and is the Way;

and I will stay on the battle field until my dying day.

Pastor Dennis Manuel graciously served as Interim Pastor from March through November 2008.

On March 8, 2009, Reverend Warren Bryant was ordained and installed March 8, 2009. Pastor Bryant, a man with a vision and a man with a heart for God’s people served faithfully as our leader until August 15, 2010.

On March 4, 2012, with excitement, we welcomed Pastor Mark A. Evans. Pastor Evans was installed on March 25, 2012. Pastor Evans came by way of Puritan Missionary Baptist Church in Indianapolis, IN, which is under the leadership of Bishop Larry D. Grinstead.

Pastor Evans' preaching and teaching, and his love for God and God’s people are remarkable. We look forward to the bright future of Prince of Peace. The best is yet to come!
