Dr. Lavelle Hendricks has pastored East Caney Missionary Baptist Church for 30 years. In addition to that milestone, it was 30 years ago that he also founded a celebration of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Hopkins County. It is for his love, courage, servanthood and commitment that he was honored in a special service on Sunday February 2, 2020.

Pastor Hendricks was ushered into the sanctuary to the applause of 100 friends and parishioners.

A number of pastors attended to speak about their regard for Pastor Hendricks as a friend, leader and servant. Women of the congregation sang “Give and It Will Come Back To You” as the crowd filed past the offering basket and back to their seats. The music was joyful and inspiring, performed by the visiting Pleasant Hill Baptist Church Choir and the East Caney Choir.Pastor Willis Taylor delivered a strong sermon about obedience and faith based on 1 Kings 7:8-13.
