Greetings About Ministerial Staff (coming soon)

Welcome to the "Star"

"But eagerly desire the greater gifts. And now I will show you the most excellent way."
- 1 Corinthians 12:31

The above passage is the final verse of chapter twelve, and serves as an introduction to the thirteenth chapter, which is all about genuine Christian love. Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church is a church that seeks to do ministry in "a more excellent way". We are a worshiping, working, and serving community of faith; seeking to spread the gospel message of Jesus Christ throughout our community, and the world. Our church has a rich history of community service:

  • Spiritual in-reach, ministry in, and to the body of Christ
  • Spiritual outreach, mission emphasis beyond our doors local, and national
  • And spiritual ministry diversity; which seeks to empower people in their walk of faith; and in fulfilling their God given purpose.

I believe that ministry is best accomplished through an empowered pulpit and pew, laity and clergy, working together in authentic Christian love. We extend a welcoming hand, and an open heart to those who are a part of our community; as well as to those who may be temporarily in our community. We have a rich history of African American worship and service, and invite you to visit, and if you are led, to become a part of our church family.

Welcome to the "Star"!

Serving by God's grace,
Reverend Dennis Leach Sr., PhD in Ministry, BS. M. Div.

"Greetings, in the Name of our Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ."

I truly consider it an honor and a joy to join the Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church family. I look forward to working and serving with my husband, Rev. Dennis Leach.

We never know exactly what God has planned, but we do know that His desire is for us to minister and to serve one another and the community, looking to His Son as our example, as we offer His awesome gift of salvation.

The warm and gracious welcome that we have received has been wonderful and I look forward to the glorious fellowship that we will have in the days, months, and years to come. I give all glory, honor, and praise to our magnificent God for the great things that He has done!!

Serving by God's grace,
Reverend Charolette Leach
First Lady
