Minister Marcus E. Harris Installed as the New Pastor Of Samuel Baptist Church
By: Linda Moore-Evans
On Sunday, January 27, 2013 at four-thirty in the afternoon, Dr. E.E. Furtch of the Anointed Church, International installed Minister Marcus E. Harris as the new Pastor of Samuel Baptist Church at 1508 Talton Avenue in Fort Worth, Texas. The service had standing-room only and was filled with well-wishers and was one to be remembered for years to come.
The Samuel Baptist Church Family anticipated the Installation of Pastor Harris, because they had been in a spiritual drought for ten years; while being led by other Pastors who weren't compassionate enough to see that the flock was still grieving the loss of Dr. Joe L. Talton Sr., who was Pastor for over thirty-three years before transitioning to the other side in 2002; just six months after the demise of his wife, Mrs. Roberta Talton.
After much prayer and supplication, in October 2012, the Lord led them to call, Minister Harris to be considered as their Pastor. When he received the call, he was not looking to Pastor a Church; because he was happy in his fellowship of ten years, with the Anointed Church International; but after praying with his Pastor, Dr. E.E. Furtch, God touched his heart and lead him to answer the call. After the results of a unanimous vote were revealed, God ordained the union of this great preacher and the Samuel Baptist Church was once again strengthened.
Pastor Harris is truly an anointed man of God and is filled with the Holy Spirit. He leads with humbleness and truth and is determined to take the church in the direction it should go. Many bear witness of being spiritually healed from sickness and disease, delivered from depression, blessed with unforeseen job opportunities and finances and being filled with the Holy Spirit. Each service is blessed with the sound of praise and worship unto God, echoing through the corridors, for covering the church as only He can. The revelation of His promise is revealed and is felt in the hearts of all who attend. The church continues to grow with members who return and rededicate their lives back to the Church; as well as visitors who have heard of Pastor Harris’s belief in prayer and laying of hands in the name of Jesus.
Pastor Harris is the son of Mrs. Alberta Talton Harris and the late Pastor Cecil Harris and respectfully the nephew of Dr. Talton, whose shoes he has so graciously filled. He has been preaching the Gospel for twenty-two years and is known throughout the Metroplex for praising God in song. He is blessed with his lovely wife of twenty years, Lady Melina Harris, an anointed woman of God, who is certainly the epitome of what a Pastor’s wife should be. They are blessed with two great examples for our youth to follow, a son, Markalin, a senior in high school and drummer and a daughter, Makalia, who is an up and coming pianist.
If you need to hear a powerful word from God; if your soul need stirring through the ministry of song; if your heart needs mending; if your body needs healing; if your children need further direction; if your marriage needs strengthening or you need a real relationship with God; then you owe it to yourself to come hear this blessed man of God.
