Founder/Pastor Emeritus

Our History

The spiritual journey of the Fellowship Baptist church, led by Reverend Dr. Carlton W. Veazey, Pastor-Founder, began August 19, 1994. The church was organized under the gracious patronage of the Dr. Walter E. Fauntroy, Pastor, New Bethel Baptist Church. Dr. Fauntroy and his parishioners opened their doors and helped the struggling church.

The late Dr. Joseph A. Gilmore, Sr., Pastor of MT. Ephraim Baptist Church, gently encouraged and guided a small prayer band in their search for a spiritual leader and church home. Dr. Gilmore gave assurance that God needs only a few to do His work. The worshippers continued their quest, all on one accord and committed to the same purpose; to encourage Rev. Veazey to become pastor of the new church.
