As we celebrate Black History Month, we celebrate our own Black History maker, the late Pastor Sherman A. Douglas, the third pastor of Holman Street Baptist Church. Pastor Douglas join the church as a young man in 1948.
He served as a deacon and church clerk before being called to preach in 1952. Pastor Douglas was a young associate preacher when he was installed in August 1955.
Holman Street Baptist Church began a steady path of growth under Pastor Douglas’ inspiring and anointed leadership. He believed with the church’s support that a full-time pastor would be best for the church and its future.
Pastor Douglas was dedicated to the local and national communities and worked to lift the burdens of his people and to open doors of opportunity. He was a personal friend to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and joined other young pastors who brought the civil rights leader to Houston to meet the community and raise money for the Civil Rights Movement.
On July 7, 1974 Pastor Douglas and church musician Sister Zelda Miller produced a memorial album in tribute to Sister Barbara Rose Franklin, the Minister of Music. The album titled “Contrary Winds,” a noted sermon preached by Pastor Douglas. During his time as pastor, he licensed 8 sons into the ministry.
Pastor Douglas has two living siblings, Dorothy Gilbert and Matthew Douglas. Holman Street history is Black History. On this day, Pastor Murray G. Martin and the entire Holman Street Baptist Church family honor a Black History maker, Pastor Sherman A. Douglas.
Church family, have you prayed today? Pastor Martin started a new Bible Study series titled Holy Habits. Last night, we dealt with the power and importance of having a strong prayer life. If you have not prayed today, take about 12 minutes to pray and talk to God. Much Prayer = Much Power! Little Prayer = Little Power! We want you to have much power and it comes through prayer. It’s not too late to pray TODAY.
