After decades as leader, Raford Herrin preached his last sermon as a pastor Sunday, but he’s not walking away from the pulpit.
Herrin, the 86-year-old pastor of Brooks Baptist Church in Elizabethtown, has been preaching 62 years.
During his career, he’s started four churches. One in Cynthiana, one in Falmouth, one in Mount Vernon and, the last, now known as Brooks Baptist Church.
The Elizabethtown church held its first service in June 1982. Herrin and his wife, Vonda Delphine, remember it well.
