I wa saved in 1974 in Junior Church at Temple Baptist Church in Redford while riding the Buses from my house in Detroit 6 years later, I had the chance to become a bus captain along with a few friends some people thought we were too young (just 16)but we had a friend that stood behind us his name was Al Moore and he taught us everything that we know.

Sadly, in 1988, Temple shut all their buses down after the pastor resigned my bus at the time had 75-100 kids every Sunday as I listen to the song that is on this website, it reminds me of what it was, what it is, and if we dont make it change, what it will be. When we lost the routes all my friends also left and went their seperate ways.

I was told that I was bringing too many black kids and they had to stop them or the church would be wrecked. Well, it did fall anyway. I found a small Church in my bus area and continued to run it but they didnt have the people or the money to keep it going so I had to stop it in 1992. '

I found another Church (a non-denominational Church) and got it started again and between the two Churches we saw a lot of good things happen but the same thing happened there. This was a mostly black church and they just told me, "if they cant behave, they have to stay home" so in March 2003 I left for good.

I currently have a bus route at Charity Baptist Church in Brownstown, Mi (Pastor Wayne Halleck) just over a year old and we bring about 30 a week. Not too many Churches doing the Bus Ministry anymore that are close by. If there are any old Temple Members out there or if there are any similiar stories, I'd love to hear from you.

Web-Ministry is intended for the Glory of God.

Please try to be respectful of God and to be reverent toward His Word, which is the Holy Bible.

People from all walks of life and backgrounds of faith are welcome here,
including the backslidden and nonbelievers, as well.

We may not all agree... but we can agree to disagree, at least.

However, any potential disagreements still need to remain civil in nature, and should stay as such.

Please, just debate the points of your position, if necessary, and refrain from ad hominem attacks.
Slandering and name calling serve no productive purpose.

Posting rules are based upon decent conduct and generally acceptable chat behavior and,
