|Apostle Walter Smith, Tylertown, MS
The Call of An Apostle
For a long time, he was known as Pastor Smith. But in 1991 he was decreed and declared an Apostle, a man chosen by God to establish the work of the ministry in this city, this region and the world.
Apostle Smith is a native of Tylertown, MS and is married to Shirley Smith, a native of Brookhaven, MS. They have three (3) children, Joshua, John, and Gweneka. Apostle Smith has pastored First Baptist Church since 1982. He attended J. J. Gulledge High School in Tylertown and graduated in 1970 with a mind to continue his education.
His heart led him to Alcorn State University. He arrived with no funds to pay his tuition and fees. But by the favor of God, he received a scholarship, which covered the costs. By ambition and favor he graduated with a Bachelors degree in Social Studies. He later received a Masters degree in guidance Counseling from Jackson State University. He also studied at Oral Roberts university.
After accomplishing his educational goals, he returned to Tylertown. Since then, he has served this county, community and state in many capacities. He served as County Director of the Walthall County Department of Human Services, board member of "'Faculty Fellow", The Foundation for Mid-South, The March of Dimes Foundation, Mississippi Home Corporation, and board member of the Southwest Health Agency for Rural People. He is also a Certified Behavioral Therapist, certified Addition Specialist, Licensed Social Worker State board Examiners for Social Workers and Marriage and Family Therapists.
It is his God-given goal to restore broken lives, rebuild families, empower people for change by tearing down traditional thinking and raise the standard of living of the oppressed to a standard of excellence by imparting vision in the minds of people in this region and the world. He has traveled locally and internationally and has ministered in several countries including, India, France and Africa, supporting and establishing churches to accomplish this goal.
The vision that God has given Apostle is not just learned it is experienced. God told Apostle Smith to raise up a people who would praise Him, worship Him, learn of Him, obey Him and reach the world with the power of His love. He believes that whoever you are, wherever you are, if you are available, God can use you-your time, talents, and your treasure to help change the world.
A great Spiritual Awakening is now taking place, throughout the world and we have unparallel opportunity to become involved. Apostle Smith believes that the awakening of the first century will be duplicated in our time through the church, the body of Christ, under the direction and control of the Holy Spirit, as Christians win people to Christ, build them in the faith and send them out into ministry of discipleship.
The Spirit of the Lord is raising up a strong testimony to the transforming power of Jesus Christ in this Southwestern portion of Mississippi. As he see the evidence of the dry bones beginning to live again, we are constantly humbled and in awe at this great move of God. He has heard Gods command to reach the unreached for Jesus Christ.
Called for such a time as this, we are honored to have as our Pastor and set man of the First Baptist Church Cathedral of Deliverance Apostle Walter J. Smith.
