James H. Smith’s life story is a testimony to the values of hard work and determination as he obeyed Christ and his call to ministry.
Brother Smith’s efforts in overcoming many obstacles to his education are truly inspirational. To see how God lifted him up from humble beginnings to the many levels of Southern Baptist Convention leadership illustrates how God is faithful to his faithful servants.
Brother Smith was given a great vision for the Brotherhood Commission, and when it was implemented in the power of the Holy Spirit, it brought thousands of souls to Christ.
May the SBC be blessed with many more leaders like him.
