Marion Clark, Jr.
I grew up going to a Baptist church. It seemed that every time the church doors were opened, my family and I were walking through them. My dad would make my brothers and I read scriptures out loud every night before we went to bed. This is the reason why Proverbs 22:6 is my favorite scripture. As I got older I did not depart from it. It was years later after attending several worship services with my uncle Al Lesesne (West End member) that I asked the question “What is the difference in being baptized in this church, (West End) and the Baptist church. He then taught me the difference until 1 or 2 o’clock in the morning and I was baptized that next Sunday.
As my knowledge of the church and the importance of the leadership role and its functions grew, my desire to become a deacon grew. My priority is to ensure that I’m meeting the needs of the congregation. I met my wife Tina at West End and we have 3 children, Trinity, Marion III and Mason.
