The above photo was taken from the November 1980 Baptist New Yorker. ABC/NYS is pleased that Rev. Wes Smith and Rev. Dr. Paul Bailey are still faithfully serving in New York State! Rev Smith is pastor at First Baptist Church of Hamilton and Dr. Bailey is serving at Eastwood Baptist Church in Syracuse.
Rev. Smith's 2013 Update: "God is so good, for sure. The joy of the Lord continues to be my strength in daily pastoral ministry...and in all of life. On June 20, I will celebrate my 37th anniversary of my ordination. Hard to believe...I rejoice at what God has done and continues to do through Christ's Church."
