Memorial Biographies of General Baptist Ministers
REV. E. L. GRANT
The Rev. E. L. Grant, was born March 31, 1887. He accepted Christ as his Savior in July, 1905, and joined Pleasant Valley church, which later was moved to Clay, Ky., and is now the Clay General Baptist church. He was baptized by Rev. D. L. Fraser. He served as a deacon for 37 years. He felt the call to preach, and one day while at work in the mines he surrendered to the call. That was in March 1945. Then in April of the same year he opened a mission in Springfield, Ill, which ran for a year and a half. While there he preached 180 times and witnessed eleven conversions. Due to poor health he was forced to leave there, so he moved back to Clay. He was licensed to preach in March 1949, and was ordained to the full work of the ministry in March, 1952.
In July of 1952 he moved his membership to Frederick's Chapel, and is the pastor of that church. As pastor he has preached 90 sermons, conducted 6 funerals, and baptized one. While his health is poor, yet he is serving his Lord in a fine way.
