The 70th Anniversary Committee



In 1947 Faith Presbyterian Church was the first black Presbyterian church to be organized in Jackson, MS. One day Ms. Sally Cade was passing by and saw the building being erected.  She inquired its name and in reply she was told that no name had been selected.  Quickly came her suggestion that it be named Faith Presbyterian Church.  This was indeed an appropriate name because it required great faith to put up a building like this without a single negro Presbyterian in the city.  During the next stated meeting of the Jackson Presbyterian Council, her suggestion was presented and met with the Council's approval.

Attesting the personality, the dedication, ability and zeal of the organizing minister, Rev. Wayman J. Gipson, on December 28, 1947, the initial worship service was held.
