On Monday, September 18, 2013, Pastor Xavier L. Thompson will be installed as the new president of the Baptist Ministers Conference of Los Angeles and Southern California. The installation ceremony will take place at Southern Missionary Baptist Church located at 4678 W. Adams Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90016, beginning at 11:00am.

Pastors, Clergy and members from neighboring churches are invited to attend. Dr. Jasper Williams, Jr. of Salem Bible Church in Atlanta, Georgia will serve as guest speaker for the ceremony and the BMC Mass Choir are also set to perform.

Pastor Thompson has made history as the youngest conference member to ever be elected as President; winning against the incumbent President Dr. Marvis L. Davis (118-64) back in January.

Since 2008, Pastor Thompson and his wife, Lady Rinnita Thompson have led Southern Missionary Baptist Church with the motto “One Church for All Generations.” Their tireless efforts to uplift and empower the 600+ member congregation through various ministries and community outreach efforts, have given both seasoned and young members a safe haven for continued fellowship and spiritual enlightenment.
