Alliance starts with vision followed by pastors
Hinds County Ministerial Alliance is a non-profit Bible based organization and is operated by several pastors and ministers of the Bolton and surrounding communities. It was founded in 2015 by Pastor Clyde Robinson and was properly organized with the naming of officers and board members in 2018. It was granted its non-profit 501c3 status in 2021.
The pastors followed their vision and opportunity to acquire the Hinds County school building that was previously named the Main Street Restart Center. The vision to acquire this school building for the community came to Rev. George Farrell and was supported and assisted by the other pastors and board members.
He said “this is by-far a blessing orchestrated by God.”
The pastors and clergies currently meet for Bible study and/or Bible training each Saturday morning at 9 a.m. in the Ministerial Alliance meeting room. This study is open to clergies and anyone who wishes to attend. The vision is to make this facility accessible to the Bolton and Hinds County community for meetings and other group activities that will enhance the economic, social, physical and spiritual well-being of the residents. The ministry is open to receiving donations, grants, gifts, in-kind and volunteer help.
Rev. George Ferrell, president, is a resident of Clinton and a pastor of New Hope Baptist Church in Edwards. He is president of the Hinds County Baptist Association and has served on various councils, including on Clinton’s Board of Aldermen for a number of years. Rev. Ferrell was instrumental in acquiring the 501c3 non-profit status and other legal requirements for the Ministerial Alliance.
Rev. Clyde Robinson, vice president, is a resident of Bolton and serves as the pastor of Discipline and Disciples Church in Bolton. He is president of the Hinds County Congress of Christian education, founder of the Hinds County Ministerial Alliance and is a well-respected pastor of the community.
