Elder Woodrow Sexton
1963 – Served as Pastor at Union United Baptist Church
Woodrow Sexton, 81 of Louisa , Kentucky entered into eternal rest January 14, 1996.
Brother Woodrow was a minister of Jesus Christ for over (40) years. He served as pastor for churches in West, Virginia and Kentucky. He traveled as an evangelist throughout the Tri-State Region, and labored long in the vineyard of the Lord. Brother Woodrow’s passing was sad in that we will miss his wise counseling and warm ways. In his life was the testimony of a better place that awaits those, who put their trust in Christ. Brother Woodrow was blessed of God with stamina and a surpassing knowledge of the word of God. Brother Woodrow preached the Gospel as long as his health permitted. And then he lived out the days of failing health as an example of patience through tribulation. His ministry continued until the moment his Heavenly Father called him home. Of all the sermons God blessed him to deliver, including many he preached as a pastor of the Rockcastle United Baptist Church in Inez, KY., his own life was the greatest. And in his life, as in his sermons, Brother Woodrow asked everyone the same question, “What shall (you) do then with Jesus, who is called Christ?”
The following information was taken from the Zion United Baptist Minutes:
