Macedonia Baptist Church History
Macedonia Baptist Church was founded and organized in 1936 by the late Rev. James Eugene. By 1945, the church’s doors were closed because Rev. Eugene’s work kept him away from the congregation for weeks at a time, but God had plans for this building. In July of 1947, Rev. Eugene entrusted the church’s leadership to a servant sent by God. Rev. McKinley B. Meacham reopened the doors and with a few faithful members began the work of rebuilding the Church. It was at this time that Rev. Meacham single-handedly constructed all the pews and the pulpit furniture. Two years later the church ministries were established and the Church began to grow.
In 1965, the church was relocated from its founding location at 609 Cohen Street to its present location.
The church building was renovated in 1969 and again in 1991, all under the leadership of Rev. M. B. Meacham. In 2005, Macedonia sustained substantial damage as a result of Hurricane Katrina, which resulted in a major interior renovation.
God has truly blessed us throughout the years to reach out into the community in an effort to bring souls to Christ. We have had many good (and some not so good) times. We have seen many come, go, and come back again. But, through it all, we have learned to trust God for everything.
In October of 1996, Rev. Meacham retired from his Pastorship of this great Church. God sent us another anointed servant, Rev. Albert C. Mickel. Rev. Mickel was installed as Pastor of Macedonia Baptist Church on February 21, 1997. In his tenure, Pastor Mickel has proven to be a dynamic teacher, preacher and friend.
On July 27, 2003, the Lord called Rev. McKinley B. Meacham home to his final rest. He will be sadly missed by the members of Macedonia Baptist Church but his legacy will live in our hearts and minds forever.
An addition to the teaching ministries of Macedonia, a tutorial education department has been established. To date, it is recognized by Louisiana as a model program in the state. It has been emulated by various other tutorial programs within the region and state.
God is still blessing us and Macedonia continues to be a beacon in this community. We have come this far by faith, leaning and trusting in the Lord. As you can see, great works are in progress here at Macedonia. It is our prayer that we continue to trust and stay committed to the true and living Word of God.
