Horton marks 10 years as pastor of Elkdale Baptist, Selma

Cory Horton says his “greatest joy” of serving as pastor of Elkdale Baptist Church, Selma, for the past decade is “watching church members grow in their walk with the Lord.”

Horton celebrated 10 years at the church May 2.

Before coming to Elkdale, Horton served at Shocco Springs Baptist Conference Center in Talladega.

During his time at the Selma church, he has led the congregation verse by verse through more than 19 books of the Bible.

He’s also helped lead the church to adopt an Acts 1:8 missions strategy.

Horton credits the longevity of pastoring Elkdale to “the faithfulness of God, strong leadership from staff and deacons as well as the wonderful loving congregation.” (TAB)
