Pastor Todd Stewart says if he could only choose one word to describe Randall Reeves, it would be this — excellence.
Reeves, who is retiring after 27 years as minister of music at First Baptist Church of Saks in Anniston, “has been a dedicated servant to the Lord, a man of unquestionable character and a co-laborer in the ministry,” Stewart said. “Everything Randall did for the Lord was done with excellence. Regardless of whether it was preparing the choir, editing the bulletin, formatting the multimedia, or designing worship services, Randall gave full effort and put his full heart into everything.”
Reeves and his wife, Elaine, have “certainly made a great team in ministry,” Stewart said.
Over his 46 total years in ministry, Reeves also has served in staff roles at churches including Rosedale Baptist Church, Tuscaloosa; Cottondale Baptist Church; and Whites Chapel Baptist Church (now The Church at Wills Creek), Gadsden. He also played piano on three albums for soloists, recorded a solo piano project, and led choir, orchestra and worship for many special services.
The church will host a recognition service for them Nov. 7 at 10 a.m. and a reception from 2 to 4 p.m. All present and former choir members are invited to sing in the choir. Rehearsal will be held the two previous Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m.
