A commissioning service for Betty Taylor, who will serve as the liaison for the Wilson County Governmental Prayer Alliance, will take place Sunday during the 8:30 a.m. service at Immanuel Baptist Church
Wilson County Mayor Randall Hutto and state Rep. Mark Pody will be in attendance for the service along with Joyce Breazeale, executive county liaison of Tennessee Governmental Prayer. Pastor John Hunn with Immanuel Church will preside over the ceremony. Immanuel is Taylor’s home church where she has attended for 34 years.
“Wilson County Governmental Prayer Alliance will serve those in authority in our local government through prayer,” said Marlene Tidwell, state director of the Tennessee Governmental Prayer Alliance. “The state alliance is excited and honored that Betty will serve in this leadership capacity in Wilson County.”
“It is a great comfort to know that there are people out there who care about the job you are doing and that are willing to take the time out of their day to pray for you,” Hutto said. “Having people who care about you for no real reason, but your betterment is very encouraging during the tough times in our job.”
“Our governmental leaders need to know that people in the Christian community are meeting to pray for them, their families and staff,” said Tidwell. “We are here to serve them rather than ask how they can serve us. Our command as Christians is to give thanksgiving for and pray for all those in authority regardless of party affiliation or political views. We will serve through prayer and interaction in order to impact our city in positive and practical ways.”
