property next to the classrooms and it was used as income property. Bro. Lamar served with the congregation until his retirement in 1987.
During a search for a minister to lead the congregation, Bro. Thomas Campbell worked with the congregation until the appointment of Bro. John Davis. Under his leadership, the congregation thrived and many souls were added. A decision was soon made to enlarge the building to include a fellowship hall and kitchen. This area would also be used as classroom space because the small house was torn down to create additional square footage for the addition and for parking spaces. Bro. Davis worked with the congregation until he became ill in 1994. But, just like God provided a ram in the bush for Abraham, the congregation was immediately blessed with an able minister to carry on the work.
Bro. A. B. Alford began the work in 1994 and under his leadership, Magnolia Park saw many changes in its building program. Property was acquired on the west side of the building and a small house on the corner across from the building. In January of 2003, the old building was demolished to make way for the new edifice. The congregation began worshipping at the Victoria Manor Church of Christ in Liberty City, where Bro. Martin was minister, while the construction was underway. Many delays hampered the efforts, but the members never lost faith in God and his ability to see this project completed.
