Maxton- Shoeheel Holiness Methodist Church (SHMC) celebrated a great moment during its worship service this morning when it lifted the Reverend Josh Locklear from Exhorter to Local Pastor status the day was all the more special because the newly elected Conference Superintendent, the Reverend Anthony Chavis was there to participate in the historical moment. Brother Josh is much loved by his local church which has a great deal of confidence in his ability to share the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He was charged to preach the Gospel and to always remember that it is all about Jesus. He is the son of the Reverend and Mrs. Neal Locklear who currently serves as the pastor and first family of Hopewell Holiness Methodist Church in Rowland.
