22. Autrey, JarryJarry Autrey (1952-1954)

Jarry Autrey was born in Louisiana on August 24, 1929. Recently retired as an evangelist, he currently resides in Arlington, Texas.

A second part of the Educational Building was constructed in 1953. In July of that year, letters were granted to thirteen members of the Church who would help in the organization and development of Midway Baptist Church (now First Baptist Church, Woodway).

Later in the year, $300 was contributed to this new congregation. In 1954, the Church voted to call pastors for an indefinite period of time rather than annually. This was a tremendous step in the life of our fellowship.
