The congregation of Broadmoor Baptist Church voted overwhelmingly on Sunday, September 25, to call Dr. Leonard Ezell as its next pastor.
Leonard and his family—wife Stephanie and boys Jack (10) and Taylor (4)—will move to Baton Rouge at the end of October and he will begin his ministry on November 1.
Dr. Ezell comes to us from Northwest Baptist Church in Ardmore, OK after a comprehensive nation-wide search. He previously served churches in Union Point, GA, Newnan, GA, Walnut Ridge, AR, and Corning AR. Leonard is a native of Paragould, AR and grew up on a rice farm in the Arkansas Delta with his parents and two younger brothers.
Dr. Ezell earned his BA from Williams Baptist College in Religious Studies, his Master of Divinity from McAfee School of Theology at Mercer University, and his Doctor of Ministry in Christian Spirituality from Columbia Theological Seminary.
As we prepare to celebrate our sixtieth anniversary as a church next year, the people of Broadmoor are excited to see where this new chapter in our church life takes. Welcome, Leonard, Stephanie, Jack, and Taylor!
