The growth both financially and
spiritually of the First Baptist Church
East Nashville during the pastorate
of Rev. W. S. Ellington has been
phenomlnal. This church and Its
congregation while representing one 1
of the old land marks of Baptist ad
vancement in the city, had for a num
ber of years before Dr. Ellington took
charge, suffered numerous vicissitudes
and set backs. The greater part of
the congregation had become very
much discouraged and the future of
the church looked very dark. Rev.
Ellington brought to the church Just
the necessary amount of Christian
snergy and spirituality to enable
them to gain courage and resume the
place among first rank churches to
which they were entitled.
It is interesting to note that all the
