Effective Preacher to address Chapel-Forum

Nov. 3, 1997

The Rev. James A. Forbes, recognized by Baylor as one of the 12 'most effective preachers' in the English speaking world, will speak to students at 10 a.m. today during Chapel-Forum in Waco Hall.

'I would much rather preach than eat,' Forbes often is quoted as saying.

Forbes has preached to all races all throughout the world.

Forbes is the first African-American to serve as senior minister of one of the largest multicultural congregations in America.

He is currently pastor of The Riverside Church, an interracial church associated with the American Baptist Churches and the United Church of Christ.
