Dr. Howard H. Hall, Pastor

Pastor Howard Hall is a man whom God is using. He is a colorful, down-to-earth, Bible Teacher and Preacher whose easily-understood messages are enjoyed by all ages. He has the unusual ability to make Bible truths come alive as they are applied to lives of those who hear him preach and teach. He has ministered with grace and leadership for over 40 years. His desire is to minister to the needs of the congregation of Shreveport Baptist Temple under his leadership, as well as to the people in the Shreveport-Bossier area.

Upon coming to Shreveport in September of 1973, Brother Hall was greeted with an attendance of 70. Since that time the church has set an attendance record of 1,000 in Sunday School and has witnessed thousands of people publicly profess Christ as their Saviour, with many of those following the Lord in scriptural baptism. The church in one year saw 777 professions of faith and 501 baptisms. The record offering in one Sunday was over $63,000.00.

The church now owns 14-1/2 acres on Flournoy-Lucas Road and i-49. The building seats 500 in the auditorium, and complete Sunday School space along with office administration and Fellowship Hall to seat 150, a Gym with nine Adult Sunday School Classes and a College and Career Class, and a youth ministry as well, with ministries such as a bus outreach covering most of the Shreveport and Bossier area. For all of this, Pastor Hall gives God the credit and glory.

Before coming to Shreveport, Pastor Hall successfully served as Co-Pastor at the Tabernacle Baptist Church in West Memphis, Arkansas. He received his education at West Memphis Sr. High School, Baptist Christian College and now holds a B.S. degree in Pastoral Theology, and a Th.G degree from Baptist Christian University at which time he also was honored with a Certificate Award for Outstanding Christian Man of the 1971 graduating class. The Tri-State Baptist College in Walls, Mississippi honored Bro. Hall with a Doctor of Divinity Degree.

Pastor Hall and his lovely wife, Dian, have two beautiful children, Barbara Delane Wilson and Rebekah Dawn Hall. He and Dian have one grandson, Preston Hall Wilson, and one granddaughter, MaCaughli Caden Wilson.

After 40 years in the same church, with the same board members for over 38 years, our Lord continues to bless with souls being saved and lives being changed. We witness the grace of God and the healing power of His Majesty on a regular basis.

The church continues to grow in attendance and new ministries are being added yearly. The church started a new church in Jonesboro, Arkansas under the leadership of Pastor Hall and our Church Planter, Dr. Gary Winters. Since that time the Shreveport Baptist Temple has helped to start five other New Testament churches. Our motto is “Beyond these doors, God is met, Intercession is made, Mountains are moved.”
