The three Forks curch of the Living God has been pastored by Clell Muncy, Freddie Dobbs, Booker Riffe,{long ago} I think Troy Payne once, Terry Stacy, so many I can't remember but my brother-in-law probably knows all of them. I will get back to you on these. The Church of Christ in Buckeye was founded by Richard Kennedy, who pastored it for many years. Other Pastors were John Blankenship, Tom Payne, and Charlie Kennedy nephew of Richard. Walter Riffe I think pastored it for awhile. Some of the deacons I remember growing up were Gus Waldron. Jim Waldron, Mose Kennedy, Randolph Kennedy, Jake Bailey. John Wallace Kennedy, Paul Mullins. All of these men are deceased except Charlie Kennedy. I don't know who the pastor is now. The church on the Katfield curve was established by Ayers "Rabbit" Mullins, Elzie Allen and others. Mr. Mullins was the pastor there when I was a young woman. Jimmy Allen son of Elzie is the pastor there now.

I think also Clinton(Snooky)Hopkins pastored the Threeforks Church of the Living God,Hubert Sweeney pastors it now.I think John D.Payne was the only one I can remember that Pastored Jolo Church? Charles Rose pastors now. Can anyone else remember anyone else who pastored there? As for the Jolo Church of Christ,I think Vernon Blankenship,a Church man,forgot his name,brought up in Church of Christ and forgot these MEN'S names(in C.of C. doctrine only MEN can Pastor or preach!!!!)I disagree!That's another topic.

the Jolo Church of Christ has been pastorer by Roscoe Rowe, Vernor Blankenship, Dude Church, Chester Ball, Mike Church was the last pastor I think before it closed it's doors. There is a Food Panty or clothing thing thee now. I believe that Charles Rose owns it. John D. Payne built the Church house there where Charles Rose is at now. I don't know if any of the original building is left. Roger D. Payne may have pastored it after his dad, but I don't really know. Just remember that his wife, Brenda and I used to clean it and John D. wanted us to wear dresses or skirts not pants when we cleaned it. Needless to say, we never minded him! LOL. He would get so mad at us. John D. and Ruth Payne were wonderful people. When I lived in Brenda and Roger's trailer for awhile next to them and Ruth cooked Dinner-what you might call lunch--but a really big dinner then supper too. She always yelled for me to come to eat. She yelled for Cosby Hale, who lived across the road in a little house to come to dinner too. You don't find people like that anymore.

So many many beautiful memories shared by so many. This is an important History of the area and should be kept alive.
Reading of the many pastors of the many churches.
I preached many times at the Church of The Living God there and pastor the Church of the Living God at #2 Yukon a short time before going to College.
The Church of Christ was pastor in the late 40's by Pastor Smith and he had a son Rev Berlin Smith who joined up with the Church of The Living God group. I was converted in the ministry of Pastor Berlin Smith and if you look at photo on the McDowell County, WV website you will see pictures of me baptising in 1950 with many McDowell County preachers. The photo on the website scrow down to Baptizing. I am an old man now and would love to preach one more time at that Church of The Living God at 3 forks we live 500 Mi away. I am married to the Recording Artist radio TV Juanita and she is retired from the music world....

The Rev. Woodrow Shelton was also a pastor at the Three Forks Church Of The Living God for several years. This was my Dad, He went home to be with the Lord in January of 2008. My Dad was truly a great man of God.I miss Him so much, but I know He's in heaven with my Mom,and His loved ones who has went home to be with the Lord also. His works will truly speak for Him. I hope all of His family will get to be with Him some day, because He surely taught us about the Lord.

The church building that later became the Church of Christ in Jolo was a Methodist Church when I was growing up. The Church of Christ at Jolo was a small building slightly over the hill beside the Highway, beside the Wolf Pen Hollow road. There was Shoe Shop next to it. That church building is gone. I think Vernor Blankenship pastored it then, I used to go there with Callie Long and her granddaughter. When the Methodist quit having services in their building the Church of Christ bought that building. George Scott and Roscoe Rowe were co-pastors there in the 60's and 70's.

I knew your Dad and I was a young teenage preacher. I pastor the Church of the Living God in # 2 Yukon for a short time. DID you remember Rev Jack Griffith, I think he is the preacher that baptized your Dad.It was under the bridge at # 1 Yukon if I am right. Perhaps you know if I am right.
I am pleased to meet you. GOD BLESS

Yes, Rev.Jim I knew Rev.Jack Griffith.I saw those pictures of the baptizing you posted on the Mcdowell Co. Website.I had told my family that sort of looks like my mother being bapitized. Can you remember who the people were being baptized? I thought maybe you might have wrote the names on the back of the pictures. I remember my Dad's testimony about when He got saved, and when He got baptized.He had a great testimony for the Lord.I am pleased to meet you also.MAY GOD BLESS YOU
