Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church will install Rev. J. Lawrence Turner as its senior pastor in a ceremony that begins at 4 p.m. Sunday at the church, 70 N. Bellevue.
Turner, a Nashville native, was elected senior pastor in January and began his tenure on Easter. He is following Dr. Frank Thomas, who stepped down last year to lead the new institute for African-American studies at Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis.
Turner’s father is Rev. James Turner Sr., pastor of New Hope Baptist Church in Nashville.
