In Loving Memory of Bishop Lethenial McClam
Bishop Lethanial McClam
Bishop Lethanial McClam is the founding Pastor of Union Disciple Free Will Baptist Church. He had a passion for helping people find life at its best -- which is found in knowing and following Christ. He loved to see people experience Jesus firsthand, grow to love Him, and become strong disciples.
On September 27, 1974, Bishop Lethenial McClam preached his first sermon at Corinth Temple. The subject was "God is Able" from Daniel 3:16. He served as a faithful member there for many years. He became President of the District Union #4 were he was called to Pastor. On June 11, 1978, Union Disciple Free Will Baptist Church opened its doors and on December 12, 1980, he was ordained Bishop under the leadership of the late General Bishop Caldwell Thomas.
Bishop McClam served as the pastor of Union Disciple for 38 years and was instrumental in the growth of the church. He will be dearly missed by all. Yet thanks to his great leadership, teachings, and guidance Union Disciple has been blessed with two young Pastors who have been equipped to carry on the Church’s legacy.
