First African American President Of SBC Is Fan Of Three Bridges

Nashville, TN (November 14, 2013) History was made on June 19, 2012 when the Southern Baptist Convention elected their first African American President, Dr. Fred Luter. History was also made earlier this month when Dr Luter commented that he is a fan Three Bridges.
Dr. Luter is pastor of Franklin Avenue Baptist church in New Orleans, LA. He grew the church from a remnant 65 people in a white-flight neighborhood to a congregation of more than 8,000. Franklin Avenue is now approaching 5,000 worshipers each Sunday despite the depressed population of the city.
Earlier this month Three Bridges sang to the Louisiana SBC Pastors and church leaders. To the delight of Three Bridges members Elliott McCoy, Shannon Smith, and Jeremie Hudson, Dr. Fred Luter, SBC President commented "I love Three Bridges! I'm their #1 fan!".
Elliott McCoy, manager and Baritone singer stated "What an honor to minister to the Pastors and church leaders of the SBC in Louisiana. They are making a great impact for Christ. It was also a great privilege to be with Dr. Fred Luter and his precious wife, Elizabeth, again! We love them dearly!"
This has been an exciting month for Three Bridges. Lead singer Shannon Smith said “In the space of one month we have ministered at the Tennessee Assemblies of God Pastor's Convention, been featured in the Church of God (Cleveland) Evangel magazine, and now ministered at this convention.”
