From The Pastor

“It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for work of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”  -Ephesians 4:11-13 (NIV)


pastorCI greet each of you in the Mighty and Matchless Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. One hundred twenty six years ago He established our great church and He is continuing to bless this ministry beyond our comprehension. We are eternally grateful for the great investment that He has made in us as we continue to strive to impact the Kingdom of Heaven for Him for generations to come by living out our vision statement:

“Making contact to make an impact by building a Community of Hope through loving relationships that model Christ and affirm His lordship in our daily lives.”

On behalf of all of our church family, I welcome you to Rodman Street Missionary Baptist Church. WE are people of the poor in spirit who are thirsty and hungry for God’s mercy and care in everyday of our lives just like YOU. Here at The Street, God is doing awesome things for us, for which we give him all the praise and glory. I hope you visit our church, so we can share our Love of God with YOU.

Rodman Street Missionary Baptist Church welcomes you to join our spiritual journey together.

In His Service,

Rev. Dr. Darryl T. Canady
Senior Pastor
