Approximately 1500 individuals (including the Honorable Ashton Hayward, Mayor, City of Pensacola, and Escambia County Commissioner Marie Young, District 3) are expected to be in attendance at the Installation of the 13th President of the National Primitive Baptist Convention, USA, on Monday evening, February 20, six o’clock, at Zion Hope Primitive Baptist Church, 201 West Leonard Street, Pensacola, Florida. Elder (Doctor) Bernard C. Yates, pastor of Zion Hope Primitive Baptist Church, Pensacola, Florida and a product of Bishop College, Dallas, Texas will officially be installed as the organization’s 13th president by Dr. Thomas W. Samuels, President-Emeritus and 11th President of the National Primitive Baptist Convention, USA, who will lead the Act of Installation. Dr. Jonathan L. Yates, pastor of El Bethel Primitive Baptist Church, Mobile, AL (the brother of the new president) will deliver the Installation Message at the Installation Worship Service. (When installed, Elder Yates will become the sixth leader from the State of Florida to have served as general president of the National Primitive Baptist Convention, USA since its inception.)

A native of Mobile, Alabama and the son of Mother Maggie B. Yates and the late Deacon Robert L. Yates, Sr., President Yates became pastor of Zion Hope Primitive Baptist Church, Pensacola, in 1985—after having served as pastor of Mt. Lebanon Primitive Baptist Church in Waxahachie, Texas for 9 years. As pastor of Zion Hope—a fast growing church, Elder Yates led the Zion Hope Family of Faith into a 27,000 square foot multi-purpose complex known as the Center of Hope for Family and Community Life in 2003.

Presently, he serves on a number of boards and advisory councils in the Pensacola area.

Elder Yates is married to the former Vonda Allen and they have one daughter, LeBrea.

Representing churches in 18 states, its mission is to promote unity among its people; foster the cause of education, evangelism, and mission; and participate in worship experiences.
The public is invited to attend.
