NEW BROCKTON, Ala. (WDHN)—A very special occasion for a man who has dedicated his life to “spreading” the word of the lord in the western wiregrass.

In 1992, Dr. John Granger became director of the Coffee Baptist Association
based in New Brockton.

On Sunday, many state and local religious leaders attended the “renaming” ceremony of the
Baptist association building in honor of Dr. Granger.

When Dr. Granger came to Coffee County in 1992, the total gifts to the
association program was 62-thousand dollars.

Last year, that amount had grown to 250-thousand.
