We all have defining moments in our lives – times when things happen that change our trajectory.  These moments can be positive or negative, but they always lead us to reflect on His power and goodness.  I can point to many defining moments in my life, but September 8, 2019 now ranks among the most impactful of those moments.  It is on this day that i was installed as Pastor of St. Matthews Baptist Church.  What a marvel and a blessing it is when God opens such a door, reaffirming my calling and placing me one step closer to advancing His kingdom through leadership and service at this great church. 

As I take on this important role I would be remiss if I didn't thank the Rev. Dr. Maxwell M. Washington who faithfully served as Pastor for 50 years, retiring on May 31, 2019.  His decades of spiritual leadership will live on at St. Matthews and in our hearts. He has made an indelible mark on the lives of all he has touched. Our souls overflow with joy at the thought of all he has left through the example he has set for 50 years.  I am blessed to have served as assistant pastor under your tutelage, and look forward to building upon his incredible legacy.  

In His service,

Reverend Peter R. Blue Sr.
