A Message From Pastor Cash

Pastor Brian A. Cash and the East Mt. Zion Baptist Church Family issues the following statement; “We are saddened to announce the passing of our Pastor Emeritus Reverend A. Charles Bowie.”

Reverend A. Charles Bowie, Pastor Emeritus of East Mt. Zion Baptist Church, transitioned from this life on Tuesday morning, September 8, 2020. Dr. Bowie served as Pastor of East Mt. Zion from January, 1978 until his retirement April 5, 2019.

The East Mt. Zion family, while recognizing the authority of our LORD, holds many precious memories of Pastor Bowie’s preaching, praising, and leading the flock – from cradle through senior age – to understand that ‘if you have the faith, God has the power.’

Pastor Bowie, known across the country as a powerful Preacher and Psalmist, served in positions in our City, State and National Baptist organizations. Following his leadership, many members of East Mt. Zion were blessed to hold prominent positions in the General Missionary Baptist Association of Ohio; the National Baptist Congress and the National Baptist Convention of America.

He fought the good fight, finished the race, he kept the faith.

“Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.”
