Center Broadcasting Community Spotlight of the Week

It’s now time for the Center Broadcasting Community Spotlight of the Week.  This Week’s Community Spotlight will be shedding light on a purpose driven man who is answering a higher calling.  We would like to highlight Bishop W.C Martin, Senior Pastor of the Bennett Chapel Missionary Baptist Church and Founder of the Saving a Generation outreach program.  Bishop Martin and his wife Donna not only want to spread the life changing word of God, but also have a heart for children and desire to spread the love of God to those in need.  The Saving a Generation outreach program was formed in 2000 in order to facilitate, support, and under gird the adoption and fostering of children who have been abused and neglected.  As a result of the Martins hard work and perseverance, the lives of 76 children have been dramatically changed through adoption.  The Martin’s have two biological children of their own along with four adopted children.  Bishop Martin and the Saving a Generation program have received nationwide recognition.  He has been a guest on numerous television programs such as Oprah, Dateline NBC, Good Morning America, 48 Hours, TBN, The 700 Club and others. Bishop Martin has also been featured in countless magazines and newspapers and is also a keynote speaker for conferences and seminars across the country.  He has also authored a book entitled “Small Town, Big Miracle: How Love Came to the Least of These.”  In 2005, the TV show "Renovate My Family" came to Possum Trot and spent three weeks building the Martin’s a beautiful 10,000 square foot gymnasium and learning center.  At one time, the building was busy with after school programs, summer programs and feeding the hungry. This past Christmas, Walmart and the Today Show stepped up and surprised the community of Possum Trot with an abundance of food, clothes and other necessities for the individual families in the community as well as for the community's Youth Center. A Christmas gift was also given to each of the foster children.  The Martin's outreach building with so much potential to help people, now sits empty due to lack of funding.  In spite of all the negativity and financial despair, Bishop Martin is on a mission to impact lives.  We to want to sincerely thank Bishop Martin for his countless hours of hard work and tireless dedication to the children and families of Shelby County.
