Rev Dr F. O. Hockenhull
by Pastor Anthony A K Hodge Sr
When I begin to think of the man listed above my eyes well up tears and heart beats shallow. I am blessed to have "my dad" as pastor~ mentor~ confidant~ guide~ teacher~ friend and father in the ministry. He has been pastor of the First Trinity Missionary Baptist Church of Flint, Michigan, for over "forty" years (a generation), he has been married to his beautiful, intelligent, spirit-filled, God-fearing wife for over "fifty" years (highlighted in Jet magazine).
They are both very active in the community, state, local and national politics. They are very active in the district, state and National Baptist Convention USA Inc. where they have both held lofty national positions recently Dr. Miriam Hockenhull (National Director of the Young People Department), pastor (Special Assistant to the President of the convention). One would believe with such notable accomplishments that there could be would be an air of arrogance, not so this God loving family are the epitome humble service. Pastor F. O. Hockenhull you have prepared your "son in the ministry" for the daunting challenge of shepherding God’s flock. Thank you Lord for my PASTOR!!!
