The largest church in Memphis – and the second largest Presbyterian Church in the country – has announced a new senior pastor. But he's no stranger to the church.
Hope Church has named the Rev. Rufus Smith IV, its current senior associate pastor, to lead the church. Current Senior Pastor Dr. R. Craig Strickland will maintain a very active and visible role within the church in his new position as founding pastor.
Smith will be installed into his new role the weekend of Nov. 16-17.
