The newspaper adds that Rev. Moody "was previously executive pastor at Mt. Bethel Baptist Church in Fort Lauderdale and a co-pastor at Jackson Memorial Baptist Church in Atlanta from 1999 to 2002. He founded Luke 12:48, an independent counsulting firm, in Atlanta... The Rev. Samuel P. Pettagrue Jr., senior pastor of Sardis Baptist for 35 years, has announced he plans to retire in June 2006 and has recommended Moody as his successor."
