Ministers

Bishop Harry P. Davis

Bishop Harry P. Davis

Bishop Harry P. Davis was ordained a Minister by the East Alabama Conference of Christian Churches, and ordained again as a Bishop of Templar Church in 2013.

 He is alumni of Grace Bible School in Wyoming, Michigan, just outside of Grand Rapids, University of South Alabama in Mobile Alabama and Wheaton College in Wheaton Illinois. “We should never cease to further our education whether through life experiences or formal education”, is a phrase the Bishop likes to use as encouragement towards wisdom and empathy in this world of many situations requiring both.

Three missionary visits to Honduras after Hurricane Mitch gave great insight into suffering around the world, in places which never see a reporter.  Spending time with the homeless in the U.S. opened new insights to the plight of innocents who get trapped in situations where there is no escape unless they have champions.

Bishop Davis has been in the ministry for over 30 years, mainly pastoring small country churches who lost their minister. Bishop Davis is now retired and able to minister full-time.  Locally, he is involved in Freedom Church in Daphne, Alabama.  He also enjoys historical writing and research and is now writing his second book, “Princes and Pirates of America.”
