On April 27, 1995, Dr. Shelton Smith became the Sword of the Lord’s third President and Editor.
Dr. Smith testifies often that he is a “product” of The Sword of the Lord. In 1963, someone sent an anonymous subscription to him. Dr. Smith says, “As a result, Dr. Rice re-tutored, re-trained and re-tooled me. My life and ministry changed. My best education came from the pages of The Sword of the Lord.”
As editor, he travels nearly every week, holding Sword campaigns across North America and around the world.
Bro. Morrison answered the call to preach in 1988. He was later ordained in 2003 by his home church, where he served as an assistant to his pastor for a period of two years before being sent out into the ministry.
He has previously served as a senior pastor in both West Virginia and Alabama before accepting the call to become Co-Pastor at Gospel Light Baptist Church in 2019. In 2021, Bro. Morrison became senior pastor.
He is married to Joy, his high school sweetheart and have been blessed with three wonderful children.
