First Missionary Baptist Church Holds Anniversary Celebration Service for Pastor Leggett, First Lady

The priority of the preacher is to preach the Gospel, pray for the needy, prepare his church for the work of the Lord, and transform the lives of the church members. But preachers may also be scrutinized and criticized from people who may want to discredit their message.

The First Missionary Baptist Church in Marin City held a celebration service on Sunday 2021 to honor the Rev. Dr. Rondall Leggett and the First Lady Angela Leggett. The service was conducted both in a live service at the church and broadcast on Facebook.

According to the church website, Leggett currently serves as vice moderator at-large of the Progressive Baptist Missionary Educational District Association in Northern California. He is a member of the Leadership Board of the Redwood Empire Baptist Association that provides leadership to 52 churches in Northern California. Leggett is an instructor of Communicating the Gospel and Spiritual Leadership at the North Bay School of Theology at San Quentin State Prison. He is the chairperson for the Marin City Fatherhood Council, which provides support and mentorship to disadvantaged males 11 to 25 years of age.

“I am excited about doing Christ-centered ministry on purpose. My life goal is to reach the lost with the Word of God, teach the saved the Word of God, and release the Saints with the Word of God,” was Leggetts response when he was asked, in the past, about his purpose.

Dr. Rodney Leggett, ThD, pastor of the Cornerstone Missionary Baptist Church in San Francisco, was the guest speaker at the service, and gave the main message whose theme was “Faithful Stewards of God’s Grace.” In his message, Leggett said that preachers are valuable and indispensable, and that their job deals with heavenly matters that have eternal consequences, as they share and communicate the Gospel, that Jesus Christ is the Savior can save man for God.

The priority of the preacher is to preach the Gospel, pray for the needy, prepare his church for the work of the Lord, and transform the lives of the church members. But preachers may also be scrutinized and criticized from people who may want to discredit their message.

Preachers are still ‘flawed vessel’ who could share the Gospel and how God forgives their sins, Dr. Rodney Leggett said in his message.

Pastor Leggett and his wife, Angela, came up to the pulpit to accept the appreciation of the church. Leggett is thankful for all the appreciation from the church family. He also does not know if he could have made it through this year or be here, if not for his wife to encourage him and make sure he will show up to church.

It is hard for Pastor Rodney Leggett to take all this in, especially during the pandemic. Leggett closed the service and said “There are so many people that are hurting right now (due to the pandemic). God chose us to be here. So, make the most of the opportunity to do some good for somebody.”

Congresswoman Barbara Lee, D-Oakland, endorsed Mia Bonta for East Bay Assembly District 18, which includes the cities of Oakland, Alameda and San Leandro.

The special election is being held because seat was vacated by her husband, Rob Bonta, who was appointed California Attorney General by Gov. Gavin Newsom. The remainder of Rob Bonta’s assembly term is through 2022.

Lee tweeted “[l]et’s do this @MiaBonta! The Bay Area is lucky to have such a fierce progressive advocate.”

Bonta thanked Lee via Twitter for her support.

Lee also said of Bonta that she “ . . . will bring a progressive, social, economic and racial justice lens to our state legislature.”

“She will stand up for communities that have been marginalized and underrepresented for too long.  Mia is committed to addressing our community’s most pressing issues, such as homelessness, environmental justice, criminal justice reform, helping families and businesses recover from the pandemic, and reopening schools safely.  Mia has a strong record of serving East Bay children and families,” Lee said.

Mia Bonta is currently board president of the Alameda Unified School District.  She is also endorsed by U.S. Sen. Alex Padilla, Secretary of State Dr. Shirley Weber, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, Oakland City Council members Sheng Thao, Loren Taylor and Treva Reid of districts 4, 6 and 7 respectively; California State Board of Equalization member Malia Cohen, Nate Miley and Keith Carson of Alameda County Board of Supervisors, District 7 BART Director Lateefah Simon; Oakland City Attorney Barbara Parker, Black Women for Political Action (BWOPA) and Equality California among others.

Bonta is running in a field with Mali Vella (who also received Schaaf’s endorsement), Janani Ramachandran, James Aguilar, Eugene Canson, Stephen Slauson, Joel Britton, and Victor Aguilar.

The special primary election is June 29 by mail-in ballot only with the general election set for August 31.
