HOLINESS CHURCH

Harris Chapel started out having church under a brush arbor near the site where the church now stands. Lee Phillips started preaching in the old red stone building that Mr. Dunkin used to keep. Lee may have been the first pastor.

The new block church was started around 1954, and completed in 1955 or 56? Lee Phillips, Lester Dunkin, and Russel Wooten were the first and only trustees. They borrowed money from a bank to buy the material to build the new church. Several people worked on building the church, Lee Phillips, Lester Dunkin, Russell Wooten, Edd Wooten, Jim Laney, Ernest Daniel, Gordon McBryar, Fred Collins, Bobby Cameron and many more. Over the years, many preachers have preached there. To name a few, Check Durham, Lester Dunkin, Lee Phillips, Jim Laney, Shorty Stephens, Mr. Shipley, Rev. Lawery, Jack Ford, Rev. Lucin Hights and Bobby Cameron. Present Pastor is Danny Stephens.
