The members of historic Kayne Avenue Missionary Baptist Church, located at 1025 12th Ave. South, are extending an invitation to the Nashville community to join them in honoring their pastor, Rev. Harmon E. Stockdale, Jr. The membership of Kayne Avenue has planned an Appreciation Day to show Rev. Stockdale that his labor and love does not go unnoticed. Rev.

The members of Kayne Avenue Missionary Baptist Church are extending an invitation to all of Nashville and the surrounding communities to share in this special celebration.
“Kayne Avenue is blessed with a wonderful and caring pastor,” said Deacon and Chairman Odie Jones. “He has worked tirelessly to make Kayne Avenue one that is a testament of God’s love, forgiveness, and mercy.”
