This was a 300 mile round trip, and after 4 months it was decided that he should return to St. Paul Apostolic Church (resident church at the time). The seed of pastorate had been planted in his heart. In 1983 the Lord led Bishop (Elder) Hall to start a church in Thomasville, North Carolina.
Today our pastor has been in the pastorate for over 30 years. He has received an earned doctorate in Theology, (Th.D) and likewise he has earned a doctorate degree in religious philosophy (Ph.D).
Dr. Gary Reckart wrote to Bishop Hall saying, "Greetings Dr. Hall: On December 9, 2002 you enrolled with Apostolic Theological Bible College. Since that time you have earned the Bachelor, Master, and Doctors Degrees. On November 10, 2011 you have finally earned your Degree in Philosophy, Congratulations. May Jesus bless you more and more, Sincerely, Dr. G. Reckart.
