In the fall of 1988, the Lord led Pastor Morris, his wife, and two children to the high desert of Tucson, Arizona. God has blessed the faithfulness and preaching ministry of Pastor Morris. Under his leadership, God has taken a small handful of members with a rented building on the east side of Tucson and given them a property in Marana with a congregation that has a desire to serve God and see people reached with the Gospel. After 33 years in Marana, Arizona, Pastor Morris retired from pastoring at Sun and Shield Baptist Church on December 12, 2021. He and his wife, Debbie, relocated to North Carolina to be closer to their daughter, Amber. They desire to continue to be used by God in this new chapter of life.
