Reverend Day is a native of New Orleans, La. As the son of a Deacon and Sunday School Superintendent, and later Minister of the Gospel, he was very active in the church throughout his youth. However, it was not until he had left his home in New Orleans to attend the University of Maryland that he came to know the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal savior in March 1977.
One year later while meditating on God’s Word, he felt God’s call to the ministry, to preach and teach the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Rev. Day has a tremendous burden for the lost, and his deepest desire is that they come to know Jesus as personal savior and experience the abundant life that He offers. He also possesses a passion for making disciples for Jesus Christ. He longs to see God’s people grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and come to know and experience God more fully through the proper understanding of His Word. After serving at Riverdale Baptist Church for seven years, he moved on to Mt. Calvary Baptist Church of Lanham, MD, where he served as the Senior Associate Pastor and Minister of Education for seven years. Reverend Day has served as Pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church for 28 years.
God has blessed his ministry, providing opportunities to minister nationally and internationally. He has ministered in Mexico, South America, Africa and various places around the country. He is the former President of the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware and has also served as President of the African American Advisory Council to the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware. He currently serves as the President of the National African American Fellowship of the Southern Baptist Convention. Rev. Day is also an active member of the Prince George’s Baptist Association.
Rev. Day holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business from the University of Maryland and a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies from Capital Bible Seminary. Rev. Day met his lovely wife Pamela while studying at the University of Maryland. They have three children; two daughters Rochelle and Melissa and one son David and eight grandchildren.
