Biographical excerpt
FROM THE CHALICE AND THE COVENANT, Mark Sexton 1976 WS NC Pge 5
************************************************
"When the first session of the NCBA convened in 1873, there were four ordained negro ministers present: Elder Dred A Goins, George Washington Goins, JC Greer and Thomas Jones. All these men were long time residents of the area and ex-slaves who had been emancipated only a few years before. All these men had been ordained at the Shoal Creek Church of the Mountain Union Baptist Association by Elder Isaac Landreth of the Mt Carmel Union Baptist Church. After their ordination, these ministers had been sent out by Elder Landreth and the MUBA to preach to and organize the Negroes of the region into churches. The date of this ordination is unknown but it probably occurred shortly after the organization of the Union Baptist Association in in 1867".
