JAMES R. GREER
James Randals Greer was born near Pikeville, Tennessee, September 23, 1904, the son of Mose S. and Mary Etta Hixson Greer. James was graduated from the Bledsoe County High School in 1918 as valedictorian of his class. He later attended Lipscomb College three years. He also did some work in George Peabody College and in Harding Graduate School. James Greer taught a few months in a Bledsoe County Elementary School, one year in a Junior High School at Lobelville, Tennessee, and two years as instructor in Mathematics in the old City school at Cookeville, Tennessee. While at Cookeville, he baptized 26 at the Broad Street Church, and did considerable preaching at Crossville, Monterey and in Jackson County. Brother Greer began full-time ministry with the Grant Street Church of Christ in Decatur, Alabama, in 1927. He afterward served congregations in Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas. He has held meetings and preached in 16 states. He was married to Robbie B. McCanless, of Nashville, Tennessee, in 1929. The Greers have two sons: Charles Robert, a salesman; and Mitchell Sewell, who preached ten years in Sweden, and is now preaching on Sundays at Melvin, Texas; and one daughter, Dorothy Mary Greer, who is Deputy Commissioner of Corrections for the State of Tennessee. Brother Greer did mission work in Scott County, Tennessee, five and one-half years under the direction of the Oneida elders. He worked two and one-half years with the Oliver Springs congregation. The Greers have made their home at 964 Caldwell Lane, Nashville, Tennessee, the past 22 years, and Brother Greer has been preaching for years for the Jones Chapel Church near Franklin, Tennessee. We salute Bro. James Greer for long and faithful service to the Cause of Christ and commend him as a worthy example for young men to follow.
