Brother A. Smith Chambers, 20, a 1924 graduate of David Lipscomb University, is recognized as being the congregation's first minister during the period of time in which the group conducted worship services at Gilbert School. Because of his youth, news articles of the day referred to Brother Chambers as the "Boy Preacher." Smith Chamber's brother, Frank, also preached to the congregation numerous times. -- History, Sherrod Avenue Church of Christ, Florence, AL.

They reared one son, the late Smith Chambers, who was tragically taken by death at the age of twenty-two. He was a brilliant preacher. The writer had the honor of claiming him as "one of his boys." - H. Leo Boles, Gospel Advocate.
