Mark Williams switched gears from sports to the pulpit years ago and has never looked back, especially now that he is the newly installed pastor at an historic church in Louisville.

“It’s a great church; I’m thrilled to pastor here at Walnut Street Baptist,” he said of his new post, a church founded in 1848 when two Baptist churches in downtown Louisville joined.
