Friendly Temple opens Midwest BankCentre bank branch
It was something that you don’t see every day. A black banker was praying on the pavement in front of a Baptist church. He was praying for the prosperity of a new bank branch that the church was opening on its campus and the well-being of the community served by the church – and, now, by the bank.
The senior pastor of the church – Pastor Michael F. Jones of Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church, 5553 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in the Wells-Goodfellow neighborhood of North St. Louis – thinks it has never happened before, but could set a new standard.
