Bandow, Ambrose A. (17 Jun 1907 - Dec 1982)

"A new drayman at our house," says William F. Bandow. As he only arrived Monday night, it can hardly be expected that he will take active management of the dray for several years ..........missing content.

History of the Friendship Congregational Bible Church, Baxley, Georgia

“In accordance with a previous notice, a meeting was held at the Court House in the Village of Friendship, July 21, 1867, Rev.’s Perking and Bridgman presiding. A church was organized, named the Congregational Church of Friendship, and… Articles of Faith and a Covenant were adopted.”

Donald Graves left the pastorate (of the Friendship Congregational Bible Church, Baxley, Georgia) in December, 1967 and the congregation called Reverend Ambrose Bandow of Atlanta, Georgia. In June, 1970, a Christian Education Director, Barbara J. Kappel, a Moody Bible Institute graduate, was hired to work with Sunday school teachers and young people. The Sunday school and youth work flourished. During this time the church basement was leased by the school district for use as a classroom, due to the shortage of space in the public schools. Upon the retirement of Ambrose Bandow in the fall of 1974, Reverend Kenneth Mullen of Grand Rapids, Michigan, was called to serve from November, 1974, until July, 1982. A Children's Choir was formed and the church newsletter "The Faithlifter" was published. The lot south of the church was purchased to be used as a parking lot. In July, 1982, Thomas Scholl of Grand Rapids, Michigan, was called to Friendship. Under his administration an active youth program was begun called "Coached by Christ." It involved children from the community as well as church youth. Pastor Scholl served until January, 1986. Pastor Donald Graves once again served the church on a part-time basis until January, 1989. During this period, the church was resided. Pastor David Havard, Niceville, Florida, was called to serve from September, 1989 through August, 1995. Under his leadership, the church By-Laws and Constitution were completely revised. In May, 1996, the congregation selected Pastor Steven Hamilton of Bemidji, Minnesota to serve.
