                    50 YEARS OF MINISTRY

             The Reverend Norwood Seymour was saved in 1949 under the ministry of Evangelist Will Smith of Eight Mile, Alabama, during a revival at Central Assembly of God, in Biloxi, Mississippi.

He and Naomi Ruth Schmidt united in marriage in October 1950.  They have three children, Norwood Jr., Of Biloxi, Deborah Wedgeworth of St Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, and David Alan of Eagle River, Alaska.

The Seymour's have pastored Assemblies of God churches in Mississippi, Tennessee and Louisiana. In Mississippi they have pastored Bay St. Louis, Latimer A/G, Latimer A/G, in Biloxi, First A/G, Waynesboro, First A/G, Biloxi, Columbus, First A/G, Shubuta, Northside A/G, Biloxi, Grace A/G, New Albany and currently First A/G, Gulfport.

The Seymour's have also traveled extensively across the United States in Evangelistic meetings, Camp meetings and teaching seminars with an emphasis on prophecy and Tabernacle studies.

Brother Seymour’s First Assemblies of God credential was issued by the Mississippi District, signed by the then General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God, Rev. Ralph M. Riggs.

Brother Seymour’s secular employment in the Marine oil-producing industry took him to many parts of the world, England, The Netherlands, North Sea, Middle East, Persian Gulf, Mexico, Gulf of Mexico, and Santa Barbara Channel, California.  He achieved the rank of Captain of the High Seas.  For nine years he managed the largest Marine equipment program in the world, covering a territory from West Africa to the Philippines and Alaska, to Tierra Del Feugo Islands, South America..

Brother and Sister Seymour still serve the Lord with their hallmark of enthusiasm and devotion. They are loved and appreciated by their church congregation, minister friends, the Mississippi District and of course, their family.
