Macel Pate Falwell Tells the Real Story of Jerry Fallwell


Macel Pate and Delore Pate played and sang for Dad in the church and on Radio,.

Macel Pate Fallwell said in the video that the church she attended  the pastor had left (that would be my Dad) 

The    real story was that Macel Pate was playing the piano in the church Park Ave Baptist Church in Lyncbhurg VA. where my Dad was the Pastor. Dad left and went to Roaonoke. The church in Lynchburg got another pastor who was not very good. A group of people wanted to start another church. It is my understadning that my Dad was called to help out this group and start another church and they called it Thomas Road Baptist Church.
