Magnolia First Baptist Church  Male Chrous was organized in 1959 under the direction of the late Rev. C. T. Nelson.  Bro. Willie Horton was the first president of the Male Chorus.  Past presidents include Bro. John Jackson, Bro. George Bryant, Rev. George Richmond, Bro. J. B. Wooden, Bro. Nick Norphlet, Bro. Thomas Gentry, Rev. Michael Jordan, Rev. James Johnson, Bro. Robert Jamison, Bro. James Clark, Bro. Alfonzo Peoples Jr.,  and Minister Justin Terry.  Our current president is Rev. Michael Moore.  The chorus is filled with spiritual and brotherly love and our current membership now stands at 20 members.

We have been blessed down through the years with very talented musicians, which include Bro. Phillips, Sis.  Hattie Wooten, Bro. Oliver Ford, Sis. Nancy Allen, Bro. Thomas Owens, Bro. Darnell Turner, Sis. Linda Gilbert, Bro. Kenneth Massey, Rev. Bruce Branch, Rev. Ronald Jackson, and Bro. Al Shackelford.  Our current musicians are Bro. Larry Vann, Bro. Fred Dudley, and Bro. Melvin Robertson.  Our current director is Bro. Chan Higgenbottom.

In addition, we maintain Christian fellowship with a number of Male Choruses in our area.  We have been delighted to share in fellowship with such fine Christian men. 

The group of men singing with us today and in the past include ministers, deacons, and trustees.  Ministers who are now serving as Pastors at various churches include Rev. James Perry in Nashville, Rev. Leslie Wooten at St. James, Rev. David Glenn at St. Luke – Arkansas, Rev. James Johnson at Bethlehem and our Pastor Emeritus at Smith Chapel – Whiteville, TN.

We love singing songs of praise with God in front of us, Jesus beside us, and the Holy Spirit within our hearts.  In this 55th year of our existence, we are rededicating ourselves to continue worshipping, praising, and growing in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
