Seaway Bank and Trust by action of their attorney J. Mark Franklin III have given public notice of their intent to foreclose on Mt. Carmel Baptist Church property and sell it at the main door of the Paul B. Johnson Chancery building on November 7th, 2012 between 11:00am and 4:00pm. Seaway Bank and Trust said there was a default of the terms and conditions of the agreed upon deed of trust. Seaway Bank and Trust went on to say they had previously requested the indebtedness be paid.
The Pastor of the Church is Mr. Kenneth Fairley. Many people don’t know but the church is also home to a private school for early childhood development; so this potentially affects many families and children.Pastor Fairley told the Hattiesburg Patriot, “There will not be a foreclosure. God will work this out.” Mr. Fairley is known as a rather flamboyant, dapper, and polished orator.
