Just before the scheduled time a national prayer call to uplift Pastor Dr. Charles E. Booth was to take place it was announced that he had transitioned after his battle with cancer.
A Facebook message of his transition was posted on the Mt. Olivet Baptist Church Facebook page
Booth has been a pillar in the Columbus community for over 41 years not only from the pulpit but also serving on several boards and committees. According to the Mt. Olivet Baptist Church website, “Dr. Booth earned his Bachelor of Arts degree at Howard University and his Master of Divinity degree from Eastern Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He earned the Doctor of Ministry degree from United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio where he serves as a member of the Board of Trustees. In 2016 he received the Distinguished Ministry Award from United Theological Seminary.”
Pastor Dr. Charles E. Booth leaves behind Crystal Washington Booth and their daughter, Kennedy. Condolences to the Booth family and to the Mt. Olivet Baptist Church Family, our prayers are with you at this time of mourning.
