A well-known north Georgia minister, who once served as interim pastor of First Baptist Church in Gainesville, has died.<br />
Family lore has it that Kent Anglin, 76, began preaching from the back step of a tricycle on a dusty Covington mill village street when he was only 4 years old. At 15 he was licensed to preach, and he was ordained as a Baptist minister by the age of 20. He went on to earn both a master's and eventually his doctorate degree from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky.<br />
During his lifetime he pastored at Oxford Baptist in Oxford, Ga., and spent 16 years at the First Baptist Church in Hartwell. He served in leadership positions as interim pastor at First Baptist in Gainesville, First Baptist Church in Cornelia, Northside Drive Baptist in Atlanta, First Baptist in Auburn, Ala., and First Baptist Church of Athens. He also served as president of Tallulah Falls School and sat on the board of trustees at Mercer University.<br />
A Celebration of Life Service is planned for 2 p.m. Sept. 13 at First Baptist Church in Athens. <br />
