George E. Hurtt is the Senior-Pastor of the Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church of Los Angeles.

He is the fourth pastor of the congregation. My father, H.B. Charles, Sr. was the second pastor of the church. He served the congregation for over forty years. I was the third pastor of the church. I served the congregation for almost eighteen years.

During the later years of my tenure at Mt. Sinai, George served as my preaching assistant and pastoral assistant. He was the Executive Pastor of the church, even though we would have never thought to call it that.

After I called to the Shiloh Church in Jacksonville, Mt. Sinai selected George as its new pastor, where he has served for four years. The Lord is blessing their labors for the gospel.

I recently interviewed George, sort of. We actually just reminisced on our friendship and ministry experience together, along with George’s testimony of conversion, call to ministry, and early influences. It is a unique story that I hope you find encouraging.
