U.S. District Judge William H. Barbour Jr. to speak at FPC, Jackson

Men, mark your calendars!

On Thursday, October 4, 2007, Judge William H. Barbour Jr. will speak at our monthly Men of the Covenant Luncheon.

Judge Barbour received his undergraduate degree from Princeton University. He received his Juris Doctorate Degree from the University of Mississippi School of Law in 1966 and was selected to the Moot Court Board and Phi Delta Phi legal fraternity. Before his appointment as Judge, he was a partner at the law firm of Henry, Barbour and De Cell in Yazoo City, Mississippi.

In 1983, he was given his commission as a United States District Court Judge for the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi by Ronald Reagan. He was elevated to Chief Judge in 1989, served in that position through 1996, and took senior status in 2006. Judge Barbour attends the First Presbyterian Church in Yazoo City, Mississippi. Judge Barbour will challenge us to live faithful lives in our particular areas of calling.

Reservations are not required and the cost of lunch is $5.00. We will begin serving lunch 11:30 a.m. and the program will end promptly at 1:00 p.m.
