A pastor who was reared in Nash County retired this week after a 34-year career in the ministry.
The Rev. Tomm Lamm Sr. finished more than eight years of service Wednesday at Fellowship Baptist Church in Creedmoor, a release says.
Licensed in 1981 and ordained in 1982 at Rose of Sharon Baptist Church in Durham, he previously preached at New Light Baptist Church in Wake Forest; Charity Baptist Church, Danville, Va.; Creech Memorial Baptist and New Hope Baptist churches, both in Ahoskie; and Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, Aulander.
In addition to church work, Lamm is a member of the General Board of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina. He also has held positions on the local association and state convention levels and for the Southern Baptist Convention, the release says.
His education includes studies at Southeastern Baptist, International and Luther Rice seminaries.
Lamm was reared in Spring Hope and graduated in 1957 from Spring Hope High School, the release says. He enlisted that year in the Air Force and retired as a communications supervisor at the rank of master sergeant in 1977.
Lamm and his wife, Sandra, will live in the Lake Royale community near Bunn.
He can be reached at 919-323-9858.
