INCORPORATION

It was moved, seconded and carried that we would use the name Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church and that Rev. Mack Smith would be the pastor. In October 1956, we purchased the building at 920 Los Robles Blvd., Del Paso Heights, California, which is still our present location. The church incorporated on August 1, 1959. In May 1960 Rev. Henderson White was called to be the pastor to Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church. In 1966, plans were being made for a new edifice. We purchased a chapel from McClellan Air Force Base in view of moving it to 920 Los Robles Blvd.
