This year is especially sad for me because this year Tony is home and they will not get to meet. Apostle never failed to inquire about Tony, not only about his health and well being but about who he is as a man. This made me appreciate him all the more, to know not only I as a member of Calvary mattered but who I love mattered as well. This I believe is what Paul meant in 1 Corinthians 12:26 and Romans 12:15. Apostle shared in my pain for Tony not being home and looked forward to the joy of when he would be home. I pray to honor him for his birthday in the same way with all my sisters and brothers in Christ. To have a heart open to ALL the joys and pains of those I am surrounded by. Thank you Apostle for continuing to teach us all to be more like Christ, as we reflect on your walk through life. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAN OF THE MOST HIGH GOD!!!

He was a true Pastor, friend, a father figure after I loss my dad, kind hearted, compassionate, never revengeful even when he had the right to be, always turned the other cheek, an encourager, a stable support, a gentle soul, sometimes a little scary. a person who never gave up but pushed through his pain and storms so it made you think twice about your situation. Not lazy but always striving to do what he could and to do his best. Always putting God and others first. Very much missed and loved. 
Posted by Kim Jones on December 1, 2020
My heart aches when I think about you not being here. I have so many wonderful memories of you. I remember when I got married in 1999, we asked you to make brief comment and do an invitation to discipleship. You said why do I have to be brief? Lol. I miss your laugh, your smile and you jokes. I will love and miss you forever.
Posted by teria broadous on May 6, 2020
Daddy you are not forgotten! As long as I have breath in my body, I will keep your memory alive. We are going through a world crisis, however I’m thankful that you taught me to trust and depend on the Lord. I know you was happy to see Uncle Arthur coming in. I love and miss you so much. There’s so much I would talk to you about if you was here. I’m going to keep pressing.

It doesn't seem like it's been 4 years since you sang I Know The Lord Will Make A Way, telling Deacon Earls he better come on up and sing it with you. Sending out the church on a run through the parking lot. I feel it life yesterday and now it makes new smile. Thank you Apostle for leaving such a treasure in my heart. Something I can hold on to when times get rough and I feel weary. You are the best first Pastor a child of God could have ever hoped for and I'm eternally grateful to God for you. Rest easy in the arms of our savior. I miss you much, Noel M. Shaw

WOW, forever missed is right. It's been three years but feels like yesterday. So much has happened since the Lord called Apostle home so much I'd like to share and discuss with him. When things go on in my life I think about our talks and I try to hear him and respond accordingly. I pray to honor him in my actions and reactions and to live by the word as he taught me. I hear him say what does the Word say about it Noel? Hearing this question and then searching the Word has kept me right. I will always miss my first spiritual teacher, pastor, father. His love for the Lord and His Word helped to change the person I was to the woman I am and I am forever grateful. Thank you Apostle.
Posted by Janet Lavender on May 3, 2019
Apostle I am constantly being reminded of the things you taught us. You will forever be in my memory. Words cannot express my appreciation and gratitude I have for you Founder, Mother, MCecillia, Arthur and all those Saints who have gone before me. Love your Daughter

We will forever be greteful to you for being our Shepherd. Truly a Mighty Servant of the Lord, we know that you are with the Master, it is well with our souls.
Posted by April Day on May 3, 2018
Dear Daddy,
Life has and will never be the same without you. Our family foundation has been shaken to its core. Individually we are existing and living our own lives but collectively we are torn. I hope one day we remember what you taught us best and that is we are family! Love one another, how can we say we God who we have not seen and we can’t love one another, our family, who we see everyday? 

When will we truly honor Daddy and more importantly honor God?

To Pastor Glo and the entire Broadous Family - Gary & I rejoice with you in knowing Apostle is now at rest in Heaven. When I joined CBC back in 1987, Apostle's message was "Come Home", now 29 years later...he heard the Lord say "Come Home", My Good and Faithful Servant... Will Done! As many have expressed, my heart is heavy because I miss my spiritual safety net. Thank you so much Apostle for teaching us God's grace is sufficient and His mercy endureth forever.... With endless Love Sis Algie.

Having been touched by the life and ministry of Apostle Broadous and befriended by Bishop Miquail Broadous; I count it a blessing and privilege to have been befriended by and labored with both and know that the fruit doesn't fall far from the tree. May God strengthen this beautiful family and provide comfort for you as you have done for so many of us; you are forever in our prayers... James & Evelyn Perkins

Pastor Glo... My friend. I love you very much. When all is calm and quite know that "God will never leave you nor forsake you." I'm just reminding you of what you already know "there is a plan" and it will manifest itself in due time. Stay focused. Love you so much Millicent
Posted by Stephen&Millicent Callaha... on May 20, 2016
Apostle I will forever miss you. Though time has passed, I will never forget all that you taught me. I learned so much under your teaching. You were my Dad (away from home) , my brother, and my friend. There are so many memories but the most important memory is how you taught me to have a relationship with God. A lesson that was the foundation as to who I am today in the body of Christ. It was your assignment from God to teach me. An assignment that you carried out perfectly and I thank you for it. Thank you for your wisdom, your love, and your laughter.

My Pastor,my counselor,and friend. Thank you for helping me through my most difficult times in life. I will miss you Apostle Bill. Rest In Heaven.

A Pastor's Heart. Your lasting legacy for me will always be that you are the personification of a "pastor's heart." Countless times you were there for me and my family -- the birth of a child, the divine healing of that same child, my uncle's homegoing, my aunt's homegoing, my son's mother-in-law being memorialized at Calvary. You were a wonderful friend to my husband, a trusted advisor and encourager for me, You attended celebrations in our home, you trusted the pulpit to both me and my husband, and on and on and on. As others have testified, you were there for them and their families too. You never grew tired of tending to your flock. You could always be counted on for spirit-filled words of wisdom when they were needed most. When our family was no longer at Calvary, you always kept the door open for us. And somehow I always expected you to be there. How lovely it is to have had you as Pastor in my lifetime and been on this earth when you were here. You will always be Pastor in my heart, here on earth, but apparently God needs you now. I will miss you forever. I see you smiling. Love always, Phyllis Tucker

I praise God for Apostle Bill...my uncle, my pastor, my mentor and encourager. I always viewed him as such an amazing man. He always came to see about our little family.  He was there for me so often. I can't imagine having grown up without his love and support. He baptized me. He presented me as a debutante, came to see about me when I was in college. He applauded my successes and counseled me through my setbacks. He set me on a straight and always maintained integrity. Years ago, we talked about my wedding day and I told him I wanted him to perform the ceremony, Uncle Arthur to sing a song, and my Dad would walk me down the aisle. I praise God for honoring me with this privilege. Eternal gratitude for the presence of Apostle William T. Broadous in my life.
Posted by Lillian Hogains Broadous on May 18, 2016
I learned at a very early age what the word friend meant... For me it was "Bill." When my marriage broke up, and I was in a boarding house, Bill was there everyday proving to be a friend... We talked, laughed, and when we were finished he would drive us over to Bob's Big Boy in San Fernando, and we would order hamburgers. After we ate, he would take me back to the boardinghouse and we sat in the car for hours conversing about anything and everything. I know now he knew I needed someone, and it was him. Bill was my friend and confidante, and I loved him very much. Forever in my heart, your sister-in-love, Lillian Hogains Broadous.

A servant and Soldier in the Army of the Lord. My father-in-law (Kenneth) Apostle William T. Broadous impressed a legacy of righteous living from his persuasion of his eternal righteousness in Christ. He epitomized the caliber of a faithful Overseer, Shepherd given by God, endearing husband and sacrificial father. He never compromised, he never wavered in his faith and representation of Christ, he never let up, he never gave up, he endured his appointed race. I will miss you sir and am forever grateful for instilling family, faith, and fortitude in this servant. You have fought a good fight sir and your earthly absence reverberates our inheritance of the promise of our Lord. We love you dearly and will rejoice with you again in that great getting up morning.

Apostles Broadous I heard this name at Sunday family dinners "a lot" church, church, church, Calvary this, Apostles that, I didn't think anything of it, but once I meant the Apostles he was really a good man and a godly man, he made me feel at home, like I was a member. I listen to his message and really start to believe that God is good and if I trust God things would work out. I'm going to miss him putting me on blast when I did come to church. Much respect Mr. King

P.S. Thank you for looking after my wife while I was out of town working

Always remembering my Pastor, my Spiritual Father. I will always cherish the memories of spiritual guidance and the uplifting messages each Sunday. Love you, Miss you, Love you much.

What had me paying attention "LOL"

Shared by Marquis Morris on May 7, 2021
I loved watching reverend bill preach the gospel when I was a kid because he had those big ol brown eyes that made me chuckle in the audience because as a child he looked like a man making goofy faces yelling about how good and holy God is but when I got into high school i became mature enough not to have a goofy outlook of reverend bill,I will miss him always!!!

My Encounter with Apostle

Shared by Vanessa PILOT on May 14, 2016

It was March 1996 at TrueWay BC of Los Angeles, Apostle was there in a three day revival. On the last day of the revival he did an altar call so that he could lay hands of us.  Well I had seen this on TV, but never had  experienced it for myself. I had no knowledge of this man of God, but I knew he was anointed by God, so I decided to go to the altar to see what this was all about.  When he laid hands on me, I wept like a baby(it seem like hours) as his team consoled me.
2 Corinthians 5:17NLT (This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life begun!) 
I was fire baptisted under the leadership of Apostle WT Broadous as a member of TWBC. 

A few years later, some things had occurred in the BOC and the Lord put in my heart to find the man of God that had laid hands on me years earlier.  I didn't know what church he was from, nor where the church was located, as a matter of fact I didn't remember his name...so I started asking around and God directed my path to Pacoima.  This is where it gets interesting...I came to Calvary to get directions for this problem as it relates to someone else ...little did I know I was going to be dealt with...during one of the the "After Care" services, when I told him my situation...he looked me directly in my face over his glasses and said "first you need to get yourself together", he laid hands of me and this time I went out under the anointing of the Holy Spirit.  Once I came to, I got up and walk swiftly out of the church and told my then boyfriend (Reche), "you gotta move out, this man just told me all about myself."  I did not step foot back in Calvary until I came correct, which was two years later, I came back a married women.  Now the rest is history!

He knew me first

Shared by Noel Shaw on May 13, 2016

When I first visited Calvary I discovered not all preachers sounded like the adults in the Charlie Brown cartoons, I understood what the preacher was saying about God's Word. Then one Sunday he prayed Psalm 27:14 and that is when I began to fall in love with the Word of God, so I responded to the call and joined the body of Christ and became a member of Calvary Missionary Baptist Church of Pacoima. I began attending service and Wednesday Night Corporate Prayer, even Sunday School, you would think I would have known the pastors name but I was never introduced and his name not mentioned I did not. So can you imagine my surprise when one Wednesday night after corporate prayer I hear my name being sung loudly by this strong booming voice, lol. I never really cared for that much, but to turn and see the man I had been listening to (with understanding) preach the Word for about a month was the one singing, now that made me smile.

This was my first personal contact with MY pastor, I was completely caught off guard because to this day I have no idea how he knew my name since we had never been introduced and I never said anything in his class. Yet, it was that night I KNEW I was in the place God wanted for me. I had made the correct choice.

Calvary is my home and as I remember this night I rejoice because Apostle William T. Braodous knew me before I knew him and through him I learned of my Heavenly Father who also knew me before I knew Him.
