Rev. Albert Kennington
A native and life-long resident of Alabama, Rev. Kennington retired from parish ministry in Mobile in 2007. After eight years of part-time and "Sunday-supply" ministry, he accepted the invitation of Immanuel's Vestry and the Bishop's appointment to a new ministry in Bay Minette. He and his wife, Nancy, live in Fairhope. They have three adult children and three grandchildren.
The church is almost as old as Bay Minette itself, being established in 1908, a few years after the Baldwin County town's founding. The original chapel was constructed in 1914 and stood until 1968, when it was destroyed by a tornado. Over the next four years, church services were held at the parish house.
In 1972, a new chapel was built and dedicated and serves as our place of worship to this day.
