‘A remarkable man’ – Kemp serves 64 years in ministry
Retired Methodist minister William V. Kemp has spent his life serving the needs of others through the Methodist ministry.
He’s at home now, in Holly Springs, after traveling over the state preaching the Gospel and ministering to others. He was born in Corinth in March 1926.
A graduate of Corinth High School, Kemp entered the ministry in 1952.
He married a childhood sweetheart at age 17 (she was 16) and worked while taking courses at Northeast Mississippi Community College, then two years at Blue Mountain College, and on to Emory University in Atlanta, Ga., where he studied in the Chandler School of Theology.
