A time to Plant
Reverend McIntyre had taken on several jobs before earning a position at the City of Miami Beach for
30+ years. During a portion of those years, he was promoted to a Supervisory position. He was a
steadfast dedicated worker who worked untiringly. But above all his accomplishments he more
importantly served in Ministry. He and his family began their spiritual journey in 1957 under the
leadership of Rev. Melvin Turner and served under several other Pastors; Rev. Thomas, Rev. Rash
Smith; Rev. James Everson; Rev. L.J. Smith; and Rev. W. Kelly. After serving many years as a Deacon
he was elevated to Chairman Deacon and later accepted the call under the unction of the Lord and the
spiritual guidance of Rev. Y. Anglin. In May 1980, he was ordained and installed as Pastor of the Union
Grove Missionary Baptist Church (MBC) in Miami Florida. In 1987, he was elected as Moderator of the
Great Union Baptist Association where he served for 15 years. He was also a part of the Fellowship of
Churches. He has ordained and licensed numerous Clergy such as Deacons, Ministers and Evangelist.
Rev. McIntyre left such a legacy as he mentored and counseled a diverse group of people in a variety
of life circumstance. He was well verse and looked upon in the local community and abroad with high
regard and his word and deeds were notable by many as a source of inspiration through God. He was
a kind and compassionate man who was an avid lover of old westerns movies. He was a praying man
who loved God wholeheartedly and encouraged many others to do likewise through many of his rich
sermons preached. He exemplified the attributes of a humble man who was full of integrity and much
grace. His family declares the worlds lost; but heaven has gained a precious diamond to shine. He will
be infinitely remembered by his family, brothers and sisters in Christ who loved him dearly. What more
can we say about this great man who exemplified the attributes of God first and who was a loving
husband, respected father, and laborer man after 33 years of pastoring. He finally retired to take care
of his wife due to her failing health and was later honored by New Union Grove MBC as Pastor Emeritus.
His successor was the Rev. Michael Menzies.
