“Well done, good and Faithful Servant”

Pastor W. L. Venters Jr. was born to the late Thelma McDade and Weldon L. Venters Sr. on January 3, 1952, in Dallas, Texas (however his Momma said he was born on January 2, 1952). He was affectionately called “Weldon Jr.” or “Jr.” by his family and close friends. He made his triumphant transition to glory on January 10, 2024, with his eyes looking toward Heaven surrounded by those who loved him. Assuredly, the angels rejoiced at his arrival. Raised in Dallas, Texas, Weldon Jr. received his education from the Dallas Independent School District where he enjoyed playing sports and music. As the eldest son and brother, he always took his responsibilities seriously. He cared deeply for his younger sibling and was a protective "big - little" brother to his older sister. Although he was often mischievous, when he found himself in trouble his sisters who would warn him saying, "Boy, Momma's gonna kill you!" In his early adulthood, Weldon Jr. found himself a young father of two boys, it was during this time of his life he heard the calling of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jr. heard the voice of the LORD however he continued to run from his calling to Christ until one day he had a life - altering event. After that life - changing experience, Weldon Jr. found salvation, accepted his calling to preach the word of God, and began to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with anyone who would listen. One time, upon arriving home, he found a burglar in his home. He held the burglar down witnessing him until the police arrived. During that time, the burglar surprisingly accepted Christ as his Saviour. He eagerly sought divine knowledge and the works of the Lord Jesus Christ. Weldon Jr. regularly attended Ebenezer Baptist Church in Ennis, Texas, with his mother and sibling where his uncle the late Pastor William McDade, taught him how to be a faithful servant of the Lord. Weldon Jr had a beautiful singing voice and on Sundays, he could often be heard singing in the choir, "God Has Smiled On Me." During this period, he graduated from Southern Bible Institute and studied at several seminary schools, desiring to learn as much as he could about the works of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Reverend Venters later joined Greater Mount Zion Baptist Church located in Waxahachie, Texas. At the church he served as the Youth Pastor under the leadership of his uncle the late Pastor Ollie McDade. Reverend Venters had a passion for teaching the youth about the Lord and what was required to accept Christ to get to heaven. He loved to mentor and guide them, displaying a tough exterior at times but being loving, warm - hearted, kind, compassionate, and gentle on the inside. He also took a special interest in teaching his two little boys about the ways of the Lord. In 1985, Reverend Venters was called to serve as the pastor of Mount Zion Baptist Church in Denison, Texas. After leaving Mount Zion, he was invited to lead the Alpha and Omega Baptist Church. While in Denison, he worked tirelessly to bring people to Christ by conducting revivals throughout Texas and winning souls for the Kingdom of GOD. In 2004, Pastor W.L. Venters Jr. was called to be the shepherd at Memorial Missionary Church where he served and worked tirelessly for 19 years, retiring in December 2023. As a shepherd, he loved singing, teaching, and preaching the word of God, and was not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Winning souls for Christ was his top priority. He is survived by his two sons: Derick "Devin" Venters and Weldon "Stink" Venters III (Monique), three daughters: Braeah Venters (Terry), Carla Venters, and Aubrianna Venters (Hasaan), eight grandchildren: Weldon "Brutus" Venters IV, Kennedi Compton, Kezia Compton, Taylor Blackmon, Joziah Venters, Grace Zukowski, Bryson Brice, and Zion Forrest, and two great - grandchildren: Khalil Venters and Khali Venters. He is also survived by eight sisters: Lousie Alexander (Rupert), Barbara Washington, Patricia Kirby (Jerry), Vicki Venters - Edley, Elaine Johnson, Sheryl Cash, Felicia Venters Fuller, and Princess Lopez, two brothers: Kenneth Venters and Darren Butler, two aunts: Ms. Shirley McDade Martin and Ms. Annie Adger, a bonus daughter: Tonja Green - Pitts, and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins. Pastor Venter’s dear baby brother, Alan Larrell Venters, preceded him in death.

Uncle Jr,

I Am Free Don't grieve for me now, I'm free. I'm following the path God laid for me. I took his hand when I heard him call I turned my back and leƏt it all. I could not stay another day To laugh, to love, to work or play Tasks leƏt undone must stay that way. I found that peace at close of day. If my parting has leƏt a void, Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah yes, these things I too shall miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow; I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full; I've savored much; Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all to brief; Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. LiƏt up your hearts and share with me; God wanted me now - He set me free.

During these trying hours, the presence of friends and family has been one of our sustaining elements. Your prayers have increased our faith. Your words have encouraged our sad hearts. Your presence has given us an arm to lean on. Your food has helped us to maintain our strength, the fragrance of flowers, the thought of every card, the visits, the phone calls, and all the other expressions of love added a touch of beauty to a setting that was full of gloom. And because of you, the burden that seemed so heavy is lighter now. May the Lord shower you with Chronicles of his richest blessings and may your name be written in the Ecclesiastical pages of time that the good you shan't be forgotten. Tඁൾ Vൾඇඍൾඋඌ’ Fൺආංඅඒ
