BIOGRAPHY OF PASTOR GRAHAM

Isaac B. Graham, son of James Edward and Sarah Graham, was born January 11, 1953 in Camden, SC. He is the second eldest of eight children. At an early age, Reverend Graham demonstrated a high IQ in academics in the Jackson Elementary School, and by so doing, was selected to be the first African American (Black) to break the racial lines by attending the all white Camden Elementary School.

In 1964, he, along with his family, migrated to Amityville, Long Island, where he continued his education in the Amityville J.H.S. He and his family later moved to West Babylon where he attended and graduated from West Babylon Senior High School. He then attended Long Island University at Farmingdale where he received his Associate Degree in Psychology.

In 1975, being led by the Lord into Gospel Ministry, he was licensed and ordained at the Holy Trinity Baptist Church under the leadership of Reverend Dr. Spurgeon E. Crayton. He continued his education at the American Baptist Theological Seminary and Bible College in Nashville, Tennessee where he graduated Cum Laude, receiving his Bachelor of Arts Degree and Bachelor of Theology Degree.

In June 1979, Reverend Graham was called to the pastorate at the Macedonia Baptist church, New York, NY where he has served faithfully for the past thirty two (32) years; with the burning desire to be prepared for God’s people, he did further studies at Nyack College and New York Theological Seminary where he received his certificate in pastoral Counseling.
