“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” II Timothy 4: 7-8

Floyd Anderson was born in Simmesport, Louisiana on February 24, 1946, to the late Mr. Frank Anderson, Sr., and Mrs. Iner Lee Anderson. He was the ninth child out of ten children. Floyd grew up in a Christian household. He was baptized at an early age by the Reverend Stanley at New Bethel Baptist Church in Simmesport, Louisiana.
