State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) presented an Ohio House commendation to Reverend Dr. Larry L. Macon, Sr. honoring his thirty-five years of Pastoral Ministry.
Dr. Larry L. Macon, Sr. is the anointed Senior Pastor of the Mt. Zion Church of Oakwood Village, a suburb of Cleveland, where he has served since 1980.  Dr. Macon is an accomplished author, educator, teacher, and preacher.  He has published seven major and important writings. Dr. Macon distinguished himself by building a New Worship Center and Fine Arts Center complex on 16 acres in Oakwood Village.  He is a graduate from Ashland Theological Seminary with a Doctorate specializing in African American Religious Studies.
One of his recent accomplishments includes hosting the Fugitive Safe Surrender Program held at the church with over 7,431 felons turning themselves in and 1,200 warrants being lifted in 4 days (2010).   He was then consecrated as the Presiding Bishop of the Ecumenical Alliance of Ohio (2010).  For the past five years he has held the largest faith-based gathering in the region, known as Praisefest.
“Rev. Dr. Larry Macon, Sr. has blessed not only the Mt. Zion community with his words of wisdom, but through his continuous leadership, he has influenced many other people and organizations throughout the entire region,” Rep. Anielski said.  “Congratulations to Rev. Dr. Larry Macon, Sr. and the entire Mt. Zion community.”
