On Sunday, September 22, 2013, Dalton Cates came forward during the invitation time and grabbed my hand. He simply said, “I want to follow Jesus.”
After a brief discussion with his parents, Gena and Eddie, we gave Dalton the opportunity to follow Jesus into His death burial and resurrection to new life.

Dalton is a very special person to Glen Alice Christian Church and the Rockwood, TN community. He has lived his entire life with Down Syndrome. Dalton leads the congregation in prayer, handling the offering and is best known for his sincere prayers for Jesus to show Himself and call his name.
