My prayers are with the entire O'Shields family at the loss of a great patriarch of faith. As the father of my pastor - Pastor Dale O'Shields, I was blessed by Pastor Alvin's faith and life of service in the church. I remember his visit to our church for an anniversary several years ago and how he sat on a stool on the platform, chuckling at comments Terry's father was making. His gentle laugh and lift of his shoulders reminded me so much of Pastor Dale. I'm grateful for Pastor Alvin's life and rejoice that he is living in eternal glory.
Weldon Fallaw, President Emeritus, Baptist Foundation of SC left a message on October 22, 2021:
Alvin was one of the greatest Ministry servants I have ever known. He always left a place of service so much better than when he found it. We send our condolences and prayers in the days ahead. He will be missed and the Lord has gained a wonderful servant. God bless the family in the days ahead!
