Bryce Lewayne Lipscomb was born in Sheffield, Alabama on April 4th, 1964, to Clarence Edward and Margaret Louise Lipscomb. He was the oldest of five children and always bragged about being the oldest and best looking grandchild.
Bryce accepted Christ at Mt. Zion M.B. Church at an early age under the leadership of Pastor Jessie Little. Bryce served at Mt. Zion in many capacities which included, a choir member, the Superintendent of Sunday School, a deacon, an associate minister, and a youth pastor. He was the Pastor of Providence Missionary Baptist Church of Falkville, Alabama for five years. He was later called to Pastor First Missionary Baptist Church of his hometown, Town Creek, Alabama, in 2006
where he served faithfully for fifteen years until the Lord called him home. Under his leadership the Lord added to the Church, it grew spiritually and financially. The Lord gave Pastor Lipscomb a vision to build a Life Center and remodel the sanctuary which was dedicated to the Lord in 2010.
He graduated from Hazlewood High School in 1982. He served for two years at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. He became a licensed minister in 1999 and an ordained minister in 2002, both under the leadership of Pastor Jessie Little. In 2011, he received a certificate of Bible Study from Huntsville Bible College, an Associate of Arts Degree in Pastoral Ministry in 2013, a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Pastoral Ministry in 2016 and a Master of Ministry in Pastoral Studies in 2018.
Bryce joined the US Army as a young man at the age of 18. After an honorable discharge from the US Army, he was employed by the 3M Company and later transitioned to International Papers. While working at 3M and International Papers, he was well known. He was always willing to give a smile, a laugh, and some friendly advice, both solicited and unsolicited, with those famous words “it will work itself out.” After retiring, he served full-time in the ministry.
Bryce will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. He will be remembered as an always stylish, joyous man of God who never seemed to age. He loved to cook, eat, and spend time with his grandchildren. He would always be ready with a scripture for your soul and a joke to make you laugh.
He was preceded in death by his father Clarence Lipscomb.
