Harry Sephus and Charity Elizabeth Beard were married on Oct 29, 1961, at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church in Peoria, Illinois with Rev. Lewis Nance presiding.
The couple has six children: Charity L. Lamb of Peoria, Gregory Eugene Sephus of California, Eldred Sephus of Indiana, Rebekkah Harris of Georgia, Ericka Lang of North Carolina, and Elliott Sephus of Georgia. They have been blessed with eleven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.
Harry retired in 2000 from Pacific Bell after 30 years of service. He has been continuously active in ministry after retiring by serving humanity wherever needed. Charity, an ordained minister is a longtime writer at the Traveler. Her monthly column is titled “Living by Faith.” The two have ministered extensively wherever doors were open across the country as led by God. The last place of ministry was at Peoples United Methodist Church in Colorado Springs.
“Christianity is our life: as we endeavor to do good things with fidelity to duty, allowing nothing to take the place of simply doing God’s will. Onward we march in the light of God, by Grace, and pleasant gratitude,” says Rev. Charity E. Sephus.
The couple currently resides in Evans, Georgia.
