Boys & Girls Clubs to open e-learning sites in South Bend for help with school work

SOUTH BEND — The kids at the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Joseph County on Wednesday afternoon already were well aware of the safety protocols they will be asked to live with for the next several months.


Some were outside learning about bicycling, others were inside on computers or trying out some of the fitness devices that were installed several months ago at the O.C. Carmichael Youth Center at 502 E. Sample St. Read more…

Our Pastor

Reverend Rickardo Taylor, Sr. is the fifth pastor of Mount Carmel Missionary Baptist Church of South Bend, Indiana. He accepted the call from God to enter into the gospel ministry at the age of 28, under the guidance and leadership of his father, the late Reverend Dorsey Taylor, and loving support of his mother, Geraldine Taylor. Being a second generation minister, Reverend Taylor continued to walk in his fathers footsteps, and was called to pastor Mount Carmel MBC in 1998; twenty-five years after his father had led the congregation.

Reverend Taylor has grown to become a spirit filled man of God, gifted by the Holy Spirit in the areas of teaching and professing the divine word of God, with a burning desire to bring men back to their ordained position of leadership in the church and in their homes. Reverend Rickardo Taylor, Sr. was born on July 1, 1963 in Michigan City, Indiana and is the fourth son of six boys. He grew up and attended grade and high school in Michigan City, but chose Grambling State University, a historically black school, for his college education. In his mission to have a comprehensive understanding of the word of God, Reverend Taylor earned his Bachelors degree in Theology from Bethel College of South Bend.

As a crier for Christ, inspirational speaker, community leader, lover of Gods people, devoted husband and father, and dedicated pastor, Reverend Taylor demonstrates a tireless and relentless effort to the Mount Carmel family and the South Bend community. During his 22-year tenure at Mount Carmel, Pastor Taylor has provided the leadership and guidance for many seeds to be sown and the vision for many previous prayers to manifest into blessings. These bountiful blessings are evident in the tremendous growth of Mount Carmel, both in spirit and in numbers. Over the years the blessings and Gods favor have brought about various Youth Ministries, Drama Ministry, Mens Ministry, Health &Wellness Ministry and a host of other ministries with the sole purpose of reaching and teaching others about Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

As a productive member of the South Bend Community, Reverend Rickardo Taylor, Sr. was a teacher for the South Bend Community School Corporation where he and his Building Trade students, built 7 family homes that were purchased by members of the community. Reverend Taylor serves as a Chaplin of the 100 Black Men and he serves on the Board of Trustee at Bethel College.


Reverend Taylor is also a very devoted and compassionate husband, to wife Marcia, and the loving and proud father of three children; Rickardo Jr., Aundrea, and Marlon. Reverend Rickardo Taylor, Sr. is committed to serving God and the needs of the congregation that he has been appointed to lead. It is through his use of universal principles regarding spirituality that he shares practical tools for all of Gods children to lead joyous, abundant, peaceful, and truly blessed lives.
