In the year 1981, God placed a vision on the heart of the late Reverend Robert A. Samuels to organize a Baptist church in southern Prince Georges County. On March 21, 1981, Reverend Samuels met with a faithful few, including Carolyn Samuels, Lillie Brown, Iceline Burwell, Lenora Dabney, Edward Evans, Sister Larkin, and Walter Webb to start the Mt. Ennon Baptist Church. It is said that in naming the church, Reverend Samuels reflected back on an Indian trail in Xenia, Ohio outside his hometown of Chillicothe. The name Enon (also spelled Aenon or Ennon) is also found in scripture, in John 3:23, where it records that John the Baptist baptized at Aenon near Salim because water was abundant there, and people kept coming and were being baptized. God nurtured the seed he had planted in Reverend Samuels heart, and the first official service was held on Palm Sunday, April 12, 1981 in the multipurpose room of the Melwood Elementary School in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.Throughout their first years of work, they produced magnificent fruit for God establishing a Sunday school, ordaining and licensing Wilbert Williams as a minister, ordaining Theodore H. Grier as their first deacon, and installing disciples as officers of the church. One of the disciples, Charles Byrd, located three acres of land on Old Marlboro Pike in Upper Marlboro and suggested that the location would be a great site to build an edifice to worship God. Based on that suggestion, the disciples pooled their resources and purchased the land in October 1981. When Prince Georges County raised the rent and developed other requirements for continued use of Melwood Elementary School, the disciples prayed and canvassed the area for a new meeting place. God heard their prayers. Mt. Ennon Baptist Church worshipped at Christian Academy Elementary School until 1984.With Gods guidance, in April 1984, Pastor Samuels called a church meeting and informed the congregation of the availability of the Independent Baptist Church building at 9832 Piscataway Road in Clinton, Maryland. The congregation voted to purchase the property, and Brother Barron Bass secured financing to purchase the church. On June 2, dedication services for the new site were held. Pastor Samuels and the faithful members sacrificed to endure some of the financial challenges of purchasing and maintaining the site on Piscataway Road. Pastor Samuels and two other disciples mortgaged their homes to purchase the site. Other disciples paid the utility bills or paid portions of the church mortgage. Pastor Samuels and the membership continued to persevere in this work amidst difficult congregational challenges until the end of Reverend Samuels service in January 1989.1990 - 2002The Mt. Ennon Church family weathered this time of transition by holding steadfast to their faith in God. Deacon James Knight, Chair of the Deacons, provided leadership for the church until God answered the prayers of the membership on December 19, 1989 when Reverend James H. Neal answered the call to serve as the churchs next pastor. Led by the Holy Spirit, Reverend Neal led the flock to higher heights in ministry. A humble servant of God with a heart for the people, Reverend Neal organized the existing auxiliaries into departments and established many new ministries to encourage the growth of the disciples of Mt. Ennon and better serve the needs of the community. Under his leadership the church membership grew from 300 to more than 2000. God led him to declare the year 1993 the year of sacrifice. During the year, with an increased focus on tithing, the church retired its $500,000 mortgage, purchased a church van for community outreach, and made the church accessible for physically disabled worshippers. Under Pastor Neals leadership, many new ministries were introduced, the warm nights program for the homeless, new members orientation class, aerobics class, a prison ministry, a tutorial program, and retreats for our youth, singles, women, men and married cou
