brother, Bo, was more than just a brother by blood, but they were brothers in Christ. They were the best
of friends and they had the closest bond because they were team members in their ministry together. Their
ministry began as young men and they served together for most of their lives. Even though they did
serve in separate churches in the 70's and 80's, you cannot speak of one brother without mentioning the other.
Bo pastored several churches before full time evangelism began. He was a young preacher
boy when he pastored Union Chapel in Georgetown, Gholson Baptist near Waco, Walnut Springs Baptist Church, and then he was
the pastor of Birchman Avenue Baptist Church in Fort Worth after he finished his seminary work. Bo felt the call to
full time evangelism not long after Dick sensed God's leading to do the same. Their years of evangelism as The Baker
Brothers lasted almost 20 years. In 1973, Bo was led to become the pastor of Plymouth Park Baptist Church in Irving,
TX. He once again was blessed to be a part of a great, loving church. He also spoke to the entire Dallas/Ft.Worth
metroplex everyday in his rush hour radio program On the Way with Bo Baker. He retired in 1988 and became their
Pastor Emeritus. During those following years he served as an interim pastor in Buenos Aires, Argentina and in Wiesbaden,
Germany. He continued to preach in many churches in revivals or special events, and during camp weeks at Glorieta Baptist
Encampment in New Mexico. Often over the past 18 years, he was again on the platform with Dick, a team once again.
Bo had such a gift with words and he wrote
many wonderful lyrics for several of Dick's melodys. Some of those songs are:
Deeper With God
There Are So Many Valleys
I Sing of New Life
Carry On (2006)
And many others
continued to be a strong churchman, teacher, evangelist, author, and lyricist until he went home to be with the Lord on February
18, 2010. He was 86.
