THE BRONX - A Bronx pastor was honored Saturday for his 67 years of service to the community.

Rev. Dr. Henry Bolden is the longtime pastor of Great Eternal Baptist Church at 746 Elton Ave. The 82-year-old has been preaching since he was just 19 years old.

"Preaching and mingling with the people keeps me alive," Bolden told News 12.

Bolden says he has no plans to retire.
