BALTIMORE — Raphael Warnock may look familiar to some of you. He once served as pastor of Douglas Memorial Community Church right here in Baltimore.

Today we caught up with Pastor Beryl Whipple from Mount Hebron Baptist Church. He attended Morehouse College with Warnock and says Warnock gave him his start in the ministry.

"My years with Dr. Warnock was a great one. He was a great mentor to me. He allowed me to see some things in ministry I did not know before," he said. "He taught me the nuts and bolts of ministry. He taught me the nuts and bolts of urban ministry and speaking up for the poor and the disenfranchised."

Right now, Raphael Warnock serves as the senior pastor of the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. served as a co-pastor.
