Services Pending For Reverend Ballard, Former Lindale Mayor

Funeral services are still pending for Lindale Mayor Dr. James Ballard.  Ballard was also the Tyler Police Department's Chaplain and a minister in East Texas for many years.  One of the places Dr. Ballard ministered at was St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Tyler.  The current pastor told KLTV 7 that Ballard was his mentor, a great Bible teacher and a man who truly loved and cared about people.

"He was that kind of a person that was able to do that," said St. Paul's Methodist Church Ward Livingston.  "He gave hope and a real peace about things that people were going in the right direction with their ministry and their life."  While at St. Paul's, Reverend Ballard was a catalyst in starting St. Paul Children's Foundation.
