O. M. Ledford

O. M. Ledford

At age 17, O. M. Ledford started his first business making and selling pies to stores and restaurants in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Over the next 73 years, O. M. owned and operated three thriving businesses. He always considered the Lord his senior partner and attributed his success to faithful stewardship and treating his customers right.

His stewardship was enhanced by enlisting the help of the Georgia Cumberland Conference Planned Giving & Trust Services department in planning his estate. Shortly before he passed away in 2011, O. M. stated, "Our Conference leaders are honest and they have good accountability with the General Conference Auditing Service. This way some funds will go to my family, and then all the rest goes back into the Lord's work. We only manage things for God, we own nothing.
