By 1891 he was ordained elder and was riding circuit around Magnolia, Arkansas. Dur- ing this period he made another great friendship — with Harvey C. Couch. The Couch youth fre- quently drove into town to bring the young minister to church on Sundays.

«SMS ed the meridian of life: " President Sexton is fairly representative of the faculty, the trustees and of the student body. His ex- perience has been broad; his faith is pro- found; his will resolute. Nearly all men are at times inspired to noble thoughts and courageous deeds. Few men are al- ways upright and unwavering in the per- formance of duty. Dr. Sexton, through all his days, has been a faithful follower of the greatest Teacher the world has ever known. President Sexton ' s dream and hope are to see Centenary College strengthened for service to civilization and to Christianity. That, indeed, is the dream and hope of thousands who owe in large part their happiness and success to the inspiration received at Centenary. May this dream and hope be realized.

In 1892 he went to St. Jo, Texas and to Henrietta, Gainsville and Piano in the years immediately following.

Completion of his service at Terrell found Doctor Sexton becoming presiding Elder of the Gainsville District. His next charge was at Galveston, Texas. In 1905 came the event in Doctor Sexton ' s life which first set him down as a great builder of physical edi- fices as well as of human character. Bishop Hoss called him to go to Houston and there erect a church for the South Houston section. That was Doctor Sexton ' s first great building mission, but in after years friends came to say that wherever he went he either built a church or paid off the debt on one.
