Drivers in Gulfport will now see the name of a religious leader who has been there for decades. 34th Street in Gulfport is now named after Bishop Jonathan Tate, who has been pastor at the Anointed Temple Church for 51 years. The 80 year old pastor is honored by the city's decision to rename the street he has called home for half a century. Tate says, “Oh I’ve been through a whole lot, a lot of experience, but I was encouraged to go through with it. Whatever come against us or for us, we were sent here to work, and that’s what we came here to do, so we’ve experienced a lot of things and the Lord has blessed us real good.” Numerous religious, civic, and political leaders unveiled the renamed road in front of Tate's church this past Saturday.
