Emmitt Williams was installed as the seventh pastor of Springfield Baptist Church on Evanston’s west side Sunday.

The celebration of the new minister taking over at the church at 1801 Emerson St. lasted all weekend, and among other things included an appearance at the church by Evanston Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl.
