Clayton Cotton “Promised to Serve” That is Clayton Cotton’s motto. Clayton has been praising God since his salvation, August 1994. His family was challenged by his daughter’s near death, but through God’s grace she is alive today. At that time Clayton remembered the words of his Mother “you are never so lost that God can’t hear your prayers”. Clayton prayed for God to save his soul and promised to serve Him. He joined “GloryBound” a local gospel band where he sings and testifies to God’s salvation. Clayton directs an “open mike” gathering every 3rd Friday evening each month at 6:00 PM located at Ferry Pass Baptist Church in Pensacola, Florida. “Promised to Serve” and “Living A Legacy” are two of Clayton’s recently recorded CD’s. Clayton’s desire is to serve the Lord through his music and testifying of God’s grace.
