Crawford of DeLand, FL. Dr. Sams and Elder Crawford enlisted the support and cooperation of leading pastors and moderators of Florida, Alabama, and North Carolina.
Today, the largest concentration of Primitive Baptists who are members of the National Primitive Baptist Convention, USA, is located in the State of Florida, followed by the states of Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, and North Carolina/Virginia.
