introducing FBCs new senior pastor - Rev. Alan P. Sherouse
Following morning Worship on Sunday, July 28, a Called Church Conference was held to affirm Rev. Alan P. Sherouse as the new Senior Pastor at First Baptist Church Greensboro. We are excited for Alan and his beautiful family to join us here at FBC. They are coming to us from Metro Baptist Church in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, where Alan has been Pastor since 2009. Please pray for Metro Baptist Church as they say good-bye to the Sherouse family and as they begin the process of transition. Alan will join us for his first time in the pulpit on September 22.
Thank you for your many prayers during the interim period and for continued prayers as we welcome the Sherouse family to First Baptist Greensboro. This begins a new day for our church. Amen.
A introductory brochure was distributed during the Welcome Weekend by the Pastor Search Committee. This brochure will tell you of their journey as a committee that was completely led by God's Spirit and the many prayers they felt from our congregation. Alan has also shared his background and calling into the ministry and says, "the vocation of pastor enables him to engage the world with the passions of his life: love of people, artful preaching and worship, intellectual rigor, and social engagement." You can also read about Alan's ministry in New York's Metro Baptist Church, his family, comments from various pastors, professors, colleagues, and friends about Alan and his ministry, and his thoughts on ministering at First Baptist Church. There are links available to view the introductory brochure in two formats - an online viewer or a pdf file. Both will allow you to download and print or you may pick up a copy at the church.
