Rev. Allen Admire, DMin

At the conclusion of morning worship on 11-24 the church went into conference and voted to call Rev. Allen Admire as Interim Pastor of First Baptist. He will assume duties immediately and be in the pulpit next Sunday. Please take an opportunity to welcome Pastor Admire as you see him around the church.

 
Reverend Admire received his Bachelor of Religion from Campbell University, his Master of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, as well as his Doctor of Ministry from Trinity Theological Seminary.  He has also received certifications from the American Association of Christian Counselors,  Interim Ministry Training and Intentional Interim Ministry Training through the Center for Congressional Health at Baptist Hospital.
 

Reverend Admire will be available two days each week and will preach on Sunday mornings.  The days that he is available will be dependent upon staff meetings, programs and meetings at the church, as well as needs of the congregation - such as hospital visits, etc.  As soon as these details are worked out this information will be passed along through the web-site, bulletins, and newsletter.

A wonderful dinner was provided by all the good cooks at First Baptist with all the heavy lifting handled by the Hostess Committee members and their helpers.  If anyone went away hungry it certainly wasn't due to lack of lots of food and a plentiful supply of wonderful desserts!
