After 40 years of pastoring six churches in Oklahoma, Illinois, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee, it was "the next right thing" to start a "simple" church that emphasizes Biblical priorities and minimizes structure and process. Sam is a graduate of University of Tennessee with an architecture degree, and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with Master of Divinity, Master of Religious Education and Doctor of Ministry degrees.
Sam is a widower since 2017 after a 41 year marriage. He is the father of three daughters and nine grandchildren. Sam has been a life long runner at every distance, including Boston Marathon, and an Ironman competitor for over a decade including World Championships in all the long course events. He enjoys golf, music and all things athletic.
Gordon is an accomplished singer, instrumentalist, songwriter and worship leader. Gordon’s desire is to see every believer encounter the Lord in a tangible way and then respond to His leading. Gordon believes that music reaches past the cold intellect of our minds and pierces the deepest reaches of our hearts and souls. It’s a powerful tool that God uses to glorify Himself and encourage believers.
Gordon is a graduate of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and has served as the lead worship pastor in churches throughout the southeastern U.S. for 25 years. He has been married to his best friend, Christi, for 22 years and they have a beautiful 9 year old daughter.
The Word of God tells us that victory is won through many advisers (Prov 11:14). The New Life Fellowship advisory board was created to follow this principle.
Pastor Sam's blog is a channel to enrich your spiritual walk with the Lord, and to encourage you to live your life to the fullest. We invite you to visit the blog and be blessed.
