On Sunday, October 11, 2015 the congregation at Fellowship Baptist Church in Hudson called Sheldon Green to come and serve as their Senior Pastor. Sheldon and his wife Julie have two grown children, their son Chase who lives in the Atlanta area and their daughter Shelby who lives in Charlotte. Sheldon grew up in the area, graduating from Hudson High School in 1975 and at UNC Charlotte in 1979. He is currently pursuing a Masters of Divinity Degree at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest.
Sheldon enjoyed a successful career as a national market manager for BellSouth (now AT&T) and Cox Communications in Atlanta before he was called into pastoral ministry. It is interesting that Sheldon is a charter member of Fellowship Baptist Church and God has now brought him full circle to lead the local congregation in the current phase of God’s plan.
The skills Sheldon developed as a public speaker in the corporate world combine with his spiritual gifts for teaching and shepherding and through the power of the Holy Spirit allow him to lead the congregation well. He is directing the church to reach out to the community in love and to grow in their relationships with Jesus Christ.
