Reverend Sheldon Green was called to serve as the senior pastor at Fellowship Baptist Church in Hudson, NC on Sunday, October 11, 2015. Sheldon grew up in the area, graduating from Hudson High School in 1975 and from UNC Charlotte in 1979. He also earned a Masters of Divinity Degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC, on May 12, 2017.
He has been active in church ministry for decades as a Bible teacher, small group coach, supply preacher, and other key areas of Christian service. He enjoyed a successful career as a national marketing manager for BellSouth (now AT&T) and Cox Communications in Atlanta before he was called into pastoral ministry. It is interesting that he is a charter member of Fellowship Baptist Church, and now God has brought him back full circle to serve as the senior pastor.
His experience as a business leader, a lay leader, and his education at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary have prepared him well for this next step in God’s plan for his life. He is well equipped to shepherd Fellowship Baptist Church.
He and his wife, Julie have two grown children. They have a son Chase, who is a chef in Atlanta, GA, and a daughter Shelby, who is an associate manager for Paper Source in Charlotte, NC.
