Pastor Whitehurst is a graduate of Oklahoma Baptist University and is currently a student at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, of Louisville, Kentucky.
He came to Gatlin in December of 2010 by the leadership of the Lord, with the desire to shepherd this local body to be a place where the word of God is declared, His people are equipped, and His purposes are fulfilled, all to the praise of His glory. Lord may it be, Amen!
“Thank you Father for the blessing of pastoring Gatlin these past five years. May the grace and mercy shown to me, where peace with God was made by the blood of the cross, be what I proclaim. Receive Your worship, build Your church, and spend us for Your glory among the nations!” – Pastor Jared Whitehurst
