Dr. Don Wilton
Today marks the end of over 29 years with Dr. Wilton as senior pastor of First Baptist Spartanburg. What a privilege it has been to have such Godly leadership as he shared the Word of God unashamedly and consistently from the pulpit and through his daily living. He reminded the church that he will never stop sharing Jesus wherever he goes. He and his wife, Karyn, are grateful to the church for the years of love and friendship as pastor and wife.
Using the dedication of Jesus Christ in the temple as recorded in Luke 2, today Dr. Wilton presented five pictures that are essential for the future: a picture of the Savior, the parents, the pastor, the people and the promises of God.
He challenged the church to continue the team spirit as well as respecting the role of the pastor as God's leader. He also reminded the congregation to love the next pastor as they have loved him and to honor the next pastor as they had honored him. Then watch what God does!
Listen as Dr. Wilton shares his prayer for the church. How thankful we are to have been led by a pastor who “kept the main thing the main thing” for almost 3 decades. Well done, our good and faithful servant! May God continue to bless you as you continue to serve Him in the next season of your life.
