Stephen Day, Next Generation Pastor

Hello, my name is Stephen Day and I am excited to have the opportunity to be the next generation pastor here at Pinecrest Baptist Church.  I was born and raised in Chesapeake, Virginia.  I was called into the ministry when I was a youth, and have been involved ever since.  I have led worship for the past 6 years, been involved in numerous foreign trips around the world, and have led in youth ministry for the past three years.  I graduated from Liberty University in May of 2017 with a BS in Christian Ministries, and a minor in Christian Counseling.  I am currently working on a Master of Divinity from Liberty University.  My only hope and prayer for the youth at Pinecrest Baptist Church is for them to be radically transformed by the gospel, and to fall into a deeper relationship with Jesus every day.
