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.

Crystal Nelson, Worship Leader
Hello, my name is Crystal Nelson and I’m excited to have the opportunity and privilege to lead praise and worship here at Pinecrest Baptist Church.  I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior when I was 8 years old.  I was born, raised and now reside in Portsmouth, Va. I had the privilege of being raised in a Christian home, and will forever be grateful for the godly foundation that was given to me. Through out the course of my life, I have been given many opportunity’s to serve in various ministries and have served along side of many dedicated people. I have been apart of the Pinecrest family for many years and have served as a worship team member at various times.  I stand in awe that just as Jesus used a little boys lunch, in the Bible to feed the multitudes that He would choose also to use my lunch. I graduated from Christopher Newport University with a Bachelors of Business Administration with a concentration in management and a minor in Psychology (2001).  My life verse is “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
(‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:9‬) My mission and vision in life is to love God and love people and to know God and make Him known.  I have been married to my wonderful husband Phil since 1999 and we have one precious daughter, Haley.  I enjoy of course music, softball, auto racing, a variety of sports, and spending time with my family and friends.  I pray that all who enters Pinecrest Baptist will hear Gods voice the loudest, walk out having experienced being in Our Saviors presence and know of His unfailing love!
