A Message from the Pastor......

I was born on June 27, 1964 in Lafayette, Louisiana as the ninth child of Laura Bell Shillow (Joseph) and Fred Shillow, Sr. (both deceased).  I am the proud valedictorian of the Class of 1982 of W.O. Boston High School in Lake Charles, Louisiana.  Although our beloved school has since closed my PANTHER PRIDE lives on.  I attended Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on an Engineering Scholarship and eventually moved back to my hometown to attend McNeese State University in the summer of 1985.  

In February 1988, I relocated to Greensboro, North Carolina after being offered an opportunity to manage a fine dining establishment under the ownership of Berzha Consultants.  It was there in April 1988 that I met the lady that was to become my wife, Laurie Landis.  We were married in Jonesboro, Georgia on November 16, 1991 by Pastor Fred Shillow, Jr. and have been dating ever since.  We are blessed to be the parents of Victoria Isabella Shillow and Alex Michael Shillow, Sr., as well as the proud grandparents of Layla, Landon, Andrae and Alex, Jr.

I have worked in the Call Center Industry since May 1989.  Through the providential blessings of God, my employment has led to multiple relocations, travel opportunities to over 35 states and 5 countries, incredible life adventures and life-long friends around the globe.  I have been active in various civic and community support clubs including:

  • Rotary Club of Ponca City, Oklahoma
  • Ponca City Leadership 2000 Graduate
  • Marion County Economic Development – Hamilton, Alabama
  • Texas Workforce Board – Jefferson County, Texas
  • 100 Black Men of Greater Beaumont

I was an honors graduate in May 2011 in Grace School of Theology's inaugural graduation class (www.GSOT.org) and also currently serve as a member of their Board of Advisors.  I have been employed with Sitel Corporation since September 2001 and have been privileged to serve the company in several capacities, i.e. Site Director, Regional Vice President of Operations, Vice President of Recruiting for North America and am currently the Vice President of Account Management with Sitel focused specifically on the Best Buy account.

My vision for our local body is to strengthen our church’s ability to make a greater impact in the ministry of Jesus Christ.  More specifically, I am counting on the Holy Spirit's guidance, presence and power to achieve the following:

  • Stronger individual and family relationships with Jesus Christ
  • Stronger outreach ministries, i.e. Evangelism, Benevolence, Marriage and Community Support
  • Well defined administrative practices and capabilities to support Jesus’ philosophy of giving
  • 100% high school graduation rates with 100% of students moving on to institutions of higher learning, i.e. two and four year colleges, trade schools or entrepreneurship
  • Satellite campus for an accredited seminary to provide laymen and clergy in Kountze and the surrounding communities the opportunity to grow in their knowledge of the Word of God
  • Maximize technology to evangelize the sinner, equip the saved, edify and encourage the saint through the POWER of the HOLY SPIRIT to the GLORY of our GREAT GOD!  

I have reached a point in my walk with Christ that I am absolutely certain that with God "Nothing shall be impossible!"  Therefore, the kingdom impact of the Greater Mt. Corinth Missionary Baptist Church to the Kountze and surrounding area should be obvious as the Holy Spirit provides direction and supernatural power.  I am truly thankful that God has chosen me to be used for His Divine Glory at such a time as this.  TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
