MEET OUR PASTOR:
Pastor Todd Crum is not new to the community. He grew up right here in Greensboro, NC. Todd graduated from Andersonville Theological Seminary in 2005. Todd was saved at the age of 19, He had gone to church his whole life but did not know Jesus as his personal savior. He knew he was living wrong and that God was pursuing him. One day God spoke to his heart in a mighty way and right there at his bedside at the age of 19 he ask Jesus to save him. He was called to preach shortly after. God has been using him since then to reach people with the gospel. He became our Pastor in 2013 and has a passion to see God's word work in the lives of people. Todd married his beautiful wife Kristen on August 1, 2008. She is a great help mate in his ministry. Kristen is attending Liberty University for her Bachelors degree in Business Management in Health Care. We are blessed to have Pastor Todd and wife Kristen here at Stevens Memorial Baptist Church.
In the summer of 1922, Rev. Charles E. Stevens, then Pastor of Sixteenth Street Baptist Church, began cottage meetings in the village. Such interest was shown that the organization of another Baptist church would soon become a reality. In that year, Stevens Memorial Baptist Church was organized with thirteen charter members. Rev. W.H. Wilson was called as the first pastor. The first meeting was held in a small house in the village. There Rev. Stevens initiated revival meetings that resulted in numerous conversions and additions to the church.
A larger meeting place was soon required. So, in 1923, a lot out on Church Street Extension was bought and a new building for worship was begun. In September of that year a sanctuary and two classrooms were completed. As the Lord blessed and growth continued, property in the next block out Church Street Extension was purchased in 1954. Shortly thereafter, ground was broken for the construction of the building we now enjoy. It consist of a sanctuary and a thirty-two class room educational facility. The first service was held on Sunday morning, August, 1955 with a overflowing congregation.
Stevens Memorial Baptist Church embodies a group of saved Bible believers seeking to know Christ more fully and to make Him known to others. We are dedicated to a ministry that is rooted in Christ and express love for Him and for one another. We praise God for His truth and trust in His continued blessings for the days to come.
