About Me

I am the Senior Pastor here at Warlicks Baptist Church. My wife, Sharon, and I have been married since August 3, 1974.  We have two children: Carrie Gilliam married to Cameron Gilliam and Andrew Murry married to Laura.


My Story

I grew up in a Christian home, but did not accept God’s gift of salvation until I was twenty-eight. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God, who paid the price for all sin including mine, when He was crucified. I believe that He rose from the dead and will live for eternity. I gladly proclaim my faith in Him, and my love and allegiance to Him. I owe all my hope, all that I am, and all that I have now and in eternity to Him.


The Important Stuff

First Job

cleaning the local schools during the summer.  We would dust, mop and buff the floors


Favorite Hickory (because it's closet) Restaurant

O’Charlies - Best bourbon salmon in town. A close second is Charlie Grangers - the brisket hot dog is really good


Dream Trip

Israel. I would love to see where Jesus walked.  A close 2nd Dodger Stadium - I would like to experience that atmosphere once


Favorite Movie Quote

“You can fool some of the people some of the time and some of the people most of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.” - "Maverick".  I like to add “and you can’t fool God any of the time.”


Super Power

I have no superpower, I am lucky to walk and chew gum at the same time

About Me

I am the Family and Kids Pastor here at Warlicks Baptist Church. My wife, Dorothea, and our 2 girls, Alina and Michaila, moved from just up the road in Morganton, NC to join the team in October of 2005.


My Story

My ministry started at Grace Baptist Church in Portland, ME. as a volunteer working with the Children’s Ministry. In 1989 God called me into the Ministry and moved us South. I graduated from Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. with a Bachelor of Science in Theology with my concentration in Youth Ministry. I have worked with Youth and Children ever since and it is a ministry I truly love. We have a growing youth ministry and the teenagers are excited about what God is doing in their lives.
