PASTOR SAM SUMNER

ssumner@pathwaychurchnc,com

 
As a slave to Jesus it is Sam’s desire to see Him proclaimed. He believes that the Church’s mandate is to “make disciples” of Jesus and that the end result of the Gospel’s work in someone’s life is complete redemption and transformation.
 
Sam first came to Pathway Church (then called Beulaville PFWB Church) in 2003 as a youth pastor where he served for about 3 years. In 2005, he cofounded Walk the Line Ministries
, which has the goal of encouraging and equipping young Christians for ministry though mentorship and hands-on ministry experience, especially on the mission field. In 2010 he accepted the pastorate of Northeast PFWB Church where he served for nearly 6 years. Sam is also a former middle school teacher, has about 17 years of ministry experience, and a Master’s Degree in Theological Studies from Liberty University. He loves his wife, Brooks, of 11 years and praises God daily that she is his co-laborer in God’s Kingdom. In April 2015 they welcomed their son, Kross into the world which was truly a miracle since they were given basically no hope of having children. He is evidence that God is in control.
