OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM

 

 

 PASTOR SAM SUMNER

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. 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 nearly 20 years of ministry experience, and a Master’s Degree in Theological Studies from Liberty University.

He loves his wife, Brooks, of 14 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, and then in 2016 their second child, Brantley was born. They are both evidence that God is in control.

 

PASTOR BROOKS SUMNER

Brooks is a driven and passionate minister who has a vision to see people grow spiritually and become active participates in the Body of Christ. She believes that we are not only called to love Jesus but to also love His Church.

She is an ordained minister with the PFWB with 14 years ministry experience that includes evangelism, discipleship, mission work, etc. Brooks has also served as the Girls Ministry director of the Pentecostal Free Will Baptist denomination, preach in numerous churches throughout Eastern North Carolina, and been the key note speaker at several women’s and leadership events. In 2016 she returned “home” to Pathway Church when her husband, Sam, was offered the pastorate there, and in 2018 she was asked to serve alongside him as an associate pastor. She and Sam are blessed to serve the people of Pathway and raise their kids, Kross and Brantley, in such a vibrant and loving body of believers.

CONNECT TO GOD

We believe there is no better way to invest your life and get planted in the house of God than to connect with Him daily. Personal devotion is the daily practice of making space in your life to seek God. You can do this through prayer and reading the Scripture.
 
Participating faithfully in church services plays an important role in keeping our spiritual life on track. At Pathway Church we believe it is vital to establish a consistent connection to God and grow in your walk with Him.
