Leicester – The Mount Carmel Baptist Church will be holding an installation service for their new pastor Rev. Will Harris on Sunday, August 25, at 10:35 am.
Rev. Harris is originally from Clarkesville, Georgia, but is excited to now call Western North Carolina home. He was saved at the age of five and called to preach at fifteen. Pastor Will earned his Bachelor’s degree in history from Tennessee Temple University and his Masters of Divinity degree in Theology and Preaching from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he met his wife, Lindsey, while she was also studying for her Masters of Divinity in Christian Ethics.
The two were married in the Fall of 2015 and have since served churches in Georgia and North Carolina. They have a Golden Retriever, Cooper, and are expecting their first child, Liv, this September. Pastor Will enjoys fishing, kayaking, exploring new restaurants and coffee shops, and watching Georgia football. The Mount Carmel Baptist is located at 200 Mount Carmel Road in the Erwin Hills area.
