Dr. Chris Partin

I was called as Pastor of Plymouth Church on August 1, 2006. I grew up in Garner and actually accepted Christ at Plymouth Church when I was eight years old on June 23, 1981.

I am now returning to pastor a church that I love and know well. My wife Dawn and I have been married since 1997 and we have three wonderful children. I am passionate about preaching God's Word and reaching people for Christ.

In 2018 I experienced some major health issues. The church family stood by me and my family and the whole experience made us all closer to one another and to the Lord. Now I am healthy and have a new perspective and outlook on life. I take nothing for granted and my life's motto is: Life Is Short - Live It well!

Ministry Experience: New Bethel Baptist Church in Garner, Ephesus Baptist in Raleigh, Olive Chapel Baptist in Apex, and New Beginnings Church in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

Education: I graduated from Campbell University in 1996 with a BA in Christian Ministries. I received my Master's degree as a charter member of the Campbell University Divinity School in 1999. I earned my Doctorate in Apologetics at Southern Evangelical Seminary in 2008.

Hobbies and Interests: I am an avid sports fan and I especially love the NCAA tournament. I enjoy spending time with my family, exercising, and listening to music from the 1980's. I also love being around people and I am blessed to have many great friends.
Favorite Scripture: Isaiah 55:8-9 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways says the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts."

Youth Minister

Dawn Currin

I have been in church at Plymouth for as long as I can remember. I accepted Christ as my Savior at Summer Camp with our youth group. I have always had a passion to work with and help others. For years (almost 20) I have worked in different ministry areas at Plymouth Church, mostly with children's ministry programs.

I been blessed to be the Youth Minister at Plymouth for more than seven years now. It is my desire to grow more in Christ as I help to mentor the students in the Plymouth Church Youth Ministry. I pray that the Lord continues to work through my ministry at Plymouth and that the Youth continue to want to learn, serve, and worship the Lord more.

Favorite Things To Do: Play softball, watch my boys play baseball/softball, being on or near the water (boating)
