CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – The new transitional pastor at First Baptist Church London is Dr. G. Ted Taylor, associate vice president for development and church relations and director of FIRST CLASS and church outreach at Campbellsville University.

 

Dr. G. Ted Taylor, associate vice president for
development and church relations and director of
FIRST CLASS and church outreach at
Campbellsville University, is the new transitional
pastor at First Baptist Church, London.

Taylor had just completed a successful transitional pastorate at First Baptist Church in Bowling Green when FBC London found they were in need of a transitional pastor.

Randall Brewer, chairman of the interim pastor committee at First Baptist Church in London said, “After much thought and prayer, the church unanimously invited Dr. Taylor to be our transitional pastor. We feel very confident his leadership abilities and experience will provide a positive and smooth transition for our church.”

Taylor said, “I am excited to serve with the church staff and church leadership in moving First Baptist Church London forward during this transitional period.” During his 40-year career, he has served both full time and bi-vocationally.

Janette Meyer said, “I am excited for the First Baptist Church of London to hear that they have called Dr. Ted Taylor to serve as their transition pastor. My family and I were blessed last year when he served in that capacity at First Baptist Church, Bowling Green. He brought new life to us with his rich Biblical sermons and teaching and began a renewal for us which is now the basis for our new pastor to build upon.”

Campbellsville University president Michael V. Carter said, “In addition to his years of service as a valued faculty member in the CU School of Theology, Dr. Ted Taylor is a very gifted pastor and preacher.”

Taylor received his associate of arts degree from Hiwassee College in Madisonville, Tenn. in 1972; his bachelor of science in business administration/marketing from the University of Tennessee in 1972; his master of arts in Christian education from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville in 1981 and his doctorate in education in 1987 from Memphis State University in Memphis, Tenn.

He was born in Knoxville, Tenn., and is married to Sheri Marie Jones Taylor. Their children and grandchildren live in Knoxville -- daughter Ashley and grandchildren Taylor and Carson Jessie; and son, Brannon and grandchildren Reece, Rylee and Will Taylor.

Campbellsville University is a widely acclaimed Kentucky-based Christian university with more than 3,500 students offering over 80 programs of study including 24 master’s degrees, seven postgraduate areas and eight pre-professional programs.
