Poplar Tent Welcomes New Pastor
Exciting news from Poplar Tent! After nearly a two and a half year long pastor search, the Poplar Tent congregation at a special called Congregational Meeting on Sunday, September 6th, voted to accept the terms of call for Pastor Clark Remsburg.
Pastor Clark comes to us from First Presbyterian Church in Canton, Mississippi where he served as the pastor for seven years.
Clark and his wife Marilyn have been married for twenty-eight years and have four children; Shiloh, Rachel, Luke and Hannah. Shiloh is married to Lahcen Qasserras and they have a daughter, Nisreen. The entire family has moved to Concord to be with Clark in his new ministry. Clark is a native of South Carolina and holds a B.S. of Finance from the University of South Carolina and a Master of Divinity from Erskine Theological Seminary.
Poplar Tent spent a little over a year surveying the congregation to determine what the church wanted, not only in a preacher, but also for themselves. That soul searching lead to our Mission/Vision Statement which guided the Pastoral Nominating Committee in its search for our pastor.
The Pastoral Nominating Committee, which included seven members from the congregation, spent a little over a year going through the process, knowing that the Lord already knew who our next preacher was going to be; we just had to find him.
Pastor Clark will preach his first sermon on Sunday, September 13th. Please help Poplar Tent Presbyterian Church welcome the Remsburg family to the community. All are invited to greet Pastor Clark and attend worship at Poplar Tent at our 10:30 am Sunday Morning Worship Service. We will have a covered dish luncheon immediately following the service in our Fellowship Building; so come out and say hello to Clark and his family. Come grow with Poplar Tent Presbyterian and join in our new spiritual journey!
