Miguel A. Betancourt II, Pastor
Pastor Mike holds both undergraduate and graduate degrees from Bob Jones University and has been on staff here since 1992. He and his wife, Leeann, were married in May 1986 at Heritage Bible in Greenville (now located in Greer, SC) where they also were actively serving in the youth ministry there. Leeann also holds undergrad and graduate degrees from BJU.
After leaving Greenville in October 1990, they moved to the Atlanta area with their daughter Katie to serve in the ministry there. In September of 1992 the three of them moved to North Charleston, SC where Pastor Mike served as the youth/assistant pastor at Ferndale Baptist. God blessed Pastor Mike and Leeann with the expansion of their family when both of their sons, Mike and Timmy were born in North Charleston (1992 and 1996, respectively).
On July 30, 2008, Pastor Mike accepted the church’s call to serve as its seventh pastor. Katie graduated from Bob Jones University in May 2012 and looks forward to completing her Master's degree in Education at BJU in May 2014. She plans to get married to Matt Ashley after graduation. Katie's brother Mike is a junior Bible major at Bob Jones University and is preparing for the ministry. Timmy is a senior in high school and is being homeschooled. He plans to attend BJU the following year to begin preparing for the ministry.
