Dr. Shane Garrison will preach a trial sermon August 22 at Bethany Baptist Church in Louisville, KY. Garrison is being considered as a possible interim pastor for the church.
Bethany Baptist was formerly pastored by Dr. Chuck Fuller, longtime friend and colleague of Garrison, who has taken a full time teaching position at Anderson University in Anderson, SC. Dr. Fuller served as Bethany’s pastor for over 6 years.
Garrison has preached once before at Bethany. He filled the pulpit back in November 2009 while Dr. Fuller was taking a sabbatical.
Garrison is one of six candidates for the interim pastor. Others include two faculty members at Southern Seminary and a denominational leader with the Kentucky Baptist Convention. The final decision will be announced mid-September after all six candidates have preached and met with the search committee.
