Pastor Kerry W. Tillmon was born February 5, 1963, to the late Warren Sr. and Louise Tillmon. He was their youngest of five children. After his mother’s passing, his father, aunts, uncles, other family members and the West Point family became a support system for this unique young man.
At the age of (18) eighteen, Kerry W. Tillmon, responded to God’s call and purpose for his life (Jeremiah 29:11), thereby accepting the awesome responsibility of proclaiming the gospel of Christ. A repertoire of sermons has been preached over the years and many selected favorites have been embedded in the hearts and minds of God’s people.
In August 2009, Pastor Tillmon stood boldly and represented the citizens of Galveston and Galveston County as he was afforded the opportunity to declare God’s Word at the112th Annual Lott Carey Baptist Foreign Mission Convention in Raleigh, North Carolina. He presented the Convention with an overview of the damages caused by Hurricane Ike.
Pastor Tillmon is a graduate of Houston Baptist University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Christianity and a minor in Government and received his Master’s of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies from Knox Theological Seminary.
