Allen & Melissa Mashburn
Allen Mashburn was born and reared in Carthage, NC. He was saved at the age of 10 at Summer Hill Baptist Church, and felt the Lord's call to preach at age 13.
He immediately began preaching in nursing homes and churches. By the time he graduated from high school, he had already preached in dozens of churches, Christian schools, and held revival meetings and special days in several states. To date, he has preached across much of the country as well as in Israel.
He received his educational training at Tennessee Temple University, and has continued at Temple Baptist Seminary - Piedmont International University. Currently, he is nearing completion of his Master of Arts in Ministry (M.A.), and Master of Divinity (M.Div.).
His ministry experience is unique in that he was able to shadow and learn firsthand from Dr. Lee Roberson and Dr. J. R Faulkner, one of the last generation to do so. Before both went to heaven, they both recommended his ministry without reservation.
He has pastored several churches in the past as well as serving in itinerate ministry. He has a heart for evangelism and preaching in the ministry of the local church which has taken him to many churches home and abroad. He has served in many ministry, civic, and industry leadership and advisory roles including:
President, Conservative Pastors' Fellowship of Central North Carolina (2017, 2019)
Former Member of the Board of Directors, National Association of Insurance & Financial Advisors (NAIFA - Central North Carolina)
Served on the NC Department of Insurance Advisory Board to the Commissioner 2013-2015; Appointed by the NC Commissioner of Insurance
Former Secretary--Treasurer, Conservative Pastors' Fellowship of Central North Carolina (8 yrs)
Melissa was born and reared in Whispering Pines, NC and received her educational training from St. Andrews University. She is a certified educator in the State of North Carolina and leader of a local homeschool group. She homeschools their children; Zachary, Lexi, Haley, and John Luke (born July 29, 2019).
From 2013-2015, Brother Mashburn and his family, became active members at Acorn Ridge Baptist Church in Robbins, NC. During this time, he assisted the pastor in many facets of the ministry and in 2016 was asked to be the Assistant Pastor at Acorn Ridge where he oversaw the music, youth, radio, and media ministries.
From March to December of 2020, he served as the Interim Pastor of Asbury Baptist Church in Seagrove, NC. After much prayer, on December 13, 2020, Asbury Baptist Church called him to be their pastor, where he currently serves. In addition, he is the Director of Gospel Dynamite, Inc., the non-profit arm, that produces the radio, video, and podcasts of their ministry.
Pastor Mashburn is available for a limited number of special meetings during the year. Should you desire to contact him, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is their desire that the Pray4USA movement would grow and many would pray for America, the Lord's people, and our children in seeking God's mercy and revival for the days ahead.
