Dr. Carey C. Snellings
Pastor Snellings came to Philadelphia Baptist Church in February of 2018 with his wife Jennifer, son Nathan, and daughter Kaylee. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Maryland Baltimore County in Catonsville, MD, a Master of Divinity degree from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY, and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC.
Since coming into the ministry in 2000, he has served in four churches. He was a Staff Pastor at Montrose Baptist Church in Rockville, MD, Senior Pastor of MorningStar Community Church in Laytonsville, MD, Senior Pastor of Hunting Creek Baptist Church in Big Island, VA, and now as Senior Pastor at Philadelphia.
Pastor Snellings favorite activity is preaching God’s Word. He also enjoys spending time with family, sports, gardening and home improvements, travel, video games, history, metal detecting, animals, and eating good food.
A lifelong Southern Baptist, Dr. Snellings adamantly adheres to the Baptist Faith and Message 2000, and is a believer in the effectiveness of the Cooperative Program. He feels privileged to serve in ministry, holds the church as the most important entity in the world today, wants nothing more than to see people come into saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, and is driven by his desire to be part of growing the Kingdom of God. He has many verses that he holds dear, but his current life verse is Ephesians 3:20-21.
