Welcome Pastor Stephen P. “Gutty” Gutridge!

Stephen P. “Gutty” Gutridge

We are excited to welcome and introduce you to our new interim Pastor, the Reverend Stephen P. “Gutty” Gutridge! Pastor Gutty is a graduate of the University of Louisville, in Louisville, Kentucky and received his Masters of Divinity at Palmer Theological Seminary in Wayne, Pennsylvania in 1981.

Pastor Gutty has always had a heart for people that do not know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.  He has been trained at the Billy Graham School of Evangelism, and other church growth and evangelism courses and seminars.  During the years he has led hundreds of people to faith in Christ one on one and many more through his preaching.  He is an experienced conference and retreat speaker as well as a successful local church pastor and a radio talk show co-host with his wife Paula.  He and Paula have two grown sons; Charlie, married to Mary Elizabeth, “M.E.” and Steve.  Charlie and M.E. blessed them with their first grandchild, James, and their first granddaughter, Summer Raye.

Pastor Gutty is pleased to begin his ministry as Interim/Transitional Pastor at the Bethesda Presbyterian Church in Aberdeen, NC on January 16, 2022.
