Pastor Reginald Belton

Pastor Belton is an innovative leader, dynamic preacher and a bright theologian.  Pastor Belton is a visual artist whose strokes contain appropriate life application of the text to his people.

Pastor Belton has always believed that one’s first ministry is to one’s family. He and the Minister Thelma Belton met shortly after high school as friends who fell in love.  They were later married in 1994. Their marriage and ministry has been shaped by their faith and friendship. Pastor and Mrs. Belton are the proud parents of two children, Adriane and Darius.  

 

Pastor Belton holds undergraduate degrees in Telecommunication Systems Management (with a concentration in Computer Technology) and in Technical Management.  He earned his Master of Divinity Degree from Erskine Theological Seminary and is currently preparing to attend Alliance Theological Seminary of New York to purse his Doctor of Ministry. 

 

Pastor Belton’s established relationships with sister churches, community and local political organizations has enabled him to provide current and future information to his parishioners, so that the Frist Baptist Church of Brownsville may continue to move towards being an effective worship community in the 21st century.  

 

Minister Thelma Belton

Minister Belton is a first lady who truly loves the Lord and His people.  She works tirelessly alongside her husband, Pastor Reginald Belton, to ensure that the First Baptist Church of Brownsville worship community continues to mature in the Lord.   However, it has been her effective leadership skills as the Advisor of the Women’s Ministry, which has demonstrated her commitment to the community of women and their continual collaboration of work in the Lord’s vineyard.
