Hi there! Thanks a lot for visiting our website and checking out Shannon Park Baptist. My name is Rodney May and I have been the senior pastor at SPBC since 2015. I grew up in Michigan and spent 6 years in North Carolina. I have been married to my high school sweetheart since 2003. We have 2 awesome kids: River (boy) and Laike (pronounced “Lake,” girl). They love playing Xbox and with Legos. My wife, Deanna, enjoys making cool custom party cakes. I enjoy the outdoors, fishing, and riding my bike (primarily downhill). My wife and I earned our Associate’s in Biblical Studies through New Tribes Bible Institute. I then went on to earn my Bachelor’s in Bible with a Minor in Counseling from Piedmont International University. Most recently, I finished up my Master’s Degree in Pastoral Counseling through Liberty University. I was a youth pastor for 3 ½ years in the little town of Bailey, MI and then an associate pastor for 2 ½ years in Albion, MI. Before moving to Alaska, I served as Lead Counselor for 4 years in North Carolina at a large Baptist church. I thoroughly enjoy serving the Lord in whatever capacity He desires. I am humbled to serve Him as the senior pastor at SPBC.
