Fishermen Baptist Church is blessed to have a wonderful staff. We thank the Lord for the wonderful laborers He has given us.
Shawn Major, Pastor
Shawn & Larrica Major are from Bay Minette, AL. It was on a Sunday in 1989 that they attended a church in Bay Minette. On Thursday of that week, a soul-winner team from that church knocked on that door. The gospel was presented and Shawn and Larrica trusted Christ as their Savior. Within a few months, Shawn surrendered to the call to preach the gospel.
After serving in two previous churches, he accepted the call to be the Assistant Pastor at Fishermen in 2006. Upon Pastor Wayne Mund’s retiring in January 2018, Shawn assumed the role of Pastor.
James Nowell, Assistant Pastor
James is a lifelong native of south Alabama and was raised as a commercial fisherman. In 1980 he met his future wife, Kathy, and they married in 1983. James and Kathy began attending Fishermen Baptist Church in the Fall of 1989, and both were saved in March of 1990 and became members of Fishermen. James has been in full-time ministry since 2008. He first pastored the Arkadelphia Baptist Church for five years. He then began ministering as a missionary to the seafarers at the Port of Mobile, Alabama for five years. Then, on September 1, 2018, he began serving on staff at the church, and he is now the Assistant Pastor.
