My name is David Horner. Until the end of 2015, I pastored Providence Baptist Church in Raleigh, NC. With twelve other couples we started the church in 1978 and served there as pastor for thirty-seven plus years. I grew up in Graham, NC, went for undergraduate studies to Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC, then on to prepare for pastoral ministry at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in S. Hamilton, Massachusetts. Most recently, in 2015 I began the pursuit of a PhD at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, and in 2016 began a new ministry called Equipped for Life. My wife Cathy and I married in 1973 and have three wonderful sons married to three amazing daughters-in-law and five awesome grandchildren. Our youngest son, Jon is an Upper School Humanities teacher at Trinity and his son, Graham is a Trinity student.
