Let us introduce you to the staff here at Spring Creek. These are the leaders that minister to us and shepherd our congregation.
BILLY J. CURRY – LEAD PASTOR Pastor Billy began his Pastoral Ministry at Spring Creek Church on Sunday, April 18, 2021.
He attended Spring Creek Church as a child and was called to the ministry under the pastorate of Rev. Bruce Carpenter. Rev. Carpenter told Billy that “he would be his Timothy”. Pastor Billy attended Nazarene Bible College (satellite classes) and became an ordained minister in the Church of the Nazarene in 2000.
Pastor Billy served as the Senior Pastor at the Orange Church of the Nazarene from June, 1996 through November, 2010. He then accepted the call to the Estaline Valley Church of the Nazarene and served God faithfully from December, 2010 through April 4, 2021.
Pastor Billy married Donna (Daggy) Curry on May 10, 1987 and recently celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary. They have two (2) adult children, Whitney Mohamed and Jairus Curry, and six (6) grandchildren, Jenna, Alivia, Baraka, Amina, Omar and Eid.
The Curry’s are very excited to be back home where they can spend time with their families and get reacquainted with the community! God has brought them full circle as their ministry began here and Lord willing will conclude here surrounded by family, friends, and neighbors!
God has great things in store for the Spring Creek Church and the Curry’s are grateful and blessed that God chose them to be part of His plan!
Tina was born in Rock Island, Illinois. She began going to church and became a Christian as a young teenager. She graduated from Rock Island High School in 1986, and then from Olivet Nazarene University in 1991 with a double major in social work and psychology. She has been married to Tom Nelson for 16 years and has one daughter, Madison, who is 17 years old. She has been involved in youth ministry for over 25 years and has been doing it full time for a total of over 20 years. She has been at Spring creek for a total of 19 years and she loves watching teens come to know Christ and grow in their relationship with Him on a daily basis.
Steve was raised on his family's dairy farm in Singers Glen, VA. He was gloriously saved at a revival service at Spring Creek Church of the Nazarene in July 1999 when he was 26 years old. Spring Creek became his home church and he was lovingly welcomed into the family of God. He is married to his beautiful bride Tina and they have one son Jebediah (Jeb). His ministry goal is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all the teens that he can; letting them know that God loves them and has a plan for their lives if they will accept Him as their Lord and Savior. He also wants to shepherd and help them grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ through teaching, preaching, and modeling a Christian life to them so they can change the world for God.
Charity and Aaron moved to Briery Branch the summer of 2016 and became members of Spring Creek Church of the Nazarene in 2017. "We felt called to become the children's ministry leaders as a husband and wife team in May of 2018. Our mission for Creek Kidz is to be a light for the children that come to church as well as being the hands and feet of Jesus", Charity said.
They enjoy spending time as a family. Aaron loves to hunt and Charity enjoys taking bicycle rides.
