Pastors & Staff

Dave Shorter

Interim Pastor

I have been a pastor for more than 40 years. I moved to South Carolina in 2000 from East Tennessee. I am the Founder/Counselor of The Potter’s House FAMILY COUNSELING. Also, a certified LIFE COACH. My wife Kathy and I have two daughters and a son (who is also a pastor).
Kathy and I have 8 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. I love to teach, preach and make a difference in the lives of others. I love any sport and I am a DEVOUT University of Tennessee fan! (forgive me)
