...
Pearson graduated with a degree in Religion and Theology from Oakwood College. He has done graduate work at the University of Kentucky and Georgia State University.
Pearson's ministerial experience includes a four year term as Director of Youth and Urban Ministry programs for the Allegheny West Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. He has provided pastoral leadership for congregations in Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Georgia. For five years, Pearson served as Senior Pastor of the North Philadelphia Seventh-day Adventist Church. During that period, North Philadelphia claimed more than 1,500 members and was the second largest church in that Conference. In 1993, he completed a term of more than eight years as Senior Pastor of the twenty-one hundred member Berean Seventh-day Adventist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. During his tenure in Atlanta, he was a member of the Executive Board with Mayor Maynard Jackson's Atlanta Religious Mobilization Against Crime (ARMAC) and a volunteer Chaplain for two law enforcement agencies.
While serving as a district pastor, Pearson was invited to preach across the United States at churches, colleges, universities, youth rallies, convocations and camp meetings. He conducted successful evangelistic crusades annually in each of his districts as well as others in Kingston, Jamaica; Tema, Ghana; Warsaw, Poland; Nairobi, Kenya; and two in London, England. His zeal to communicate the Gospel message has carried him to 57 countries on six continents and the island nations of the sea. The Lord has honored his faith with more than nine thousand baptisms to date. Pearson also served as Executive Director and Speaker for television programs in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Atlanta, Georgia.
This minister has received numerous awards from significant religious, academic and civic organizations including three honorary doctorate degrees. On four separate occasions, he has been named "Pastor of the Year" by his Local Conference. In 1991, he became the first Seventh-day Adventist member of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Board of Preachers and Collegium of Scholars at Morehouse College in Atlanta. In 1996, he was selected to be the Divine Worship speaker for the Centennial Alumni Homecoming at his alma mater, Oakwood College. The North American Division has announced that Pearson will be speaker for "Net 2004," an international satellite event.
He is married to the former Sandra Holland who serves as Director of Public Service Ministries and Associate Field Services Director for the Breath of Life Telecast.
