Meet The Pastor

An Humble Servant

Are the words you will hear Pastor ask God to use him as over and over again.  Pastor Finley came to us in 2010 as God was preparing us for a new Pastor.  There was much controversy when Pastor accepted the call, alot of unpaid taxes, utilites, repairs, the feeling of hopelessness and wounded spirt in the church. Some would have been discourage and went the other way, not our Pastor!!! He came in with his sleeves rolled up not expecting anything yet showing us how God loves the least of these.

He is an educated man that loves the Word of God.  He has a Bachlor of Science in Construction Mangaement with three years focus in Architecture from Tuskegee University.   While working full time at Jenkins Construction, pastor has taken on full time duties here at New Truth.  He has brought all our utilites current and property taxes and he has facilitated many major repairs, necessary upgrades and continues to practice his love of Christ through his service here.

He has studied at Midwestern Bible College and is currently seeking his Master's from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Eventhough our pastor's schedule is extremely busy he has found the time to hold the office of Recording Secretary and Vice President of Congress of Christian Education for the Greater Love District of the BME State Convention.  He is also a memeber of the Westside Minister Fellowship were he currently holds the position as Second Vice President and a member of the Southern Baptist Convention.  His love and devotion to his home church New Grace MBC in Highland Park is always evident through his willingness to assist his Pastor whenever called upon and support his home family. 

Pastor Finley is loving, diligently and prayfully rebuilding our small Congregation to be missionaries for the kingdom, for him it is all about the Kingdom. He has a strong love and compassion for the least of these.  Prior to  becoming the Pastor here he had begun his quest to start a mens homeless shelter.  We are so Glad that God has the final say, because since our pastor has come here he has pushed us into the ministry of helping the homeless.   We now have our Take it to the Street Ministry which is where we as the congregation go out feed and witness the Love and Word of God to those in the Cass Corridor area and now through the direction of our pastor and God guiding him we have started our second phase where we are feeding from the church. He has furthered encouraged us to give out Thanksgiving Boxes every Thanksgiving to any family in need.  (This is a weeks worth of food for needy families.)  We have given away up to 20 boxes a year.  During Christmas our Adopt a family has given us so much pleasure.  Pastor Finley has a great vision for New Truth and one of those is to be a church the community can see loves them like Christ loves us!!

Pastor Finley has  been married to his wife Sis. Michele Finley for over 19 years from this union they enjoy three beautiful children, Demetrius, Aaliyah and Arrianna.  His family has embraced us in their loving arms and our Pastor steadily expounds his Love of Jesus on us.  We are expecting only great things for our future with the leadership of Pastor Finley and Christ as his guide.
