“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13

Pastor Rev. Raymond B. Wilkins is a native of Spartanburg County, South Carolina where he, along with his twin, was born the eighth child of eight children to Mrs. Rose G. Wilkins and the late Mr. Floyd Wilkins.

He was educated in Spartanburg County public schools, and attended James F. Byrnes High School Duncan, South Carolina.

Pastor Wilkins received and accepted Christ at an early age while attending Moore’s Chapel Baptist Church, Duncan, SC., and began serving in many ministries including the usher and choir ministry. He served as Chairman of the Trustee ministry and was later elected as Chairman of the Deacon’s ministry. While serving as Chairman of the Deacon’s ministry God called him into the gospel ministry in September 2003, and he preached his initial sermon on September 11, 2005. Pastor Wilkins was a member of the Meadowbrook All Male Choir from 1980 until 1983. He still enjoys singing songs of Zion.

Pastor Wilkins enrolled in Virginia College in 2012 with emphasis in Business Management where he earned his Associates Degree. He has currently received his Master degree of Theology from M.C. Garvin School of Theology held at the St. John Baptist Church, Spartanburg, SC under the instruction of the Rev. Dr. M.C. Garvin.

He served as Associate Minister of New Fellowship Baptist Church in Wellford, SC from October 2003 until November 2007. He went on to become pastor of James Hopewell Baptist Church in Newberry, SC from November 2007 until January 2010 and Abel Baptist Church in Clemson, SC from December 2011 until January 2013. He is currently the pastor of the newly formed Greater Faith Baptist Church in Clemson, SC.

Pastor Wilkins is faithfully united in marriage to First Lady Robin A. Wilkins. Together they share five children: Jamar, Raymond Jr., Shalonda, Denetrice, Rayvond; and two grandchildren, Mackenzie and Jamaria.

Although degrees are important nothing is more important than being a child of God, teacher of God’s Holy Word, born again Christian, a servant, a warrior for Christ and a called messenger for the Most High God.
