PNBC President Timothy Stewart Dies

The Rev. Dr. Timothy Stewart, president for more than three decades of the D.C.-based Progressive National Baptist Convention, has died.

Stewart, who served as pastor of the historic Bethel Baptist Church in Nassau, Bahamas, and was an accomplished international spiritual and civic leader, died on Sept. 17.

In August 2018, he became the first-ever non-American to ascend to PNBC president, which has a membership of more than 2.5 million throughout North America, the Caribbean and the world.

According to his biography, prior to pursuing a Master of Divinity degree in Theology at Southern Baptist Seminary, Stewart’s early Christian training included a 1980 Bachelor of Arts Degree in Bible and Theology with a minor in History and Social Science from the American Baptist College.

He continued his formal education at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, and was awarded an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from Eastern Theological Seminary in Lynchburg, Va.

Stewart is survived by his wife, Sharon Stewart, and their children, Timothy, Michael and Gardner Calvin, as well as the Bethel Baptist Church family.
