Don Flowers is the first (and so far only) pastor of Providence Baptist Church in Charleston, SC. Before moving to the Lowcountry he served as Minister of Youth and Activities at First Baptist, Greenville, SC and as Minister of Youth and Children at First Baptist Church, Lenoir, NC.
Don is a native of Cherryville, NC. He has a BA from Wake Forest (and loves the Demon Deacons,) a M. Div from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (when it was a seminary,) and a D. Min from Emory University. His dissertation is entitled Sexual Ethics for Parents, reflecting his vocation of helping individuals make good decisions about sexuality. He has lived that out in his service with the SC Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, where he has served two terms as the board chair. In 2009 he received the Murray Vincent Outstanding Prevention Professional Award.
Don is married to Anita, a career coach with Blue Sage Career Strategies. They have 2 married daughters. When he isn’t working he enjoys biking, golf and being outside, especially near the water. He had a sailboat until he realized it deserved a better owner and set it free!
