Pastor, C. L. Norman
Column: About Us
Pastor Clinton L. Norman, Jr., born to Clinton L. Norman, Sr. and Fannie Lee Norman, in Mount Pleasant, Mississippi, where he spent most of his childhood. His family later moved to Red Banks, Mississippi. He is the fifth of ten siblings. He attended Sandflat and Sims Elementary Schools in Mississippi and is a 1976 graduate of Holly Springs High School in Holly Springs, Mississippi.
He accepted his call into the ministry June 1979, shortly after his marriage to Virginia Banks. He is the father of five beautiful children, Clinton T., Ginger, Christopher, Brandi and Kenerah.
Pastor Norman attended W.H. Brewster Theological School in Memphis Tennessee, and Rust College in Holly Springs, Mississippi, where he studied Sociology.
Pastor Norman preached his first sermon September 1979 and was ordained March 18, 1980. He was called to his first pastorate at Concord Missionary Baptist Church in Slayden, Mississippi in January 1981. He served there four years preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In 1987 he was called to be Shepherd of the Pine Grove M.B. Church in Tupelo, Mississippi. He felt the Lord wanted to use him in a more profound way and sought to accomplish that call by venturing out on faith. He migrated to Chicago, IL, April 1988 and became the Assistant Pastor of the Stone Temple M.B. Church. He served there for six years under the Pastorate of the late Pastor J.M. Stone. He became Pastor after the death of Pastor Stone.
In the summer of 1995, the Lord spoke to Pastor Norman and instructed him to step out in His name and organize a church. That step created a new beginning and the New Genesis Assembly of God Baptist Church was organized by God’s grace. The church has and continues to experience tremendous Christian growth, spiritually and financially.
Pastor Norman has saved many souls through the preaching of the gospel. He has shared and spread the Gospel throughout the USA, (Ohio, Missouri, California, Florida, Tennessee, Georgia. Louisiana, Texas, etc…)
To God be the glory for all the marvelous things he has done.
