Rev. John Prettyman

Associate/Visitation/Choir Director

From a career of teaching, running track, and playing trumpet, God changed John Prettyman’s life and direction in his early twenties. Having been on track scholarship at the University of Maryland and after graduation, still playing his trumpet professionally and running with the Baltimore Olympic Club, John sensed a great emptiness in his life. In August of 1966, God really dealt with him about his running…and showed him that he was spiritually, running empty. Soon after hearing a heart-stirring message by Pastor Herb Fitzpatrick about David running from Saul, John, under great conviction, went to an old abandoned airport, surrendering his life to Christ. Shortly thereafter, the Lord led him to Seminary and into the ministries of music, school administration, and youth.

God opened doors through Dr. Lee Roberson for John to serve as band director and professor in music at Tennessee Temple College while also serving as music and youth pastor at a local church. It was at this church where John was ordained. He later served as minister of music at First Baptist of New Castle, Delaware, with Pastor Leonard Chavis; music pastor and elementary principal at Central Baptist Church and Christian Schools in Panama City, Florida, with Dr. Huge Pyle; and then with Dr. Herbert Fitzpatrick at First Baptist Church of Riverdale, Maryland, as assistant principal.

In June, 1974, God led John to Macon where he has had an amazing journey in music, youth, band, and track. He has served with Pastors Larry Reesor, John Reynolds, Bob Wilson, S. L. Sherrill, and Rodney Queen. In the midst of a very fulfilling life, in 2004, John received notice that, because of his track accomplishments and records, both in the State of Delaware and at the University of Maryland, he was being inducted into the Delaware Track and Field Hall of Fame.

John has been married to Katherine McBryar since 1969 and they've been blessed with five children and eight grandchildren. John still enjoys the outdoors, track and field events, trumpet, and all his music.
