CORONA, Calif., Nov. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lakeshore City Church Senior Pastor Charlie Moulton was elected as the California Southern Baptist Pastors' Convention president on October 25, 2016, at the annual California Southern Baptist Convention.
Pastor Moulton will be the Pastors' Convention president for 2017, succeeding Shane Hicks.
Moulton was nominated by Dr. Chris Morgan, Dean of School of Christian Ministries and Professor of Theology at California Baptist University. In Dr. Morgan's nomination speech from the floor of the convention, he said that Moulton "is one of the rising leaders in our movement" and has "one of the healthiest, growing churches" he has been able to see expand.
Pastor Moulton began Lakeshore City Church in the living room of his home with less than 30 people. Since the planting of Lakeshore, it has grown significantly and nearly 50% of the congregation are first time converts.
