DENMARK — Voorhees College graduate Rev. Dr. Donald E. Greene, Jr. was recently installed as the 17th president of the Baptist Educational and Missionary Convention of South Carolina  during his investiture ceremony service.

“I am truly honored and count it a blessing for the trust you have instilled in me to lead God’s people as the 17th president of the Baptist Educational and Missionary Convention of the great state of South Carolina. Rest assured that I will always be a committed servant leader. May the spirit of Christ guide us along our Christian pilgrimage,” Greene said.

The objective of the BEMSC is to promote the cause of Christ everywhere, and especially in South Carolina by aiding Christian education, and by establishing a high-grade and well equipped college which shall give theological and literary training to our young men and women.

The Convention is comprised of 1,100 Baptist churches and 230,000 individual members across the state of South Carolina. Convention auxiliaries include: Congress of Christian Education, Brotherhood convention, Ushers Convention, Music Ministry, and Young Woman's Auxiliary (YWA).

Greene graduated from Voorhees in 1988 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. He earned a master’s degree in theology and pastoral studies and received an honorary doctorate in divinity.

In addition to serving as the president of the BEMSC, he is the pastor of Andrew Chapel Baptist Church in Orangeburg, S.C., where he has served for more than 20 years.
