Pastor Alan Higgins grew up in North Charlotte (Hidden Valley community), lived on the East Side graduating from Garinger High School, went to college at UNC-Charlotte, worked most of his career on the South Side of Charlotte, and now Pastors on the West Side at Hoskins Avenue Baptist Church. Pastor Higgins knows Charlotte and the surrounding area and has seen and been through all the changes in the Charlotte area over the past 50 years.
God completely changed his life in December 1999 when he received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. God called Pastor Higgins into the ministry first involving him in kids ministry, then seeing him serve in multiple capacities in the church as an usher, a deacon, a men's ministry leader, a facility manager, and Pastor Intern at Christ Community Church in Huntersville NC.
Pastor Higgins stepped away from his 25 career in management to begin a new journey to become a Pastor. He attended and graduated from Rockbridge Seminary in June 2011 with a Masters Degree in Ministry Leadership and was ordained as a Pastor in November 2012.
These changes have led to him being called as the Pastor of Hoskins Avenue Baptist Church in October 2012 starting a new chapter in his life and the life of the church. Over the past 5 years the church has seen many changes all with a purpose to see this church brought back to life and to see it full of people worshipping and serving the Lord faithfully. Pastor Higgins has tapped into his leadership skills to bring about this change and to do so by making partnerships with other churches and organizations in the Charlotte Mecklenburg region. His hope is to see this church be a model and a pioneer for other churches to be raised back to where God intended and to reach the people of Charlotte and the region with the great news of hope and salvation that comes from Jesus Christ.
Pastor Alan is married to his childhood sweetheart Debbie (who is also from Charlotte and is a former nurse and instructor serving people all over Charlotte) for 31 years and he has two sons Chris (28) and Evan (24).
His hobbies include serving God, playing golf, traveling, and watching sports especially football and basketball.
Pastor Higgins is very approachable and would love to meet you.
Please come to Hoskins and discover what God is doing at the church.
