Rev. Dr. Timothy StewartOct 30, 1956 - Sept 17, 2021
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of our beloved 21st President, Rev. Dr. Timothy Stewart.
Dr. Stewart faithfully served the Progressive National Baptist Convention for over 3 decades, making history in 2018. He was the first President from the International Region in Progressive’s 60 year history.
Today as we mourn, we remember and celebrate a great Shepherd, Pastor of the Historic Bethel Baptist Church in Nassau, Bahamas, husband, father, family man, visionary leader, counselor and friend. We grieve not in despair but with hope that we shall meet again.
On behalf of Convention Leadership, our 1st Vice President, Reverend David Peoples and Lady Margaret Peoples, 2nd Vice, Dr. Keith Byrd, Sr. and Lady Kimberly Byrd, General Secretary, Dr. A. Wayne Johnson, Dr. Ralph Canty, 9th President/Special Counsel and Lady Toye Jane Canty, we extend heartfelt condolences to the family and ask that you pray for his wife, Mrs. Sharon Stewart, their children, Timothy, Michael, and Gardner Calvin, the Bethel Baptist Church family and the entire PNBC Convention.
