Leland Campus Pastor
Don is a true sandlapper as he was born in Columbia, grew up in Spartanburg, and attended College of Charleston, in South Carolina. Although trusting in Christ at a young age, God redirected his future from a life-long dream of becoming an Orthodontist, to serve Christ vocationally during his sophomore year in college.
He met his future wife, Buffy, while attending college and they married while attending seminary in North Carolina on May 25th, 1996.
After a decade of growing to a family of five (Maggie, Lacie, & Fischer) and church planting in Southeast Wake County, God rearranged his family’s life by relocating to Wilmington in 2009 into a church role for community engagement and local missions.
Don joined the staff of PC3 in 2015 and brings with him a passion of serving his community, connecting others, and challenging others to be everyday missionaries.
Last but not least, Don has been nicknamed by his local mountain biking club as the “Trail Mayor” because he’s known for cranking his mouth more than his pedals while riding the dirt trails with his family and friends.Contact Don
