Pastor Wallace McAbee was born in the late 1950’s to parents completing their education at Auburn University. The family added two more sons to make of home of three boys growing up playing ball, fishing, hunting, camping, scouting and especially active in local churches. The family’s move to Miami, Florida was a major spiritual marker for Wallace as God clarified what genuine discipleship was all about through the ministry of their church, Perrine Baptist. Early in his college years, Wallace was surprised to clearly sense God calling him into full-time vocational ministry. God’s call leads Wallace to prepare for ministry by pursuing the education necessary to prepare for service in a local church. He holds earned degrees from Auburn University, Southwestern Baptist and Southern Baptist Theological Seminaries. Since his call to ministry, Wallace has served as the pastor of churches in Texas, Alabama and Georgia. Wallace has been the pastor of Sharpsburg Baptist since June 2008. He has participated in and has lead mission trips to Alaska, Arizona, Ukraine and Kentucky. He is passionate about helping people grow like Christ, think and act biblically and carry out the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.
Wallace and his wife Nancy make their home in nearby Fayetteville. Nancy is a mortgage loan officer assistant and enjoys serving in their local church. She is formerly Nancy Power of East Point, GA, graduating from Headland High School and Georgia State University. They have three sons, Justin, Nicholas and Zachary.
