Lay Leader

Interim Pastor Sherman Nobles


Pastor Sherman comes to Mountain View with a master's in Missiology (Cross-cultural communication of the Gospel) from Regent University in Virginia Beach. He has served as a lay leader in many fellowships and has served as a professor and academic dean at Tidewater Bible College also in Virginia Beach. He is an author of a book entitled, "God is a Divorce’ Too!".
He describes himself as a father of 4 children whom he loves very much, a grandfather of 2 grandchildren, 2 more grandchildren on the way, and 3 grandchildren with the Lord. He states “I love God and I love people. I enjoy family, friendships, fellowship, fishing, teaching, worship, prayer, hiking, playing cards and board games, and serving others. I'm a stable, steady, gentle, patient, caring, kind soul, fun, and faithful to a fault. I prefer a simple, almost minimalist, life. What you see is what you get.”
He has recently moved to Cleveland, TN, and is thankful for this opportunity to serve the good people of Mountain View UMC.
He states he has one true passion in life; and that is Jesus, the perfect revelation of who God is, knowing Him and making Him known!
