I have a Doctorate of Ministry Degree and was ordained for the ministry in 1980. Most children call me Pastor David and I will not tell you some of the other names I have been called. I was born and raised in Caroline and have served five churches as pastor. I am humbled by your call to serve as Interim Pastor of Round Oak. These are difficult days for all of us and I look forward to what God is going to do next. I covet your prayers as we journey together into the future building on the foundation that has been laid and trusting in the good Lord for guidance and strength. The greatest privilege of being a pastor is to share in the lives of people in the good times and hard times. Trying to stay connected during the era of “social distancing” is a challenge but please feel free to contact me.

Dr. David Upshaw | Interim Pastor
