Our Pastor

Pastor

 

Reverend Herman Washington is Shepherd, Sheep, Servant, Leader & Pastor of the Covenant Community at Shiloh Baptist Church, Rockville Centre, New York, where he has served faithfully since 1990.

It was under the watchful eye of his father, the later Reverend Julius Mosley, and Pastor of St. Stephen’s Baptist Church, in Philadelphia, PA., that Pastor Washington learned early on how to relate to the Body of Christ, gave his life to Him, and made a commitment to serve Him.

Now, having served in Ministry for more than 30 years, eight years as Pastor of Hopewell Baptist Church, Pennsgrove, NJ; and 25 as imminent Pastor at Shiloh, his commitment is still the same: to lead in holiness, humility and honesty; to preach the Word of God, and to submit to the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit.

With the unique, God-given ability to preach the Word of God, Pastor Washington has lectured and conducted seminars from Philadelphia, where he grew up, to as far as Lagos Nigeria. He continues to preach, and teach weekly Bible Studies at his church, and is frequently sought after to conduct lectures, seminars, revivals, and to preach in pulpits all across the country.

Pastor Washington has three beautiful children, Marissa Annette, Marlon Anthony and Marshall Andrew and in October 2014, he united in holy matrimony with the former Ms. Shonna Jones.   

Pastor Washington’s declaration is that to the best of his ability, he will preach and teach the Word of God, until the day that He can proclaim with the Apostle Paul,

“I have told you everything that God wants you to know.” Acts 20:27 (CEV)

Our Pastor’s Heart

As Servant-Leader of this Covenant Community, I commit myself  to lead this fellowship in holiness, humility and honesty.  To the best of my ability, I will preach and teach the Word of God, until the day that I am able to proclaim with the Apostle Paul that “I have told you everything God wants you to know”.  (Acts 20:27 CEV) I commit myself to the Ministry of the Holy Spirit, both in me and in our midst.”

As He provides strength and direction, I will obey Him in private and in public.  And in those moments of disobedience, I will run to the blood of Jesus Christ, our Lord, for forgiveness and cleansing. It is still my desire to be the best for God that I can be.  And to see to it that we, as a Covenant Community, present our bodies a living sacrifice to our God.  (Romans 12:1)
