Pastor Robert N. Fortson
Senior Pastor and Chief Executive Officer
of Greater Bethlehem Temple Church
"From the moment he first entered the doors, he knew his life would never be the same..."
Robert N. Fortson, Sr. is a native of Egypt, Mississippi, a small town in the northeastern part of the state. He is a graduate of Jackson State University of Jackson, Mississippi with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. While attending Jackson State in 1975, he was invited by a fellow student to visit Greater Bethlehem Temple Church (GBTC) located two blocks from the university. From the moment he first entered the doors, he knew his life would never be the same, and he became a faithful member of the church until today. He credits much of his spiritual growth to the leadership of his late pastor, Bishop Phillip Coleman, Sr.
Pastor Fortson is the Senior Pastor and Chief Executive Officer of Greater Bethlehem Temple Church, a 1500-member congregation committed to the vision of building on a righteous foundation. He can be seen weekly on his television broadcast, “Victorious Living with Pastor Robert Fortson,” airing on local Fox Network affiliate, MY-35.
Pastor Fortson’s messages of encouragement can also be heard on weekly radio broadcasts airing on eight stations throughout the southeastern United States. His anointed and uplifting messages can also be viewed through live-streaming of church services. For the times and locations of broadcasts and services, please visit the church’s website, www.GBTchurch.org.
Pastor Fortson has now added the title “published author” to his other accomplishments. He wants to continue to spread the good news of Jesus Christ through his books.
Pastor Fortson seeks to positively impact the lives of others by preaching and teaching messages to people who hope to achieve victorious living through seeking and following God's Word.
