Rev. Dr. Allan L. Purtill, Jr..
704-948-7447 ext. 103
Allan began serving as the pastor at Hopewell in 2009. He received a BA in history in 1996 from Hampden-Sydney College. In 2000 he received his Masters of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary and was ordained in August of 2000. In May, 2017, Allan completed his Doctorate of Ministry program through Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA. During the Summer of 2017, Allan was granted a three-month sabbatical through the Lily Endowment Grant. While he considers Charlotte, NC, his hometown, Allan lived all over the United States growing up. Since seminary, he has served as associate pastor at Mount Pleasant Presbyterian Church in Mount Pleasant, SC, and as pastor at First Presbyterian Church in Americus, GA.

Allan's vision is to encourage the people of Hopewell Presbyterian Church as they seek to follow God's unfolding mission in Huntersville and the greater community. One of the things he enjoys most about Hopewell is the sense of community exhibited by the welcoming spirit and faithful commitment of the members and those who attend. He is inspired by the way they continue to cultivate the mission mindset that is their heritage. Favorite Bible verses include Jeremiah 29:7 and Philippians 2:12-13.

Allan's family includes his wife Jenny, children Syler and James, and Labrador retriever, Belle (oh, and how could he forget the cat--Snickers!). In his spare time, Allan enjoys playing classical guitar, spending time with his family and friends, paddle boarding, occasional jogging, and camping. When he is not reading for work, he usually will pick up a biography of a past-president.
