Dr. Bill Tolbert, Sr. Pastor

Bio coming soon.


Mrs. Shawn Tolbert, Pastor's Wife

Ms. Shawn is a also Founding Member, helping to start this church in her living room with our Pastor.  Born in Nuremberg, Germany, raised in Augusta from the age of 6 weeks old, Shawn came to know the Lord at a young age.  Her family did not attend church so she would go with a favorite uncle or a neighbor as a child.  As a teen and young adult, however, Shawn lost her way for a very long time.  She praises God that even though she turned my back on Him, He never left her for a second.  When Shawn found her way back to Christ, she started attending church, working in the nursery; eventually working up to teaching youth in Sunday School.  Shawn now serves as our Adult Sunday School teacher as well as Bible Study mediator.

Ms. Shirley Jones, Secretary/Treasurer

As one of the Founding Members of Three Nails Gospel Church, Ms. Shirley has watched it grow from the living room of Pastor Bill's – to where we are now.   Her role at TNGC has been as Secretary-Treasurer; Sunday School Teacher; Deaconess; Church Board Member; and Building Board Member.  Born in a very small town in South Carolina – her father re-entered the military when she was 11 years old.  Since that time, she has traveled to many states and countries.  Currently Ms. Shirley is in process of moving  to Charlotte, NC, and will be passing these “hats” to other members of the church.  She says "What a joy it has been to serve Three Nails Gospel Church, but mostly, what a joy to serve my Heavenly Father.  I have seen many changes over the years since we have been established – and through all these years, God have provided everything we need".  Ms. Shirley's companion is Chopper the cat – he runs her home!  The greatest happiness she has, is knowing that Christ lives within her.
