Meet our Pastors

Pr. Shawn and Pr. Carrie McDowell are both ordained ministers with the Assembly of God.  They received their degrees in Theology from Life Christian University in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Shawn and Carrie are passionate about getting the ministry off the platform and into the people’s hands.  Their desire is to have every person experience God in a real and tangible way and to fulfill their God-given purpose as part of the body of Christ.

Associate Pastor AJ Winters and his wife Grace joined the Smithfield AOG team in August of 2018. Together they lead our youth program: Next Chapter Youth Ministries. Pr. AJ is also the head of of our worship ministries, social networking, and design teams as well.

He previously assisted with the Acts 29 Next Chapter Youth Ministries and worked with the Royal Rangers.  He and his wife Erin have a heart for the mission field and will eventually do long term mission work in Armenia.  Joe currently homeschools his five children.  He graduated from Regent University with a BS in business and a minor in Biblical Studies.
