About Us

Gethsemane Baptist Church was founded in 1956 at its present location on the west side of Greenville, South Carolina.  Since that time, many homes have been built in our neighborhood, an area that many call “Mustang Village.”

Through the years, several pastors have led the congregation at Gethsemane Baptist Church.  The present pastor, Ron Gatlin, has been Gethsemane’s pastor since February, 1998.  Pastor Gatlin is a 1980 graduate of Temple Baptist Theological Seminary in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  He graduated from the Seminary with an M. Div. degree.  He has served churches in New York, Massachusetts, and South Carolina.  He is married with three daughters, one of which is in heaven.  He is also a teacher at Tabernacle Baptist College, located in Greenville, SC.
