According to the black interest blog, Obnoxious Television, Reginald Wayne Sharpe, Jr., will be stepping down as pastor of House of Hope Church in Macon, GA, on Sunday, May 27, 2018.
House of Hope Macon is a campus church of House of Hope Atlanta (Greater Travelers Rest Baptist Church), pastored by E. Dewey Smith. Pastor Sharpe is a longtime member of HOH Atlanta and has been referred to as Pastor Smith’s “son” in the ministry.
Sharpe is a 2013 graduate of Morehouse College and a 2016 graduate of Vanderbilt Divinity School (with a Master of Theology degree).
His departure from House of Hope Macon has not been officially announced. The Obnoxious Television report indicates that it stems from a Pastor Sharpe’s desire “to grow and take on other opportunities, which did not seem to be possible in Macon.”
The site also says Pastor E. Dewey Smith may already have a successor to Sharpe — Pastor James Earl Cray of Empact Church in Hazelton, GA.
