Rev. Dr. Sean White

Rev. Dr. Sean White has served as Pastor with Eastminster Church since 2009. Prior to his call to Eastminster, Sean served as Associate Pastor with Fountain City Presbyterian, and as Chaplain with St. Mary’s Residential Hospice.

Sean and his wife, Tiffany, have been married since 1996. They are graduates of Carson Newman University and began dating while Tiffany, a registered nurse, cared for Sean’s mother during her bout with cancer.

Sean and Tiffany have two children, Natalie and Caleb.

At the age of 11, Sean was saved in an old fashioned revival meeting and recounts his years in the youth group as the most formative season in his life. To this day, the Lord continues to build upon that foundation.

Sean believes the local church is at the center of God’s redemptive plan (Ephesians 3:10-11), and the advance of the Kingdom of God depends upon her vibrant and enthusiastic witness.
