Pastor Rusty Wolfrey, along with his family, was welcomed March 10 as the new pastor of Victory Baptist Church, Sylva.
Pastor Wolfrey had been the assistant pastor under Dr. Benny Bagwell and was serving as the interim pastor while the church searched for a pastor after the resignation of Dr. Bagwell in July 2012 due to health concerns.
Pastor Wolfrey was ordained into the gospel ministry September 2000 at Macedonia Baptist Church, Clayton, Ga. He received his theological training from Tabernacle Baptist Bible College and Mile Creek Baptist Bible College.
