One of Charlotte's best-known pastors resigns

Dr. Dan Burrell, who has served as senior pastor at Northside Baptist Church for the past seven years, announced his resignation from the post on June 3. His resignation is effective September 1.

Neither Burrell nor the church has issued a public statement about the resignation, though Burrell wrote on his popular blog, “For seven-and-a-half years, it has been my pleasure to lead this historic ministry that is filled with wonderful and loving people. But through a variety of circumstances, I have reached a conclusion that it is time for me to step away from the Senior Pastorate at Northside.”

Burrell added, “There have been absolutely no allegations or disputes involving ethics, morality, theology, philosophy or any such matter.”

Dan L. Burrell is a native of Moberly, Mo. Before taking over as senior pastor at Northside he served a church in West Palm Beach, Fla. He holds a doctorate in educational administration and has been active in educational endeavors as well as pastoral activities. He was instrumental in the formation and leadership of the Greater Charlotte Association of Christian Schools. He has served as an adjunct professor for Luther Rice Seminary, Atlantic Coast Baptist Bible College, Boston Baptist College and Liberty University. He has served on the Board of Directors for Piedmont Baptist College, Appalachian Bible College, Boston Baptist College and Tennessee Temple University.
