Elder Sean Calhoun, Sr., is the pastor of Greater Somerville Church Of God In Christ in the city of Somerville, TN where he was appointed in February 2013. Prior to pastoring Greater Somerville, he was a faithful member of Greater Community Temple in Memphis, TN for 14 years where he served in several capacities: Co-Coordinator of Hospital/Visitation Care, Coordinator of Prison Ministry, Dean of the College of Elders & Ministers, and is a national Adjutant for the Churches of God in Christ.

He is also very active in the community, speaking at middle and high school ceremonies and career days. He also works diligently in the penal system and even created an 8-week program for inmates called, “Real Talk Men’s Advancement Class” which encourages men to become better husbands, fathers and productive members of society upon their release.

In 2013, Elder Calhoun received the “Man of the Year“ award for his outstanding service at Greater Community Temple, and in October 2014 he was the recipient of the “Pastor of the Year” award for the TN Central Jurisdiction. He is currently the Chairman of the TN Central Pastors & Elder’s Council, a member of the TN Central Ordination Board, and is the national Regional Chairman of Pastors & Elder’s Council for TN, MS, and AR.

Elder Calhoun is a true servant and a blessing to the body of Christ, one who believes that honoring God means honoring the leaders He has placed over you. Even with his hectic schedule and his new elevation as pastor, he continues to serve his leader, Bishop Brandon B. Porter.

Pastor Calhoun is a successful business owner, a devoted husband to La’Kesha Ford Calhoun and is the proud father of three adult children, one daughter-in-love, and one grandson.
