After Ten Years of Faithful Service, Kevin and Susan Denton Resign as Music Department Chairman and Choir Director

WENDELL, NC- After ten years of faithful service, the Chairman of the Music Department, Susan Denton announced that she will be resigning to focus more on her family. Mr. Kevin Denton who worked in the college music department on a part-time basis for the last nine years, directing the college choir and teaching some music classes, also announced his resignation to return his efforts to his full-time job as the Music Pastor of Faith Free Will Baptist Church in Goldsboro, NC.

“We are grateful for the time God has allowed us to be a part of the wonderful ministry of Southeastern Free Will Baptist College. This is the place where Susan and I met, and God changed our lives.  It was at Southeastern that God gave to us focus in ministry. Our prayer is that the excellent training ministry of Southeastern will continue until Jesus returns. Our love for the college will never change, but God has made it clear for us to invest our time and energy completely in our family and our music ministry at Faith Free Will Baptist Church. We thank the Board of Directors as well as President Marcum for allowing us the opportunity to minister at the college for the last nine and ten years,” Mr. Denton said.

President Marcum stated, “Brother Kevin and Mrs. Susan Denton are deeply loved and will be sorely missed at Southeastern. They not only taught our young people the right harmony and keys to music, but they also taught their students how to sing from and with their hearts.”

“It is difficult to see the Dentons leave Southeastern. Their connection to the students, commitment to the ministry, effectiveness in the classroom and heart for the ministry have made them a tremendous asset to our school. I know God will continue to use this talented and dedicated couple. We wish them all the best,” Dr. Danny Baer said.

The Dentons graduated from Southeastern in 1998 and 1999. They have two children. Meghan (14) and Miles (12) are following in their parent’s love of music. Meghan is already an accomplished pianist and Miles is a saxophonist.
