Reverend Albert Gallmon, Jr.

The Reverend Albert Gallmon, Jr. is the Interim Senior Pastor of Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church (FMBC) in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Prior to his return to Minneapolis, Reverend Gallmon served as the Senior Pastor of Peace Progressive Missionary Baptist Church in Tampa, Florida. He was also an Adjunct Professor of Mathematics at Hillsborough Community College in Tampa.

During his previous 12-year tenure as Senior Pastor of FMBC, Reverend Gallmon garnered several accomplishments which included the licensure and ordination of nine Associate Ministers to the Gospel Ministry; he ordained the first set of Deacons; and in 1999, Pastor Gallmon led the effort to purchase the current property at 3355 4th Street North, in Minneapolis. FMBC previously shared space with the Luther Memorial Lutheran Church; however, a May 11, 2003 celebratory march – led by Reverend Gallmon and church leadership and joined by the congregation – was held to declare worship in FMBC’s newly built sanctuary. Once established in the new location, Reverend Gallmon later guided the initiative to partner with the Minneapolis Council of Churches and the establishment of the Center for Families, which became official on December 31, 2004.

Reverend Gallmon immersed himself in the Twin Cities community. He served on numerous boards including the Minnesota Council of Churches; the StairStep Foundation; the Council on Crime and Justice; and the Robins, Kaplan, Miller and Ciresi Foundation for Education, Public Health and Social Justice. His civic engagement included a three-year term (2000 to 2003) on the Minneapolis Public Schools Board of Education; Minnesota State Senate Chaplain (2002-2004); and as President of the Minneapolis Chapter of the NAACP. Reverend Gallmon also served as an Adjunct Professor at United Theological Seminary in New Brighton.

Reverend Gallmon, who has a bachelor’s degree in Political Science with a minor in Mathematics from St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York, also has a Master of Divinity from the Washington, D.C.-based Howard University School of Divinity.

Reverend Gallmon is married to Mrs. Wilma L. Gallmon and they have two children, Albert and JoAnna. Pastor and Sister Gallmon said they are thrilled to return home to Minneapolis and that through Christ, the best is yet to come!
