Dr. David Hughes

Senior Pastor

Dr. David Hughes is in his tenth year of ministry to Christ and The Church. David’s formation is in thanks to many fine schools, employers, churches, and his family. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish at Furman University (2005), a Master of Divinity from Erskine Theological Seminary (2018) and is currently working on his Doctor of Ministry at McAfee School of Theology in Church Leadership and Administration with plans to complete the degree in 2023. Before accepting the call to ministry in 2011, David worked for six years for non-profits in Greenville, South Carolina and Patagonia, Chile. Previously, he served as the minister to students at First Baptist Church of Augusta (2018 – 2021) and Easley First Baptist Church (2011 – 2018). Recently, David accepted the call to be the next senior pastor of First Baptist Church Carrollton of Carrollton, Georgia where he will begin in January 2022. Married to the love of his life in 2006, David’s amazing wife of fifteen years is Rebecca who is a constant source of love, encouragement, and partnership in the ministry. The two of them welcomed their daughter Maggie in 2012 and now watch with amazement as their precious nine-year-old continues to grow and develop. David believes firmly that The Church is a place of invitation for all where lives can be transformed by The Gospel of Jesus Christ. His passion is to create vision and lead God’s people to express the love of Christ in the world.
