Beloved Church:

It’s a rainy Wednesday, but I continue to celebrate the wonderful time I shared with our young adult community these past two Sundays in our listening sessions on Sunday, February 13th and 20th.  Their participation in both attendance and sharing was strong.  Our room was full and our conversation was deep!  It gave such great insight into the next steps this community is to take as we initiate our plans for the future.  As you read about them, I invite the entire church to continue to pray for this important ministry as we launch.  I also ask that you continue to share the word to other young adults in our community – There is something special happening at First Baptist Church Carrollton for our young adult community!  We want them to come and get involved!

It’s an exciting time in the life of our church.  I cannot wait to see what God will do with this age group specifically in this New Beginning.  Join me in continuing to pray for the young adult community and that our church serves them well in Jesus’s name!  

Grace and Peace,

Pastor David

Dr. David Hughes

Senior Pastor

Dr. David Hughes accepted the call to the senior pastor of First Baptist Church Carrollton in January 2022. 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 a Doctor of Ministry at McAfee School of Theology in Church Leadership and Administration (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). Married to Rebecca in 2006, David’s amazing wife 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 daughter 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.
