Upcoming Mission Opportunities

Sustainable Liberia Prayer Campaign

A truck was donated to Sustainable Liberia to transport surplus produce to market. A prayer campaign is underway to ‘stuff the truck’ with notes of prayer and encouragement to be sent to Liberia. Please bring your notes to the office by May 26th.

Baby Bottle Boomerang

Help us support the Pregnancy Resource Center by participating in Baby Bottle Boomerang. PRC provides health and support services to expecting mothers in our community. Grab a baby bottle from outside the sanctuary and fill it up with change or cash.

Honduras VBS Mission Trip

Pray for the team heading to Honduras for a week to partner with Mission on the Move in late June. During the trip, they will lead a community-wide Vacation Bible School, a VBS at the Mission on the Move education center, and multiple Vacation Bible Schools in the public schools.

Past Mission Events

Love Your Neighbor Day

Sixty individuals of all ages came together to share God’s love with our community through a morning of service. We partnered with West Georgia Domestic Violence Shelter, Open Hands, Impact West GA, CASA, and Keep Carroll Beautiful to sort and pack items, paint transitional apartment units, clean up litter, visit our most senior members, and more.

Honduras Construction Mission Trip

As part of our ongoing partnership with Mission on the Move (MOM) Honduras, First Baptist Church Carrollton sent a team of eight with a primary objective to repaint one of the three homes at the Oaks of Righteousness, MOM’s family-styled children’s homes. They were also able to spend time with the children and visit a local nursing home.

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.
