Pastor Search Committee Update

The Pastor Search Committee has dedicated much time, energy and prayer to bringing a new pastor before the church to call. The Pastor Search Committee, Deacons and Ministerial staff are excited to recommend David Hughes.

Pastor Hughes is currently the Minister to Students at First Baptist Church Augusta. He has a passion for people, and he looks forward to sharing his passion with our church and community. He will preach to our congregation on November 14, and a vote will be taken on the call following worship.

David and his wife, Rebecca, have been married for 15 years and have a 4th grade daughter, Maggie. David is fluent in Spanish, and Rebecca is an accomplished Soprano. They have used their talents doing mission work in Chile. David is working towards his Doctor of Ministry in Church Leadership and Administration. To view Pastor Hughes’ full resume, please visit DAVID JENNINGS HUGHES. And, visit FBC Augusta to watch Pastor Hughes preach this past Sunday.

The Pastor Search Committee, including Mark Albertus, Stacy Lawler, David Brooks, Carmen Dill, Jim Hughes, Patti Brown-Traylor, Steve McLendon, Tommy Cox, Melina Douthit and Carl Brack would especially like to thank our chair, Curt Giebeig for his tireless dedication to this process of finding our new pastor.

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.
