GIVING UPDATE from 9/26/21


The Pastor Search Committee has been working very hard to narrow down the list of fantastic candidates. They are currently conducting second interviews. By the end of next week, they will have narrowed the list down to one candidate. A date will be set for that person to preach at First Baptist and meet our congregation. Please continue to pray for the Pastor Search Committee. They still have a lot of work to do and hard decisions to make as they prayerfully consider which candidate God is calling to be the next senior pastor of FBC. 

September 26th was World Hunger Day. Please consider giving a special monetary gift throughout the month of October. This gift will be used to pay for the food that we package in January for Rise Against Hunger. The food that is packaged is sent all over the world to impoverished countries to help feed the hungry. Instructions on how to donate will be in next week’s Messenger.

Our Sanctuary Choir has begun work on Christmas music. It’s a great time to join or rejoin choir! If you cannot commit to full rehearsals and want to do Christmas music only, we will do that early in the rehearsal, so you can slip out after that segment. Hope to see you in the choir room Wednesday night at 7:00!

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.
