We are currently in a period of pastoral transition. In this season, we are looking to the future and considering how the mission and ministry of First Baptist Church, Lumberton, will continue to grow and change. Here is what to expect during this transition:

Our Interim Pastor – Bo Prosser

As our interim pastor, Bo is present Sunday-Tuesday of each week. In addition to worship leadership, he is also working with our church staff, visiting, consulting with church leadership and committees, and helping us as we ready ourselves to welcome our next pastor. To learn more about Bo, click here.

Special thanks to our interim search committee for their work: Heather Walters (chair), Liz Lytch (vice chair), Alli Branch, Bruce Huggins, Helen Odom, Eddie Prevatte, and Kallie Watts.


Next Steps

Our pastor search team is beginning their work. This committee will prayerfully and intentionally search for our next pastor. Those serving on the pastor search committee are Christy Strickland (chair), Pattie Ramsaur (vice chair), Katie Davis, Jeff Frederick, James Gore, Glenda Taylor, and Chris Walters.

As part of the interim process, Dr. Bo is holding listening sessions during January to allow him to hear the perspectives of our congregation. To sign up for a listening session, click here. The data from these sessions will help Bo as he helps us move forward and help the pastor search team in their work as well.


Wednesday Nights

Our Family Night at Prayer time will be led by different individuals from our church family, who will share devotions and their faith stories.


Pastoral Needs

Our ministerial staff and deacons are working together to care for our congregation in this season of transition. If you have or know of a pastoral need, please call the church office: (910) 739-4336. Our deacon care teams are also available to offer assistance.
