New Members:

              The New Members Ministry conducts a comprehensive orientation program to introduce all new members joining Second Baptist Baptist Church to church principles, practices, member responsibilities and auxiliaries and ministries of the church. We strive to ensure all new members are assimilated into the life and activities of the church.


              The ministry of ushering is a crucial part of worship because it is one of the most visible ministries in the church. In Christ, you have received God’s unconditional love, and, in Christ, you are called to extend that same unconditional love to others. Although an usher’s love is no stronger than the love found in the whole congregation of the body of Christ, nevertheless the usher performs a major role in ensuring that people see and experience that love.

Welcome Ministry:

              Second Baptist Church is about people rather than programs, and our ministries aim to train, care for, and serve the people within the fellowship. We welcome you to our services and the many ministries of this church body

Healthcare Ministries:
