A member of Second Baptist Church for 16 Years, Pastor Lambert heads the Outreach and Services Department and the Music & Performing Arts Department. He has been intensely involved in ministry since the age of 8 and has a God-given gift to understand and interpret God's word. He also teaches leadership concepts for excellency in kingdom success.

He loves people, laughter, and has a genuine heart for serving.
As head of the Children’s Department, Pastor Jarvis Carrigan has a mission: To nurture children into a loving, serving relationship with God. Having served at Second Baptist for 10 years, he encourages the little ones at every encounter with I Timothy 4:12 - Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. Believing God for one saved all saved, through the children, Pastor Carrigan’s goal is salvation for the entire family.
A former pastor of a church with a love for people and passion for helping others, Pastor Darryl Wilkins has served as Pastor of Congregational Care since 2017. He acknowledges a God-calling to the position that shepherds people in both the highs and lows of their lives. He sees it as an honor and duty to represent Christ, Second Baptist Church, and Pastor Kelly as he ministers to and takes care of the needs of members.
