Ministries Jail/Prison Ministry Matthew 25:36 and context declare the value of visiting those behind bars. Bro. Robert Lunsford, Assistant Chaplain of the Santa Rosa County Interfaith Jail Ministry, has led our church in this outreach for more than a decade, assisted by Bro. Dana Stone. Junior Church Mark 10:14-15, Proverbs 22:6, and other passages confirm the vital importance of teaching Bible truths to children while they are young and pliable. Mrs. Ann O'Connor, Bro. Caleb Kennedy, and Bro. Matt Rowan, along with older young people of the church, faithfully help Assistant Pastor Chris Hively each week in this effort. Ladies of Faith Each week, a group of our ladies meet to read aloud the names of each of the missionaries and ministries supported by Faith Baptist Church and to pray for those missionaries. Birthday, anniversary and encouragement cards are also signed and mailed to the missionaries. Mrs. Cathy Kelley, assisted by Mrs. Ann Jones, leads this vital ministry. Any lady is welcome to join them. They meet on the 1st & 3rd Thursdays of the month at 4:00 p.m. and on the 2nd & 4th Thursdays they meet at 6:00 p.m. Men of Faith Every Saturday at 6:30 p.m., the men of FBC gather to share prayer requests, pray for each other, and get some encouragement from God's Word. Pastor David Rowan leads this weekly ministry and all men are invited to join them.
