Ministry Teams

At First Baptist Church we believe that each of us is a minister. Much of the work of the church is carried out by our ministry teams. Each team has a team leader and is made up of volunteers, while still relating to a staff member.

If you would like to work as part of a ministry team, email or call the church office at [email protected] or 573.634.3603.
