Pastor Search

On February 11, 2018, I announced to the church family that I felt the Lord‘s leading to transition into retirement. Over the past 35 years, it has been my joy and privilege to serve as your pastor. I desire to finish strong and enter retirement with the confidence that Peninsula Baptist Church is powerfully positioned to reach this generation for Christ. The task is great, but our God is greater. 


Three years ago, we believed the Lord led us to begin the Building a Generation campaign to prepare Peninsula to send a generation of believers into the world. God continues to honor our faithfulness to Him and our faithfulness to the vision He has placed on our hearts. We have established a firm foundation for the future ministry of Peninsula Baptist Church.
