Pastor Kelly McInerney, the founder and pastor of Bible Baptist Church, announced on Sunday, January 8th, that the Lord had called him to assume the pastorate of Bible Baptist Church in Savannah, Georgia. He will continue pastoring here in Wilmington until the summer, and will also begin pastoring the congregation in Savannah beginning in March. During this transition time, Pastor Joshua Dixon will be filling the pulpit when Pastor McInerney is away. The church voted unanimously, February 12th, for Joshua Dixon to succeed Pastor McInerney as Senior Pastor this summer. Pastor Dixon has been on staff at BBC for over 16 years, and has served as youth pastor, assistant pastor, and was appointed associate pastor in 2010.
Pastor and Theresa have led the church from its first day through 22 years of blessed ministry. It is a bittersweet time for our congregation, but we have confidence and peace in the Lord’s will and direction. Please pray for the McInerney and the Dixon families throughout this transition period. You can read more about Josh and his family in his staff profile.
