We believe in the importance of EQUIPPING our members and sending them out as missionaries and church planters.

Sent Missionaries

Josh Cornett was one of our pastors at First Baptist Covington when he and his family were called to the mission field in Columbia.

Josh, his wife, Jaclyn, and their five children were commissioned by the International Mission Board to be sent to Columbia. They are currently in language school and preparing for their move to Columbia.
