Kathleen, GA - Churches must also stay relevant to the times while developing a community with high biblical literacy. The Piney Grove Missionary Baptist Church is one such church that has stood its ground and served God for over 130 years. Over the decades, the church has actively participated in the local community in spreading the message of God and making socially conscious efforts. Standing tall at the corner of Old Perry Road, Woodard Road, and Solomon Road, the church is currently led by the Holy Spirit in the hands of its 22nd pastor, Rev. Dr. Lonnie Slater.
The well-known Missionary Baptist Church has multiple ministries focused on different goals, developments, and community services. It has Brotherhood, Music, Platinum Praisers, and Youth Zone ministries. The Youth Zone ministry is quite active and is constantly working to create a new generation of disciples of Christ. The church has a Youth Department that regularly runs various activities. “Some of our most profound youth development activities include Bible Study, Outreach Activities, Fellowship, Outing and Adventures, and Praise and Worship,” exclaimed the church’s representative.
A member of the Baptist Convention of Georgia, the Piney Grove Missionary Baptist Church allows patrons to reserve their seats and book prayers online. The church’s representative elaborated on these services, “We have now made it possible for all the disciples of Christ to reserve seats online. Guests are requested to send us their details and we will reach back to confirm availability.”
“Our guests can also place their prayer requests online from our website. All you have to do is to fill out the form and we will add your request to the prayer list,” the representative further added. The church also accepts online donations to support its ministries and activities.
Rev. Dr. Lonnie Slater has been the pastor of this Missionary Baptist Association church since 2015. Since his arrival, the church has been blessed with greater growth and improvements. Rev. Slater began his journey of preaching the Gospel of Jesus the Christ in 1991 at the United Baptist Church in Okinawa, Japan. He has served in different positions and has ministered in many other countries including Germany and Turkey, and in many places within the United States.
Rev. Slater has a Doctorate of Ministry in Biblical Preaching from the coveted Clamp Divinity School of Anderson University, Anderson, SC. “He has been the driving force in making our church more relevant to the current times,” the representative claimed.
The Piney Grove Missionary Baptist Church is affiliated with The General Missionary Baptist Convention of Georgia and The Middle Georgia Orthodox Missionary Baptist Association. It is also part of the Sixth District of Georgia and The National Baptist Association of America. Rev. Slater also holds the positions of the President of the Minister’s Division at the Sixth District of the General Missionary Baptist Convention of Georgia and the President of the Middle Georgia orthodox Missionary Baptist Association Congress of Christian Education.
