The Blessing of Leadership
God has always chosen to lead His people through the ministry of godly individuals. At Second Baptist, we are thankful for the godly leadership God has provided for us, both in the past, and in the present.
Our leadership structure is that of Pastor/Deacons. These men of God serve by providing direction, teaching, and vision for the congregation.
In March of 2016, the Lord led Second Baptist to call Mark Foster to be our Pastor. Pastor Foster has served for over ten years as the senior Pastor of a Baptist Church in North Carolina. As a New England native, Pastor Foster understands the culture and the people of Maine. We are excited about the future that God has for us together here at Second Baptist.
Over the years, dozens of men have served in the office of Deacon here at Second Baptist. Currently, we are blessed to have five godly men who assist the Pastor. These men are active, not only in providing leadership and direction, but also in serving in many of the ministries of our church; such as preaching, teaching Sunday school, and visitation. Currently our deacons are:
- Leon Murray
- Larry McCarthy
- Bill Darrah
- Fred Lehland
- Ben Cyr
