Our Pastor

Pastor John Jordan & wife, Kathy

Pastor Jordan came to First Baptist Church in Laurel on February 3, 2002 from Alabama where he had served as a Youth Director as a layman for about 13 years. In the fall of 1994 he surrendered his life to full time ministry. In February 1995, his home church voted to call him to serve on the church staff of the God's Way Baptist Church in Troy Alabama as the Assistant Pastor to Pastor J. Craig Holmes. Pastor Jordan served there in full time ministry for almost 7 years.

He has been involved in youth ministry, bus ministry, Sunday school ministry, soul winning and visitation ministry, as well as other areas of day to day ministry in the local church. He also has a Bachelors Degree in Biblical Studies.

Pastor Jordan has a heart for people of all ages and of all walks of life. His desire is to see lost souls come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and to see Christians grow in their Christian faith. 

The church is preparing to construct new facilities for its growing ministry on a beautiful 18 acre tract of land that the church has purchased.
