From Our Pastor

Welcome to the Hillcrest website! I am so thrilled to be a part of Hillcrest Baptist Church and that you decided to stop by and see what we’re about! As your pastor, I want to be sure to have clear communication with members and visitors. This page is dedicated to just that. Please check back often to hear from me or to get in touch with me. I look forward to hearing from you! Do check back often, as we will be adding new ways to worship, minister and motivate!

Ministry Leadership

Charlie Davis, Senior Pastor

Charlie began serving Hillcrest in March of 2020. He has served as a pastor in three previous congregations; his last pastorate in Louisville, KY was for 29 years. He is a graduate of Oakland City University with a BA in Biblical Studies and holds his Master’s from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary with a focus on Pastoral Ministry and Christian Education.

Charlie and his wife Mendy have been married for 38 years. They both grew up in Michigan and have continued to be life-long Michigan fans. They have 3 daughters; Abbey, Elizabeth and Emily, and one son, Andrew, with one grandson, William. When not pastoring, Charlie enjoys gathering with his family, spending time on the gulf, playing golf and watching the University of Michigan. Go blue!

Sunday School
God is at work through our Sunday School Classes. If you, for whatever reason, have not made the decision to ‘plug into’ a class, I want to urge you to make it a priority; you are needed and will be blessed!

It is exciting to work with our Sunday School Leaders (Dale Manning, Jason Blackburn, Jack Hickey, and Kathy Adkins).

Next Sunday School meeting for teachers and assistants is Sunday, May 19th at 8:30 am in Room # E206.

Newest Members
God has blessed us with the additions of several new families joining our Church family:

Gere Roberson Lottie Whitaker
John and Tammie Davis Luke Davis
Scotty Jarvis Jane Smith
Adam and Abbey Coombs Griffin and Sallie Metcalf
Smith and Lara Veal

God continues to bless the HALOS ministry; so many wonderful teachers, leaders, helpers and team members. This Sunday, May 5, marks the 10 year Anniversary of it’s inception. We are blessed to have David Ring as our guest speaker and a wonderful luncheon to follow the morning worship hour.

First Choice
Don’t forget to pick-up, fill-up, and return a baby bottle with loose change on Mother’s Day
(Sunday, May 12). All funds go to support the ministry of First Choice (an alternative pregnancy center and ministry to women).

If you haven’t already signed up, there are still opportunities for you to serve as we strive to share God’s Word with younger children and their families. Sign-Ups are in the Welcome Center.

If you have never tried to read and study the book of Romans, I want to personally extend an invitation to join with us on Wednesday evenings at 6:15 pm in the Worship area. Bring your bible and ‘dig-in’ with us as we work through Paul’s most in-depth theological treatise of the gospel.

1st Corinthians
Finally, it has been both a challenge and blessing to preach through the book of 1st Corinthians. I trust God is working in us as we continue this journey together.
