Convent Avenue Baptist Church


Although we are not a German Speaking Church, we have translators and "programs" in the German language. The church hosted several congregations from Germany last year including the Heidelburg Christian Church from Heidelberg under Pastor Moritz.

Convent Avenue Baptist Church was founded on February 4, 1942 by the late Dr. John W. Saunders, and it’s currently led by the Rev. Dr. Jesse T. Williams, Jr., Senior Pastor.  Convent’s Mission is to touch people with the word of God and to help all those who believe in Christ grow in their faith in God.

Convent Avenue Baptist Church consist of approxminately 100 different ministries and services including six musical (Spiritual, Contemporary and Gospel) choirs.  Services are held Sundays at 8:00am, 11:00am and (occasionally) 5:00pm.
