Mission Opportunities



V.I.P. (Very Important People) is a special needs ministry designed for children and adults. Special needs is defined as a child (or adult) suffering from any of a wide range of physical disabilities, medical conditions, intellectual difficulties, or emotional problems.

The goal of this ministry is to provide a spectrum of supports for exceptional children and adults as they learn about God, grow in their faith, and fellowship with other believers. We value supporting each person at his or her unique level. We also value helping each person to engage in FBC’s ministries as independently as possible. Be on the look out for an upcoming ‘Special Needs Ministry’ section on our website. Our ministry team has already gathered a lot of great ideas and look to minister to the families of Fayetteville.

One of the first events we have planned is a respite night. Respite literally means “a period of rest or relief.” Respite events provide parents a temporary relief from the responsibilities of caring for children with physical or intellectual disabilities. Respite is a gift of time. It is a church outreach activity that draws otherwise cautious families over the threshold and into the church because respite meets a valuable and practical need. As we begin this outreach, our first respite night will be open to First Baptist Church members and their immediate/extended families. We look forward to making this a community wide event in the near future!

FBC's first respite night will be held on Friday July 28th, 2017 from 6pm-9pm. Drop off will begin at 5:45 and you must pre-register by July 21st. We will have a parent fellowship at the Hub for parents who would like to stay on campus. The registration can be completed in the church office or online.

If you would like to connect someone with this ministry or would like to serve in the V.I.P. ministry please contact the First Baptist Church office, (931) 433-7187, and they will assist you with the process.
