On Sunday, June 19, Rev. Bart McNiel will begin his tenure as the Associate Pastor at Smoke Rise Baptist Church. Although Bart will have the same title as his predecessor Ernie Forrester, he will have a different role. Along with Pastoral Care responsibilities for our members, homebound members, and those in the hospital, Bart will help us to better minister to visitors and new members, promote collaboration in our ministry staff, and foster a culture of generosity in our congregation.
We are also excited to welcome Bart’s wife, Stacey, and his two girls Mattie (8) and Evie (6) into our church community. In the coming weeks, please take time to introduce yourself to this delightful family and welcome them to Smoke Rise!
