Our Pastors


Dr. Joe W. Myers

Pastor Emeritus

"And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved." (Acts 2:47) The Foundation of the church is the Lord Jesus Christ. A local church is far more than brick, mortar, wood, and property. It is people who have been saved by God's grace..... Thus, this "Web Communicator" is both for and about the people who make up the Kerwin Baptist Church. It is our purpose and hope that it will help each of us to be better informed of daily activities and more aquainted with the people at Kerwin. This site will offer an abundant display of information for Kerwin's Congregation. Our Members' Directory, in the Members' Services, will allow you to associate names and faces with our people. It will also provide you with a list of addresses for your convenience, as well as other information about the families. My desire is that it may also serve as a reminder to pray for our leaders, members, and ministries. I want to thank you for your love, loyalty, and prayerful support through these many years. We pray and trust the dear Lord will allow us to continue to serve Him and you until His glorious return! Contact Pastor Joe
