The Help Ministries of Second Baptist Church ensure the comfort, hospitality, warmth, and welcoming of our corporate operations.




Adult/Youth Usher Board

The Combined Usher board is committed to making all feel welcomed and valued when they enter our church. Additionally, it is their goal to enhance the worship experience of each congregant by maintaining an environment free from interruptions, while striving to be hospitable in every manner to all worshipers.

Audio/Video Ministry

The Audio/Video ministry was created to produce quality audio and video for each worship service held at the church; whereby people will be blessed and encouraged. CDs/DVDs are available for purchase immediately after service in the church's bookstore.

Healing Hands Ministry

The Healing Hands Ministry is a group of Christian ladies who provide medical and First Aid assistance during worship services seeking the guidance of the spirit of God as they minister.

Hospitality Ministry

The Hospitality Ministry assists the usher board with welcoming worshipers at all worship services. In addition this ministry is in charge of providing refreshments for the church body on special occasions.

Marriage Enrichment Ministry

The Marriage Enrichment Ministry provides opportunities for married couples to fellowship as a group while rising in strength, faith, hope, and love concerning God's plan for marriage. As we enrich marriages, we strengthen families, as we strengthen families; we change lives that change communities.

Men's Ministry

The Men's Ministry is committed to promoting brotherhood through fellowship, worship, prayer, and meditation. It is their goal to foster a relationship spiritually, physically, and socially with their brothers, elevating each other through encouragement, seeking God first.

SAFe (Singles) Ministry

The Second Baptist Church Single Adult Fellowship (SAFe) Ministry provides a forum for Christian singles to focus on their place in God's divine plan and form bonds that will strengthen and keep them throughout their walk with Christ. This is accomplished through "safe" sharing and discussions of numerous issues facing singles.
