Lead Pastor

First Fairhope’s mission is summed up in: “First loved, love first”. It won’t take you long to discover this is truly a family rich in the relationships that matter most. Growing together, we worship, we serve, we laugh, we cry, we learn, and we reach out to our community and world with ministry that meets them at the center of their need.

Our doors are open. Our hearts are open too. If you’ve been thinking, searching, and hoping for a place to belong, a place to be loved, a place to call “home”, then we invite you to come join us at First Fairhope.

What’s coming up?


To launch into our God Chasers series, we will spend time – 21 days – in prayer. You’ll see a post each day on our social media outlets where Pastor has picked a point from one of the psalms each day. The psalm is noted on the graphic. There will be ways to engage each day as well. So jump in and help spread the word through your newsfeed, but more importantly PRAY consistently. Be ready to share with those watching you engage socially, how they, too, can find experience real HOPE through chasing after Him every day. If you are not on social media, attached is the list of each day’s graphic content: 21 Days of Prayer Posts

Membership Process

We need each other…

When the church started 2000 years ago, they didn’t have a building—they had each other! The Bible paints a beautiful picture of people worshipping, praying together, taking care of each other, and doing life together.  They were more than acquaintances. They were family! A commitment to each other is how the church started, and it’s still that way today! If we want to experience real life, we’ve got to do life together. When you become a member of First Fairhope, you’re joining a family where you take care of your brothers and sisters, and they take care of you!
