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.

Day 15 (9/21)

In the book of Joshua, after the miraculous entry into the Promised Land and the even more miraculous victory at Jericho, things suddenly go terribly wrong. The Israelites are defeated at Ai, and thirty-six men lose their lives. It is soon discovered that the sin of one man, Achan, put the whole mission at risk. He stole and hid some things that he had no right to keep, and the whole nation paid for it. We all understand the temptation to hang on to things that the Lord tells us let go of. We all know the rationale we use for doing so: it’s no big deal, no one else knows, no one is being hurt, other people are doing it, other people are worse, etc. But here’s the challenge of the Achan story: what if it’s your sin that is holding back the flood of revival? What things would you be willing to surrender if it meant revival could flow through our church?

Day 16 (9/22)

When I was a teenager, our youth minister taught a lesson on “God’s Phone Number.” He said it was JER 333, referring to Jeremiah 33:3: “Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.” That lesson has stuck with me all these years. It really is the case that our God desires to hear and answer the cries of his people. Jeremiah was under arrest, persecuted and despised because he was speaking truth that no one wanted to hear. God’s people, the people Jeremiah loved, were lost in spiritual darkness. Things seemed hopeless. Then God speaks. He reveals “the rest of the story,” promising a time of redemption, restoration, and return to the promised land. You can bring God the cries of your heart today, cries for revival, cries for reconciliation, cries for help in a time of trouble. He WILL answer.

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!
