Metro Church Planting
Nashville Baptist Church
by Bob Larson
On Thursday evening, January 23, 2020,
at 7:00 PM, area pastors, guests, and
members of Nashville Baptist Church
gathered at 865 Conference Drive in
Goodlettsville, Tennessee, to witness the
chartering and organizing of Nashville
Baptist Church. Richard Jacob and his
family, who are part of the BIMI Reseeding America Ministry, started this church in
September 2019. They were sent out of Temple Baptist Church in Powell, Tennessee,
to plant the church.
It was an historic and encouraging evening for the church and those in attendance.
Motions were made to charter the church and to officially call Missionary Church
Planter Richard Jacob as the pastor of the new church. The congregational singing
was spirited and the Jacob family provided special music. Several pastors spoke
about the importance of the Church Covenant, the Articles of Faith, and the Church
Constitution. A charge to the new pastor was followed by a closing message and the
signing of the Church Charter by those who have felt led of the Lord to join the new
church. We are thankful for the Jacob family and their desire to go to a major metropolitan city.
Nashville, Tennessee, is experiencing tremendous growth and many need to be reached
with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Please pray for them as they now take the next steps
in establishing a New Testament Baptist Church on their metropolitan mission field.
