Fellowship Bible Church

Lead Pastor



Why I Love This Opportunity

Keith Twigg

Senior Associate

Fellowship Bible Church in Batesville, AR, is built around loving, serving & reaching their community. With a facility nestled right in the middle of their downtown, this church is woven into the fabric of the lives of the people around them. This church truly feels like family, and the right pastor & family will plant deep roots and flourish here for years to come!

About This Organization

In April 2000, a small group of people in Batesville began to feel God’s calling for an interdenominational need not being met in the community, that a different type of church leadership and structure might meet the need, and that a contemporary informal style of worship might reach unchurched people. A small group of people began meeting in a few homes to pray and seek the will of the Lord. As the group grew over the next eight years, different facilities were used until the current facility was purchased and renovated in 2008. The building is located in downtown Batesville, centrally located in the community.

The congregation is supported with 8-10 small groups to provide a place for biblical study and community. A vibrant children and youth ministry reaches the next generation of believers. The church focuses on reaching the community through multiple outreach opportunities.
