JEFF SMITH
SENIOR PASTOR

Hi, my name is Jeff Smith and I serve as the pastor of Mills Chapel Baptist church. Growing up our family very seldom attended church but after attending a morning revival service, I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Not being active in church led to a lack of growth in spiritual understanding. Through my high school years, I didn’t think much about the Lord and as a result found myself living in sin. After marrying at 19 to Kelley...  <click to continue reading

ELIZABETH WEST
WOMEN'S
MINISTRY DIRECTOR

My name is Elizabeth West. I have the blessing of serving here at Mills Chapel as the Women’s Ministry Director. I accepted Jesus at the age of 13. I attended Word of Life Bible Institute and graduated in 2014. In 2017, I completed my Bachelors of Science in Human Relations at Point University. I am now in school for my Masters of Arts in Professional Counseling. I love to sing, read, spend time with my family and friends, and spend time with Jesus. My biggest desire in life is to know God and make Him known.

ROBERT BELTON
YOUTH
MINISTRY DIRECTOR

I serve as our Youth Group Director here at MCBC. I have a passion to serve God’s people that is expressed by the numerous roles I have held in ministry ranging from Church Drama’s, to Youth Leader, to Finance Team over the past 25 years.  With an understated demeanor and a laid-back personality, I believe I am being used to challenge young people to experience God.  When students experience God for themselves, their faith grows and they are drawn into the love of God.  Once God has their heart they will live out the biblical principle of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20).

CHILDREN'S
MINISTRY DIRECTOR
