Welcome to

The new pastor of Second baptist church

Rev. Lawrence W. Rodgers

“It is with great excitement that I accept the call as the 24th pastor of the historic Second Baptist Church of Detroit. A congregation which has offered a prophetic witness for the challenges of the season since 1836 and a congregation which understands the need for both spirit formation and social formation. The gospel of Christ still has the power to save not only from personal transgression, but also social sin as well. In this ministry we will continue with the rich history of Second Baptist Church of Detroit by being a beacon of hope, liberation, and transformation,” says Pastor Rodgers.
