About Our Pastor

Dr. Mike Harder

Senior Pastor, First Baptist Spartanburg

On May 21, 2023, our church unanimously affirmed Dr. Mike Harder as Senior Pastor. As Pastor Mike honors his remaining ministry commitments in Nashville, the Harder family is set to begin their ministry with us in late summer 2023 (specific dates will be announced once they are determined). Please continue to pray for the Harders as they prepare to move from Nashville and put their roots down in Spartanburg!

Remember to check our weekly E-blast for updates from the Harders every Thursday.

"I am honored to follow in the footsteps of Dr. Walker and Dr. Wilton. We are blessed to be a part of the story God is telling at this church."

Watch the Celebration

After being blessed with three decades of faithful leadership, our church family is so thankful for the ministry of Dr. Don Wilton, Mrs. Karyn Wilton, and the Wilton family. If you missed it, watch this powerful worship service and the challenge from Dr. Don upon his retirement.
