Our History

Our History

former site of Manchester Baptist Church Manchester Baptist Church was organized in 1957 in the city of Richmond under the leadership of Charles Albert Morgan, Sr. He served as Pastor for approximately 17 years. Bob Barwick served as the second pastor for approximately 11 years.
Pastor Roger Jarrell Pastor Roger Jarrell served the church as the third pastor for thirteen years. Under his direction we have relocated from the City of Richmond to west Chesterfield County. He was known as a man of prayer and a fervent preacher of God’s Word.

“The Scripture in 1 Corinthians 3:6-7 says, “I have planted, (Pastor Morgan) Apolos (Pastor Jarrell) watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth anything, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.”, our prayer is that increase will come through Pastor Wayne’s ministry.”

Pastor Wayne, Kim, and Katlyn Porter Wayne Porter is now serving the church as pastor after serving as Associate Pastor with Pastor Jarrell for over ten years. Pastor Wayne places strong emphasis on personal soul-winning and discipleship of new converts.
