Pastor: Tommy Thompson

Weekly Worship: Sundays at 11:00 AM, Central

Fast Facts: Pastor Tommy Thompson assumed the pastorate at Ashburn Baptist in 2019 following the founding pastor of 68 years, Vernon Lyons. The church was an established church in decline and in need of revitalization, but God is guiding them into a bright future.

Pastor Tommy sees the COVID-19 pandemic as an opportunity to magnify Jesus and offer hope to a world filled with anxiety. He recently preached “a fearful world needs a fearless church!” Pray for Pastor Tommy as he leads Ashburn Baptist during this difficult season, and for the church as they provide care to their members and community.

During the pandemic the church is providing online services on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. They are also providing a hotline for those who are feeling isolated or are in need of counseling. Please pray that Ashburn Baptist will be fearless as they minister and point others to Christ.
