In order to protect our children from potential abuse from adult volunteers, we as a church follow the HFBC Sexual Misconduct Prevention Policy. That whole policy can be accessed by clicking the link above.

Volunteer Workers must:

  • Have been a member for at least 3 months or a regular attendee of First Baptist Church for at least 6 months.
  • Complete a volunteer application and have the approval of the coordinator of the ministry in which they are serving.
  • Provide three personal references.
  • Sign an authorization/waiver for initial and possibly random criminal background checks.
  • View child abuse prevention training video and read any written materials provided.

If you have any questions about the policy you may call the Church Office (936.422.4311) or email one of our pastors ( or
