Pastor: Rev. Terry Dorsett... grew up in central Illinois but moved to Lynchburg, Virginia as a teenager. It was there that he became active in one of America's largest congregations, Thomas Road Baptist Church. While in seminary he joined the pastoral staff at that church and learned important concepts about how to reach a community for Christ. He was later ordained by the church's' pastor, the late Rev. Jerry Falwell.
Terry and his wife Kay spent time doing youth ministry in South Carolina before moving to Vermont as church planting missionaries with the North American Mission Board (SBC) in 1993. Upon first arriving in Vermont they worked in village ministry in the small community of Washington, VT. While in that village their family grew to include their three children. After over 8 years of exciting service to that church and community Terry become the Director of the Green Mountain Baptist Association. In that role he helps plant churches and do strategic evangelism projects across the state.
Terry partnered with two other families to start Faith Community Church in the summer of 2004. After several months of Bible study in the Dorsett home, the small group began Sunday morning worship services in the conference room of a local motel. As the church grew they were able to buy their own building in 2007.
Terry has a passion for helping people who have never been in church regularly, or who have dropped out of church, rediscover an intimate walk with God. He continues to lead the ministries of the Green Mountain Baptist Association in addition to serving Faith Community Church.
