In 1976 at his annual Associational Spring Meeting, associational missionary John Carr shared his vision for a ministry to reach the Golden Isles area of southeast Georgia. When that faith seed was sown, roots began to spread among key Georgia Baptist leaders such as Jim Griffith, Henry Neal, and Jack Lowndes.
When First Baptist Church of Brunswick became involved, the roots began to sprout and a resort ministry became the fruit of their efforts. Jekyll Chapel (now a full-time mission church) was begun as a partnership evolved between the Georgia Baptist Convention, Southeast Baptist Association, and local Georgia Baptist churches.
For the last 15 years, Golden Isles Ministries has specialized in using students and adults of all ages on mission for Christ to take advantage of multiple mission efforts such as beach ministry, prayer walking, personal evangelism, campground ministry, day camps, sports camps, church planting, soup kitchens, and the downtown Baptist Ministry Center – from the resort to the inner city. Carr remembers one year when 300 professions of faith were registered and rarely is there a year below the average of 30 people coming to a saving faith in Jesus Christ.
