About SGBC  GRENADA

The St. George’s Baptist Church started with the conversion of Leon Edwards, who was incarcerated at the Richmond Hill Prison for murder. Edward’s conversion was influenced by a radio programme, sponsored by the Southern Baptist Convention, based in the United States of America.  Shortly after his conversion, Leon Edwards wrote to Baptist leaders from the USA and Jamaica, requesting the presence of a Baptist ministry in Grenada.  Following a general survey of the island in 1974, the Convention was convinced that it was an ideal time to send missionaries to Grenada. Missionaries Manget and Elaine Herrin were assigned to spearhead the work in Grenada. 

The Herrins began worship services on December 7, 1975, at the church’s first location on Tyrell Street. The membership at Tyrell Street grew very quickly and the building soon was too small to accommodate the influx of souls who had come to Christ.  In December 1977 the present property in Springs was bought and the church moved into the renovated building on the property.  With evangelism high on the church’s agenda, a decision was made to open a new church in Grand Anse with more than 20 of its members.

The Herrins served well until Pastor Osbert James (the first local pastor) was installed on June 15, 1982. Early programs such as the Discipleship hour which began in 1994 and the Deacon Family Ministry Plan grew out of the church’s keen desire to develop and advance lives. The church established a very strong Bible study program and had a thriving Sunday school department.

Under the present leadership of Rev. Stanford Simon the church is involved in a variety of radio programmes, such as “Motivational Moment,” “Encounter,” and “Today’s Sermon.” Through its dynamic history and current community involvement, St. George’s Baptist church has become a strong channel, bringing positive changes to all levels of society.

St. George’s Baptist Church is one of six branches island-wide.  We are affiliated with the Caribbean Baptist Fellowship, the Southern Baptist Convention and the Baptist World Alliance.
