Southern Baptist


This Southern Baptist Church was established in 1835 and is located in Owensboro, Kentucky. We are a multi-generational, energetic and growing congregation with a cumulative weekly attendance of 450-500, currently across two Sunday morning services. A new sanctuary is under construction and expected to be complete in the summer of 2019.

Our members are active and engaged in thriving worship, children's, youth, missions, women's and sports ministries in an effort to impact this ever-changing culture with the never-changing love of Christ. Sunday School/Small Group ministries are a vital part of Pleasant Grove and help us stay connected as the church grows. We also enjoy Wednesday evening meals and discipleship classes as a church.

Our worship times together as a family are crafted to grow the believers while intentionally connecting with the communities around us. We desire for the worship we sing to be in response to God’s love, centered on truth, uniting for the church, and produce action in the lives of worshipers.

Staff includes a full-time worship and children's minister, full-time youth pastor who also leads in missions and recreation, full-time secretary and part-time custodian and maintenance personnel. The church also has a day care center with a staff of 30 serving 100 children.

BACKGROUND CHECKS: You Owe It To Your Church

A ministry that serves children and youth has the obligation to exercise “due diligence” with regards to protecting its members, especially the children. By performing background checks on your perspective ministers your church is…

  • Putting up a safeguard at the “doorway” of the organization that will, in most cases, scare off sexual predators.
  • Offering peace of mind to discerning parents when choosing a church, by knowing your ministry is being pro-active in trying to protect the children.

Protect My Ministry -

Protect My Ministry

Thousands of ministries trust Protect My Ministry, a ministry background check company. One of the only background check companies that will do a free “re-verification” of records from the national criminal database for a volunteer, and to also do a “true” 50 state search on sexual offenders.

Protect My Ministry is a Christian-owned and operated business, being 51% business and 49% ministry. This business was started as the co-owners noticed that churches were not fully aware of the best sources for background checks or truly what they were getting.
