Our Pastor


I want to welcome you to the online home of the Second Baptist Church in Ravenswood, WV. I trust that the content will help you better understand the heartbeat and ministries of SBC. If you call Ravenswood home, or passing through the Parkersburg/Ripley area, I want to personally invite you to be our guest at one of our services. I believe you will find the Second Baptist Church to be a family friendly church with a warm and welcoming heart. More than anything I'm concerned about your soul. If you are not 100% sure that you are going to Heaven please allow us to show you God's Simple Plan Of Salvation. Since 2003 God has allowed me to pastor some of the greatest people this side of Heaven, and I would count it an honour to meet, and minister to you and your family as well. -Dr. S. Richard Parsons
