Jay Baines

Lead Pastor

Pastor Jay was saved at the age of 5 and later attended Southeastern Free Will Baptist College in Virginia Beach, VA (presently located in Wendell, NC) where he earned a BA in Pastoral Theology/Bible. He later continued his education at Liberty University and received a MAR in 2008.  He then completed his Master of Divinity from Liberty University in May of 2017. It was at Southeastern College that he met his wife,  Annette.   They have been married over thirty years and have three children.

Their hope and prayer for Great Bridge Church and Christian Academy, and the surrounding areas, is to influence people to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ and worship God in spirit and in truth.  It is their desire to influence the local people, the culture around them, and impact through various global ministries of the church and Christian Academy.  They desire to show the love of Jesus Christ by serving and meeting the needs of those who they have a privilege to serve.  You are invited to join us on this incredible journey and participate in the greatest ministry on earth…building the Kingdom of God.
