Gary and Josephine “J.C.” Montgomery are the directors of Living Stones International, a faith-based nonprofit that ministers to children of inmates at Wakulla Correctional Institution. They reach out to children of prisoners and reunite them with their fathers through […]

Kingdom Assignments Begin

In the 1980 hit movie The Blues Brothers, Dan Akroyd and the late John Belushi play the role of two brothers who reunite their band to save the orphanage they grew up in.

The Kingdom of God

The Kingdom of God

Fewer than four miles away from our church on Sunday, the kingdom of God sprouted and grew just a little bit more.

These clients are transitioning out of homelessness into sustainable living. […]

I attended law school here at FSU from 1990-1993 and moved away for about four years, returning to Tallahassee in 1997. I now consider Tallahassee home and love it […]

Welcome to the new FBCTLH.org

If you’re new to Tallahassee, the first time you see First Baptist is not through worship or Bible Study. It’s through the website. Before anyone visits, the first stop on the journey takes place long before they set foot on College Avenue. They visit www.fbctlh.org. When we first met together in April to talk about […]

A Year of Jubilee

As I shared Sunday, Love Tallahassee can be more than a moment. It can be a movement of God when we engage in sustainable Jubilee ministry across our community. Nehemiah was one of the first and possibly only examples we have in the Old Testament to implement a Jubilee year. Jesus embodied the message in […]
