Congregation Spotlight: Second Baptist Church
Updated: Oct 7, 2021
This week’s Congregation Spotlight highlights Second Baptist Church located in Santa Ana, California. Second Baptist Church also has a second campus located in Lake Forest, California.We are incredibly grateful for our partnership with this wonderful congregation.
Second Baptist Church is led by Senior Pastor, Ivan S. Pitts. Pastor Pitts began working at Second Baptist Church in October of 2012 and has loved being able to show his passion and love for the teachings of the Bible and God in an energetic way. As a whole, this congregation welcomes all people who strive to learn more about the teachings of God and Jesus Christ, and desire to incorporate those teachings into their everyday lives.
We have been blessed to have Second Baptist Church serve as a host congregation for our families at their Santa Ana campus. Kelita Gardner and Daphne Perkins have helped coordinate the many volunteers who provide meals and support for our families during their stay. Last year during the pandemic, Second Baptist Church was also extremely gracious in allowing us to film our first ever Virtual Gala in their sanctuary. We were so thankful to be able to have a location during a very difficult time for everyone. Second Baptist Church is active not only in supporting the families in our program, but in supporting the Orange County community. We are grateful for their leadership and partnership! Thank you SBC Family!
