Pastor Adam Longo became the pastor of the White Drive Baptist Church in the fall of 2007. He grew up in a pastor’s home where he accepted Christ as his Savior in October of 1977. Later he surrendered to the call of God on his life and dedicated his life to serving the Lord in full-time Christian ministry.
Pastor Longo served as the Executive Associate Pastor for ten years under the leadership of Pastor Dan Tidd at the Lighthouse Baptist Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. His ministry involvement encompassed many aspects of church experience ranging from youth to young couples, camps, conferences, community outreach and soul winning, along with a growing music department. After several years of prayer, regarding his burden for the many churches that were without pastoral leadership, Pastor Longo responded to God’s calling in his life to pastor.
The Lord has allowed the White Drive Baptist Church to strengthen the things that remain and to move forward by faith over the last few years. Our prayer, in this Decade of Development, is to renew, revive, and rebuild the work of God and the lives of people in Batesville, Arkansas.
God has blessed the White Drive Baptist Church and its ministries in miraculous ways through the years. However, we still believe that God has much more in store for the days ahead!
